Wow! Our bookclub just read this book, and the discussions we had didn't end! We ended up meeting again just so that everyone had their turn to discuss this complex, yet refreshing, novel that deals with the cascading effects of a man's infidelity on his rural Alaskan family. Everyone who reads this can relate to one the very believable characters. Check it out!

Product description:The Ghost of Anna
The Ghost of Anna follows the tempestuous journey of Maddie, whose heartbreak over her philandering husband turns to rage when he presents her with the newborn baby of his dead mistress. Demanded that she raise the child as her own, Maddie struggles between her desire for revenge and being true to the ideals that she holds for herself.
Set in Alaska, this is a story of bitter rivalries and unexpected friendships. The haunting landscape mirrors not only the propensity for darkness in the human soul, but also its unconquerable strength.

I'll check it out. We just used The Devil Wears Nada: Satan Exposed! and the conversations we had were a blast. It's witty and smart. Check it out.

Thanks for the rec. We're always on the lookout for something different!

I recommend ONCE UPON A TIME AT CALVARY by Benson C Saili. I'm a professor in Creative Writing and this book was written by my ex-student. It's the only fictional work I have ever recommended.

We loved Mao's Last Dancer. Everyone thought it was one of the best books we'd ever read. We also liked Russian Winter, and Shanghi Girls.

I recommend The Thief of Moments by T.R Hull. It brings up lots of interesting topics regarding euthanasia, dementia, and end of life questions. Very interesting read.

Thank you for all of your suggestions. I highly recommend IN MALICE, QUITE CLOSE by Brandi Lynn Ryder. We just finished this novel in our bookclub and it was one of the best literary fiction novels we'd ever read. The discussions that our group had was the best ever. Fabulous novel!!
