You should read one of these!

Here are some more recommndations from Barker Library patrons like you:

Fall of Giants by Ken Follett
"Good historical novel. The first of three. This covers WWI period....and follows four families. Very worthwhile. Can't wait for #2!"

Fool by Christopher Moore
"A re-telling of Shakespeare's King Lear from the point of view of the court jester - who's the one instigating it all."

"Author Louise Penny's mysteries are very good."

Happy reading!
