Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I haven't read any of those books from your list, but I definitel jotted down a few. My favorite reads this past year were basically ALL of Jodi Picoult's books. My current read is The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd! I'm only on Chapter 2, but so far so good!

I saw you were a Picoult fan. I love all of her books (well, I haven't read The Songs of the Humpback Whale yet, but the rest I loved). Anyway, I meant to suggest Elizabeth Berg or Anna Quindlen to you.

Hi Roxie!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, too!
I also love Ann Patchett -- I saw her listed on your blog.

Thanks for the recommendations!

Where are you in Maine, and how old are your kiddos? My son Stephen is 18 months old, and we live in Boothbay.

Feel free to shoot me an email!
