Title: 
Summer on Blossom Street

Summer on Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber
Upbeat cancer survivor Lydia and her pragmatic sister, Margaret, start a "Knit to Quit" group in their Blossom Street yarn store in Seattle, bringing in a delightful assortment of customers for weekly self-help sessions, including a local baker who wants a baby as much as Lydia does, a super-stressed chocolate magnate who takes the knitting class after his doctor suggests it, and a young woman who is trying to quit obsessing about a broken engagement.

Title: 
The Last American Man

The Last American Man by Elizabeth Gilbert
In 1977, at the age of 17, Eustace Conway left his family's comfortable suburban home to move to the Appalachian Mountains. For more than two decades he has lived there, making fire with sticks, wearing skins from animals he has trapped, and trying to convince Americans to give up their materialistic lifestyles and return with him back to nature. To author Gilbert, Conway's mythical character challenges all our assumptions about what it is to be a modern man in America; he is a symbol of much we feel how our men should be, but rarely are.

Title: 
A Fraction of the Whole

A Fraction of the Whole by Steve Toltz
For most of his life, Jasper Dean couldn't decide whether to pity, hate, love, or murder his certifiably paranoid father, Martin, a man who overanalyzed anything and everything and imparted his self-garnered wisdom to his only son. But now that Martin is dead, Jasper can fully reflect on the crackpot who raised him in intellectual captivity, and what he realizes is that, for all its lunacy, theirs was a grand adventure.

Title: 
The Faith Club

The Faith Club by Ranya Idliby
Three women -- a Jew, a Christian, and a Muslim -- came together to write a book about their religious traditions, but realized they had differences to sort through first. Over time, the three women began to call their group a 'faith club,' and, as a result, each discovered stronger faith in their religions than they'd had before. An honest, unflinching look at stereotypes, misconceptions, and the power of faith.

Title: 
The Third Jesus

The Third Jesus by Deepak Chopra
Deepak Chopra provides an answer to this question that is both a challenge to current systems of belief and a fresh perspective on what Jesus can teach us all, regardless of our religious background. There is not one Jesus, Chopra writes, but three: the historical Jesus, the Son of God, and the cosmic Christ, the spiritual guide whose teaching embraces all humanity, not just the church built in his name. He speaks to the individual who wants to find God as a personal experience, to attain what some might call grace, or God-consciousness, or enlightenment.

Looking For Salvation at Dairy Queen

Looking For Salvation at Dairy Queen by Susan Gregg Gilmore
Every Saturday, Catherine sits at the Dairy Queen, plotting her getaway to Atlanta. When the dream becomes a reality, she immediately leaves everything to claim the life she’s always imagined. But before things have even begun to get off the ground in Atlanta, tragedy brings Catherine Grace back home. As a series of extraordinary events alter her perspective–and sweeping changes come to Ringgold itself–she begins to wonder if her place in the world may actually be, against all odds, right where she began.
