by Charles R. Swindoll
PK says that "I am in the middle of reading this book and it is very good for a person who is depressed and feels like there is no hope. As Charles Swindoll says, "If you want to rejoice through times of suffering, just keep reminding yourself that what you're going through isn't the end of the story..its's simply the rough journey that leads to the right destination. I recommend this book to anyone who has been going through what I have been going through on my recent diagnosis of herpes." Check it out!

Pearlie, a granddaughter's story by Joy Horowitz
This is the heartwarming story a granddaughter tells of her two grandmothers. It is a wonderful book that has made me laugh and cry. I had the pleasure of knowing one of the "bubbes," which makes it all the more meaningful to me, but regardless, it is a wonderful tribute to two wonderful ladies. This is on Kate's "must-read" list.

A Bright Shining
Lie by Neil Sheehan
This is an ambitious undertaking but a fabulous read for anyone who is interested in the politics behind the Vietnam Conflict. Sheehan's research makes available political strategy and thought not even conceived by those writing first-hand accounts of the war and personalization not possible in the political analyses available.I originally read it for a book project in high school because the teacher said that I couldn't do it. Now I would recommend it as one of my all time favorite historical accounts.--Kate
