World Without End by Ken Follett
One day after Halloween, in 1327, four children slip away from the cathedral city of Kingsbridge. They are a thief, a bully, a boy genius and a girl who wants to be a doctor. Now, grown and different in many ways, the one thing each shares in common is the shadow they live under of the killing they witnessed years earlier.

Blonde Faith by Walter Mosley
Easy Rawlins, L.A.'s most reluctant detective, comes home one day to find Easter, the daughter of his friend Christmas Black, on his doorstep. Easy knows this means that Black, the ex-marine, is dead, or will be soon. Easter's appearance is just the beginning of Easy's problems. The love of his life is marrying someone else and his friend Mouse is wanted for murder. While searching for a clue to Christmas Black's whereabouts, two MPs hire him to find Black on behalf of the U.S.

Clapton: The Autobiography
Eric Clapton, raised by his grandparents, got his first guitar at the age of 13, and from then on his life turned around. He had been, up to that point, a 'nasty kid.' This is Clapton's remarkable story, from his first taste of fame with the band the Yardbirds, to the present, all told with honesty and his own dry sense of humor, including the story of his love affair with Beatle George Harrison's wife, Pattie Boyd, for whom Clapton wrote this famous ballad, 'Layla.'
