Escape by Carolyn Jessop with Laura Palmer
Twenty Wishes by Debbie Macomber
Freedom: The Story of My Second Life by Malika Oufkir and Linda Coverdale
Swimming Lessons by Mary Alice Monroe

I'm honored you managed to squeeze in Big Green Purse given all the other reading you did! Thanks for the shout out, and have a great New Year.
