Here are my finds...

Ruby can take care of herself. She's used to counting on no one and answering to nobody. But all of that changes when her mother vanishes and Ruby is sent to live with her older sister, Cora. Now Ruby's got her own room in a fabulous new house, she's going to private school, and---for the first time---feeling as if she has a future. Plus, there's the adorable and sweet boy next door, Nate. Everything should be perfect. So why is Ruby so wary? And why is Nate keeping her at a distance? Ruby soon comes to realize that sometimes, in order to save yourself, you've got to reach out to someone else.

From the back cover of Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult

The discovery of a dead infant in an Amish barn shakes Lancaster County to its core. But the police investigation leads to a more shocking disclosure: circumstantial evidence suggests that eighteen-year-old Katie Fisher, an unmarried Amish woman believed to be the newborn's mother, took the child's life. When Ellie Hathaway, a disillusioned big-city attorney, comes to Paradise, Pennsylvania, to defend Katie, two cultures collide---and for the first time in her high-profile career, Ellie faces a system of justice very different from her own. Delving deep inside the world of those who live "plain," Ellie must find a way to reach Katie on her terms. And as she unravels a tangled murder case, Ellie also looks deep within---to confront her own fears and desires when a man from her past reenters her life.

From the back cover of Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult
June Nealon was looking forward to years full of laughter and adventure with her family, but now she is staring into a future as empty as her heart---waiting for time to heal her wounds, for justice, for a miracle.

Shay Bourne's life holds no surprises, until he gets one last chance for salvation that lies with June's young daughter, Claire. But between Shay and Claire are bitter regrets and the rage of a mother who has lost her child.

Father Michael devoted his life to God, but Shay makes him question everything he's been taught to believe about religion, about good and evil, about forgiveness. About himself.
What did you find???


  1. Nice books you founds! Here is my Friday Craving:

  2. I love all those books you found! Especially Plain Truth, it is SO good. Can't wait to hear what you think!

  3. This comment has been removed by the author.

  4. I like both of the authors, here's mine

  5. I have Plain Truth (picked it up for 25¢) but I have yet to read it. I've been told I won't really like Picoult, and I think there is a strong possibility, but for 25¢ it's worth a try.
