I recently finished "Chinaberry Sidewalks" by Rodnew Crowell,, and "Composed" by Roseanne Cash. Both were time well spent IMO. Another good one is "Isaac's Storm", a historical novel about the Galveston storm of 1900. I really got into that one. It's hard to imagine how horrible it would've been to go through it, and then later to have survived and have to clean it up. Also, I almost forgot (not sure how) "Lincoln in the Bardo". Another winner.
