Kerry Anne King recommends
Wish Me Home (2017)
Kay Bratt
"In this inspiring story of a woman’s search for the deepest wish of her heart, Bratt paints a realistic portrait of the dark side of the foster care system, while simultaneously reminding us that there is always hope, and that home and family can be found in unexpected places."
Not Perfect (2018)
Elizabeth LaBan
"Not Perfect is a captivating story about keeping up appearances, written with a perfect blend of humor and drama. Tabitha is delightfully human and flawed, and her struggle to preserve the balance of her world in the face of her missing husband (where is Stuart, anyway?) is highly relatable. A fun read that manages to also be thought-provoking."
Matchmaking for Beginners (2018)
Maddie Dawson
"Matchmaking for Beginners walked straight into my heart, trailing a shower of golden sparkles. Dawson has created a magical world inhabited by characters so engaging and real it seems plausible they might drop by for a cup of coffee. By turns funny, wise, and poignant, this is a story about falling in love—with the painful, messy, joyful business of living."
When We Believed in Mermaids (2019)
Barbara O'Neal
"When We Believed in Mermaids is a deftly woven tale of two sisters, separated by tragedy and reunited by fate, discovering that the past isn’t always what it seems. By turns shattering and life affirming, as luminous and mesmerizing as the sea by which it unfolds, this is a book club essential—definitely one for the shelf!"

Melissa Payne
"A compelling story of hidden secrets and the forgiveness that finds us when we least expect it."
The Other Family (2020)
Loretta Nyhan
"Through the eyes of Ally Anderson, a delightfully vulnerable and surprisingly powerful woman who will stop at nothing on her quest to cure her daughter’s mysterious illness, Nyhan redefines the traditional boundaries of family and reminds us that strength can be displayed in unexpected and unusual ways. I loved every minute of this book and its cast of lovable, eccentric people—don’t miss it!"
Dignity and Grace (2020)
Alison Ragsdale
"Dignity and Grace is the atmospheric, heartwarming story of a young woman retracing the steps of her mother's last journey, on which she uncovers long buried secrets and difficult truths about the people she loves. Ragsdale confronts the emotionally charged issues of a tragic death with sensitivity, courage, and forgiveness."
The Last of the Moon Girls (2020)
Barbara Davis
"Woven through the compelling mystery and suspense that keep the pages of The Last of the Moon Girls turning is a story of a powerful family legacy and the discovery of the best kind of magic--that of embracing our own gifts and finding our place in the world. A glorious, shimmering read that resonated in my soul long after I finished reading."
A Frenzy of Sparks (2020)
Kristin Fields
"Through the eyes of a naive girl precariously balanced on the brink of womanhood, Fields expertly portrays the brutal and crushing devastation of addiction without ever losing sight of all that is beautiful and good. Profoundly moving and insightful—a book club must-read!"
The Family Ship (2021)
Sonja Yoerg
"Building on the metaphor of a landlocked ship on which the children of a large and close-knit family have long engaged in a complex game of make-believe, The Family Ship explores the dynamics of love and betrayal, tragedy and healing. Yoerg has crafted a refreshingly unusual and beautifully written story about the ways grief can both break us apart and bring us together."
The Memory Collectors (2021)
Kim Neville
"In this atmospheric and beautifully written novel, Neville weaves for us a world in which ordinary objects retain the imprint of strong emotions and influence the moods and actions of the people they touch. By turns heartbreaking, terrifying, and beautiful, The Memory Collectors is ultimately a triumphant tale of redemption and forgiveness."
A Song for the Road (2021)
Kathleen Basi
"In a novel filled with music, heartbreak, and surprising laughter, Basi takes us on a journey that encompasses both unimaginable loss and the powerful resilience of the human heart. A book club must read."
The Next Ship Home (2022)
Heather Webb
"Centered around Ellis Island-symbol of America's greatest hopes and scene of some of her greatest travesties-The Next Ship Home is the heart-wrenching story of two young women fighting for freedom and independence. In this timely and utterly immersive story, Webb unflinchingly exposes the prejudice, sexism, and corruption rampant with the immigration system of the times while still weaving in hope that we can do and be better."
Crazy To Leave You (2022)
Marilyn Simon Rothstein
"On the surface, Crazy to Leave You is a funny, lighthearted story. But underlying Rothstein's signature humor and wry, engaging voice is the shattering dilemma of every woman who has ever believed that she is not enough - not thin enough, not successful enough, not loved enough. Lauren's journey to loving herself is one to which we can all relate. I think every book club is going to want this one!"
