A Banquet of Consequences
by Elizabeth George

One of my favorite authors is Elizabeth George.  If you are looking for a great read of crime-fiction, then this is it.  Couldn’t put it down. I read a lot of spiritual and self-help books, so this is just a totally different read.

The Stranger in the Lifeboat
by Mitch Albom

One of my favorite authors!  Always, thought provoking I think this is the one that has stirred me more than any – and believe me, I am always stirred up by reading all the books he has written.  This one, questions the intervention of the divine.  Interesting, compiling and a book that I had to put down everyone couple of days and just ponder. 

In some ways so different from the Boy, the mole, the fox and the Horse and in some ways not at all.

The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse
by Charlie Mackesy.

 I received this book from Mars daughter Fee who sent it to me for his birthday.  If that wasn’t thoughtful enough the book is probably the most beautiful book that has ever been in my hands.  It is a book that I pick up often and just open the page to see what beautiful message there is.  The pages are full of art and messages of love, and kindness. 

In my opinion, everyone must, simply must, have this book their library – trust me you won’t be disappointed.
