Reading Ahead: February 2016, part 4

Need a novel set to warm your heart on a winter's day? We've got just the ticket!

A Girl’s Guide to Moving On, by Debbie Macomber. In Macomber's latest, a mother and her daughter-in-law bravely leave their troubled marriages and face the challenge of starting over. Leaning on each other, Nichole and Leanne discover that their inner strength and capacity for love are greater than they ever imagined. Macomber's work has been described to me as easy-reading with a heart of gold. Also available in Large Print.

Blue, by Danielle Steel. Actually being published at the end of January (tricky publishers and their last minute changes!), Steel's newest novel finds Ginny Carter, who was once a rising star in TV news, married to a top anchorman, with a three-year-old son and a full and happy life in Beverly Hills—until her whole world dissolved in a single instant on the freeway two days before Christmas. In the aftermath, she pieces her life back together and tries to find meaning in her existence as a human rights worker in the worst areas around the globe.
Then, on the anniversary of the fateful accident—and wrestling with the lure of death herself—she meets a boy who will cause her life to change forever yet again. Thirteen-year-old Blue Williams has been living on the streets, abandoned by his family, rarely attending school, and utterly alone. Following her instincts, Ginny reaches out to him. Leery of everyone, he runs from her again and again. But he always returns, and each time, their friendship grows. Also available in Large Print.
