Listed below are some of Amy's favorite books:
CANE RIVER is an incredible act of love. Astory of three generations of strong women, slaves and the complexity of their lives, and the importance of family. Lalita Tademy has imbued life and blood into her family history, capturing you with her first sentence and only releasing you with her final word.
David, a 12-year-old mourning the death of his mother, enters another world where every fairy tale lives. A world that encompasses many things we wish for: beauty, wonder, adventure, and redemption -- as well as many of our fears: loss, danger, hopelessness. John Connolly's incredible writing draws you into this story of stories, which is ultimately about hope.
