One thought on “Lisa’s Picks

  1. I see several favorites of mine on your lists, too, like Alice I Have Been, The Paris Wife, and Between Sisters. I’m currently reading The Language of Flowers (loving it, with the foster care theme). Here, Home, Hope is on my wish list.

    Thanks for sharing your favorites.
