Hi Everyone

I am looking for suggestions of books that my small group from church can read. Last year we read a Karen Kingsbury book. It was great since she has questions in the back of the book to help the discussion keep going.

Please help. Thanks, Kathy

Kathy,

A few recent books that I have read that would be good are:  White Chocolate Moments - Lori Wick, and Happily Ever After - Susan May Warren.  You can also never go wrong with any of Francine Rivers books.  They are wonderful!

I just had a lady email me to preview the new Book Club Kit for Christians - it sounds perfect for what you are looking for - you can check it out at - http://www.christianbookpreviews.com/bookcluborder.php  The first book they are offering in a kit is The Restorer by Sharon Hinck and I can not begin to tell you how great a book study that book would be!  You can read an interview with Sharon Hinck on my blog at: www.cornhuskeracademy.blogspot.com/2007/12/4th-most-entertaining-book-of-2007-is.html


You can also see alot of other really great books that I just reviewed and interviewed the authors about at the same place.  Hope that helps!

Renee's suggestions are all great too - though I would add Sophie's Heart by Lori Wick - that is a great book too!

The Mark of the Lion series by Francine Rivers is excellent, and there is a discussion guide in the back of them (at least in my copies).
