My Name is Mary Sutter by Robin Oliveira. I loved this book. It takes place during the Civil War and Mary Sutter is a midwife who wants to be a surgeon. Interesting historical fiction with a great story.
Giants in the Earth: A Saga of the Prairie (Perennial Classics): Ole Edvart Rolvaag. The harsh existence on the prairie has never been better written than Rolvaag's book. Forty years after first reading it it still haunts me.
Book Club Pick - A beautiful story of accepting, forgiveness and love
