The Island by Elin Hinderbrand

Birdie Cousins has planned a getaway with her daughter Chess on rustic, charming Tuckernuck Island off the coast of Nantucket, a chance to bond before Chess's upcoming marriage.

The Recessionistas by Alexandra Lebenthal

It's the day after Labor Day, 2008, and the bottom is about the drop out of the economy. Hedge fund owner John Cutter is in the process of an ugly divorce and nearly in financial ruin, except for the assets he is hiding from his wife Mimi in the Cayman Islands. When he concocts a scheme to redeem himself, he enlists Lehman Brothers investment banker Blake Somerset as an accomplice. Blake is ripe for recruitment given that he too is on the verge of being in dire financial straits given Lehman's decline and imminent bankruptcy.

Rich Boy by Sharon Pomerantz

Robert Vishniak is the favored son of Oxford Circle, a working-class Jewish neighborhood in 1970s Philadelphia. Handsome and clever, Robert glides into the cloistered universities of New England, where scions of unimaginable wealth and influence stand shoulder to shoulder with scholarship paupers like himself who wash dishes for book money. The doors that open there lead Robert to the highest circles of Manhattan society during the heart of the Reagan boom where everything Robert has learned about women, through seduction and heartbreak, pays off.

  Backseat Saints by Joshilyn Jackson

Rose Mae Lolley is a fierce and dirty girl, long-suppressed under flowery skirts and bow-trimmed ballet flats. As "Mrs. Ro Grandee" she's trapped in a marriage that's thick with love and sick with abuse. Her true self has been bound in the chains of marital bliss in rural Texas, letting "Ro" make eggs, iron shirts, and take her punches. She seems doomed to spend the rest of her life battered outside by her husband and inside by her former self, until fate throws her in the path of an airport gypsy---one who shares her past and knows her future.

  • Rose Johnson Says:

  • Stefanie Hoffman Says:

    I just finished A Widow For One Year, by John Irving . It was one of the best books I have ever read.
    John Irving’s A Widow For One Year is the epic story of a family, dysfunctional at best, unable to cope with tragedy–or with each other.
    We first meet Ruth Cole in the summer of 1958 when she walks in on her mother having sex with 16-year-old Eddie O’Hare, the assistant to Ruth’s alcoholic father. The death of Ruth’s older brothers (years before she was born) turns her mother, Marion, into a zombie who is unable to love her surviving daughter. Ted Cole is a semisuccessful writer and illustrator of disturbingly creepy children’s novels. His womanizing habits prove he’s “as deceitful as a damaged condom,” but he remains the only stable figure in Ruth’s life. The tempestuous tale fast-forwards to the year 1990 when Ruth’s soaring writing career is faring far better than her lackluster love life. The final segment of the novel ends in 1995 when 41-year-old Ruth is ready to fall in love for the first time.

  • Crystal Russell Says:

    I am a Kindle reader the majority of the time, but DO LOVE the smell and feel of a good old fashioned book now and then...
