Title: 
Ice Bound : A Doctor's Incredible Battle for Survival at the South Pole

It was splashed across every newspaper in 1999: a woman doctor in Antarctica finds a lump in her breast and after performing her own biopsy realizes that she has a particularly aggressive form of cancer. But no planes can land during the long winter months, and she must administer her own chemotherapy. That woman was Nielsen, and this is her story of her battle with cancer and the extreme conditions of the South Pole. Alone and scared, Nielsen describes the feelings that washed over her that long winter. Part adventure story, part journal of self-discovery, her book is written in an easy-flowing narrative voice. She regales us with tales of parties like the one celebrating her 47th birthday and then horrifies us as she recounts how she e-mailed her family when she found the lump. No matter what the passage, Nielsen mesmerizes readers as she carries them along for a ride of a lifetime. Read more about Tuesday Night Book Club: Ice Bound

Title: 
The Color of Light

Newly divorced and pregnant with her second child, Jillian Parrish seeks refuge in the South Carolina island community where she spent her childhood summers. Though Pawley's Island is the only place she feels truly at home, she is haunted by childhood memories of her parents' troubled marriage and the unsolved disappearance of her best friend, Lauren, especially when she reconnects with a friend who was implicated in the disappearance. When Grace, her precocious seven-year-old, begins to communicate with an imaginary friend named Lauren, information is revealed that will irrevocably change the lives of the island's inhabitants.

Title: 
The True and Outstanding Adventures of the Hunt Sisters

Olivia Hunt is unemployed, living alone, and working on the fourth draft of her suicide note when she gets a phone call that lets her know what real trouble is. Madeleine Hunt is her younger sister, the annoyingly happy one who married the hometown guy while Olivia set out to conquer Hollywood, ha, ha. And Maddie is in trouble. Pulled home for the first time in years, Olivia gets a painful dose of real life as she tries to help her sister, keep her parents from running off the rails, and reconnect with the boyfriend who left without a word but might still be the love of her life. And, of course, the movie she's been trying to put in front of cameras for years heats up just as she leaves town. Racing between Hollywood, hospital rooms, and film sets in Spain, Olivia has to do the impossible at work and at home--and learns that love will let her do no less. By turns charming, heartrending, and hilarious, The True and Outstanding Adventures of the Hunt Sisters is a novel for anyone who has ever loved a sister (or a great story).
