I can’t say that I have a favorite book. I love to read, and have read many books that I would willingly recommend. The starred ones have actually brought me to tears. I have also read some that I loved, and hesitate to recommend for fear of offending someone. If you read a summary or someone’s review, I’m sure you’ll know which ones those are. I’ve linked the titles to the website Goodreads.com where you can see what the book looks like, who it’s by, and maybe read reviews. Goodreads also links to several purchasing sites so you can choose which storefront you like if you want to buy a copy. Or, check them out at the library in person or online at Overdrive.com.
