Friday Finds


Friday Finds hosted by Should Be Reading asks us to share what great books we heard about or discovered in the past week.

I came across these books while browsing a friend's library on Librarything.com.

Dream House by Valerie Laken

What price will people pay to hold their homes and dreams together?

When Kate and Stuart Kinzler buy a run-down historic house in Ann Arbor, Michigan, they're hoping their grand renovation project can rescue their troubled marriage. Instead, they discover that years ago their home was the scene of a terrible crime—and the revelation tips the balance of their precarious union.

When a mysterious man begins lurking around her yard, Kate, now alone, is forced to confront her home's dangerous past. Hers is not the only life that has crumbled under this roof. This man's family also disintegrated here, as the result of one brief act of rage that may haunt him—and this house—for years to come.

Katrina's Wings by Patricia Hickman

A rich, reassuring, coming-of-age tale for the dreamer in us all

For every woman who has come into her own or is striving to find her way in the world, Katrina's Wings honors and explores the desire to break free from childhood constraints and soar into the future. A tale of redemption, love, and triumph set entirely in the Deep South, Patricia Hickman's novel offers an intimate, occasionally painful, and frequently humorous glimpse into the lives of two sisters who take different paths in life, yet wind up at the same discovery: Miracles show up in the most unexpected places.

Dream House sounds soooo good. I am adding that one to my list.

Hmm, the central idea of Dream House reminds me a bit of The House of Sand and Fog--with a house representing much more than just a house! Nice picks.

My Friday Find is over at bookwanderer!
