Margaret Mitchell’s monumental epic of the South won a Pulitzer Prize, gave rise to the most popular motion picture of our time, and inspired a sequel that became the fastest selling novel of the century. It is one of the most popular books ever written: more than 28 million copies of the book have been sold in more than 37 countries. Today, more than 60 years after its initial publication, its achievements are unparalleled, and it remains the most revered American saga and the most beloved work by an American writer.

When Winter’s dad goes missing during his nightly patrol of the wood, it falls to her to patrol the time portals and protect the travelers who slip through them. Winter can’t help but think there’s more to her dad’s disappearance than she’s being told.

She soon finds a young man traveling in the wood named Henry who knows more than he should. He believes if they can work together to find his missing parents, they could discover the truth about Winter’s dad.

The wood is poisoned, changing into something sinister—torturing travelers lost in it. Winter must put her trust in Henry in order to find the truth and those they’ve lost.

Long Road to Mercy by David Baldacci
#1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci introduces a remarkable new character: Atlee Pine, an FBI special agent assigned to the remote wilds of the western United States. Ever since her twin sister was abducted by a notorious serial killer at age five, Atlee has spent her life hunting down those who hurt others. And she’s the best at it. She could be one of the Bureau’s top criminal profilers, if she didn’t prefer catching criminals in the vast wilderness of the West to climbing the career ladder in the D.C. office. Her chosen mission is a lonesome one–but that suits her just fine.

Now, Atlee is called in to investigate the mutilated carcass of a mule found in the Grand Canyon–and hopefully, solve the disappearance of its rider. But this isn’t the only recent disappearance. In fact, it may be just the first clue, the key to unraveling a rash of other similar missing persons cases in the canyon.

I'm an avid reader and love most all books, but my favorite genres tend to be mystery, adventure, science fiction and classics. Genres I tend to shy away from include romance, contemporary fiction and chick lit. If I’m not actually reading books, I’m probably at work shelving them at my local library.

      I usually hate reading series books as soon as they come out because it makes the wait to long for the next book, but i’ve heard such great stuff about it. 🙂

        (when I use all caps it means I am very demure and calm)

        (the whole book is a study of a woman’s psychology)

        (she is not well, m’dear)

        (and you want to hate her)

        (but there is much to admire)

        (and frankly m’dear she is steel)

          lol. 😀 Nope I know nothing about it but I def want to read it soon. Soo many people are talking about it now. Also, I’m a psych major, so that really appeals to me. 😀 That kind of reminds me of Moby Dick… Captain Ahab was thoroughly unlikeable but I really enjoyed analyzing and assessing him. 🙂

            That’s what Margaret Mitchell wanted to study!! She was intrigued by psychology & planned to become a psychologist. But her mother died of Spanish influenza in 1919. She ended up leaving college to help her father and brother, and never went back. One of her favorite reviews of Gone with the Wind came from a psychologist. She often read medical journals for leisure, ha ha. 🙂

            Wow, that’s so interesting. I’m gonna look into her more when I start reading the book. 😀
