A Few Books to Inspire and Uplift

M. E. Raines "Author of UNA and THE LAUGHING CHERUB GUIDE TO PAST-LIFE REGRESSION"
The list author says: "Each of these books in this very eclectic list has inspired, uplifted or moved me in in a profound way. I have been a different person after reading them. (This list is incomplete, and will be expanded.)"
The Help Deluxe Edition
The Help Deluxe Edition
"There is good reason that this book has become a best-seller. It will entertain, while deepening your compassion and broadening your insights into the prejudices of the south in the 1960s."
Winter's Tale
Winter's Tale
"Helprin wrote these wonderful words years ago in anticipation of the milennium. It remains a fantastical, whimsical, brilliantly written and moving tale unlike anything else you will ever read. It is not, per se, a story of inspiration, but I include it because pieces of this book have remained with me and my soul for decades."
Eden's Outcasts: The Story of Louisa May Alcott and Her Father
Eden's Outcasts: The Story of Louisa May Alcott and Her Father
"John Matteson won a Pulitzer Prize for this exquisitely written and insightful biography of Bronson and Louisa May Alcott. Probing deeply into the Alcott's lives and psyches, it is worth reading just to enjoy how beautifully the author puts words together."
Una

"Set on the edges of the holocaust, this uplifting book is about the journey of a pampered woman as she is thrust into a struggle for survival, and her transformation from weakness to strength...a page turner with many layers."
My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist's Personal Journey
My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist's Personal Journey
"A remarkable, clear, and unexpectedly inspiring book about the recovery of a brain scientist who has a stroke."
Love Poems from God: Twelve Sacred Voices from the East and West (Compass)
Love Poems from God: Twelve Sacred Voices from the East and West (Compass)
"For the spiritually inclined, these liberally translated poems are sometimes fun, sometimes deep, sometimes astonishing, and always profoundly touching."
For Those I Loved
For Those I Loved
"The autobiography of Martin Gray, a holocaust survivor, is one of the most riveting stories I have ever read. When I finished, I wanted to scream to the world: everyone must read this book!"
Zorba the Greek
Zorba the Greek
"The great book about the great Zorba! This is a classic. It will inspire you to laugh, to cry, and to live life to the fullest."
The Martian Chronicles
The Martian Chronicles
"This is a classic collection of science fiction stories by the master, Ray Bradbury. They aren't just absorbing and entertaining; they look into the human condition in a way that only science fiction can. Like all the other books on the list, this is included because it remained with me and somehow affected my soul."
The Discoverers
The Discoverers
"Ranging from the origins of clocks to the way ancient memory schools were formed, Boorstin's remarkable book opens new channels of curiosity and thought."
To Kill a Mockingbird: 50th Anniversary Edition
To Kill a Mockingbird: 50th Anniversary Edition
