- “The Shadow of the Wind” by Carlos Ruiz Zafón. I have read this twice. It has the best location for a story to begin…..The Cemetery of Lost Books. A fascinating story and wonderful characters.
- “Year of Wonders” by Geraldine Brooks. An historical fiction novel that recounts the year in an English village that is dealing with the plague. Thought provoking and a great ending.
- “Shutter Island” by Dennis Lehane. Let’s see… We have two characters on a boat, heading to an island for the criminally insane with a hurricane approaching. Has to be exciting, right?
