The Race by Richard North Patterson
Corey Grace, the handsome, charismatic Republican senator from Ohio, is a refreshing change in politics. The decorated Gulf War veteran has a reputation for speaking his mind and voting his conscience rather than his party line. Now he's been plunged by an act of terrorism into the presidential race against his opponent, a magnetic leader of the Christian right. Unfortunately, he hides a tragic mistake in his past, which will put his integrity to the test during a brutal political campaign, forcing him to make moral choices.

The Heir by Barbara Taylor Bradford
Edward Deravenel had fought long and hard to build his business empire. Now, with the war over, an influenza epidemic sweeping 1918 England, and with his family and business to protect, he must thread his way between his loyal brother Richard and his treacherous younger brother, George. The politics of inheritance are intense, as different family factions vie for the honor. The choices include a caretaker, a rumormonger, a charming young woman, a sickly boy, and the scion of the family Edward ousted from power years before.

Home to Holly Springs by Jan Karon
Episcopal priest Father Tim has been mysteriously summoned to his hometown of Holly Springs, Miss. On the trip there, he encounters many fascinating people.

Pandora's Daughter by Iris Johansen
Megan Blair, a skilled and empathetic physician, attributes her caring nature to the fact that she lost her mother at such a young age, but unknowingly she's the carrier of psychic powers she inherited from her mother the day she died. These powers, which had been dormant for many years, are now coming to the boiling point. Someone is trying to kill Megan, and others are trying to use her, including the seductive Neal Grady, a man from her past who holds the key to understanding her future.

Become a Better You by Joel Osteen
It is possible to live a life filled with victory, hope, and purpose. Pastor Joel Osteen helps readers look outside themselves to become better spouses and parents, better colleagues, better community leaders, better friends, and to find that God has good things in store for them. It can all be obtained by following the seven simple action steps he lays out.


The Almost Moon by Alice Sebold
Helen Knightly has done the unthinkable. She's committed matricide. For years she had given her life to others: her haunted mother, her enigmatic father, her husband and now grown children. Then, she crossed a terrible boundary and her life came rushing in at her in a way she never could have imagined. Unfolding over a 24-hour period, the complex relationship between mothers and daughters, wives and lovers; the meaning of devotion; and the line between love and hate is explored.

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.'
