You stated that you liked "I Know This Much is True" by Wally Lamb and
like the "inspirational fiction" genre.

There are many books that deal with difficult or emotional topics, but
in an ultimately uplifting and/or redemptive manner. Some suggestions:

Deep End of the Ocean by Jacquelyn Mitchard - the story of a son,
seemingly lost forever, and the emotional toll his absence and eventual
return on his family.

Prince of Tides by Pat Conroy - A story of a terrible childhood trauma
that reverberates well into adulthood. Written with dark, poetic
beauty.

The Rapture of Canaan by Sheri Reynolds - a redemptive tale of the power
- and the abuse of power - in religion.

The All of It by Jeannette Haien - Even on her husband's death bed, Enda
doesn't want to tell their shocking secret.

I hope you enjoy these titles. They are all available from the Central
Rappahannock Regional Library. If you have a library card with us, we
would be happy to put any or all of them on hold for you.
