I hadn't updated my book list on the sidebar all summer so I did that this morning. A couple that I really enjoyed and recommend:
Eat Love Pray by Elizabeth Gilbert - The subtitle of this memoir really tells the story: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia
At many points in this book, I felt like I was looking in a mirror.
Without a Map by Meredith Hall - Terrific memoir about a woman who became pregnant as a teen in the 60s, was forced to give the baby up for adoption and the subsequent ramifications on her life. Interesting look at forgiveness.
Lucia, Lucia by Adriana Trigiani - Cute, quick read by the author of the Big Gap series, which I also loved. About a young Italian woman in the 50s who is torn between marrying and giving up her seamstress career.
