Need one? I can recommend a few! I recently read The Help and LOVED it. It was a page turner. Set in the early 1960s, it tells the story of white woman and the black maids who help raise them.
Another good book is The Middle Place. It's a memoir about life in "the middle place"...you know, that place when you have children, but still have parents. You are a mother, but still need some mothering yourself. Also a quick read, and one I could not put down.
Right now I'm reading Shutter Island. I'm not very far along, but it is pretty good. It's about to come out as a movie and I wanted to read it first. The author, Dennis Lehane, also wrote Mystic River which I never read because I saw the movie first. The movie was great, but I bet the book was better. For some reason, I can't motivate myself to read the book since I've seen the movie. I'm not letting that happen again!
