The Stranger in the Mirror by Liv Constantine

Ages 18+

Addison is about to get married, but she’s nervous because she doesn’t really know who she is. A few years ago she was rescued by a kindly man who found her by the side of the road, but her memory never returned, so she made up a name and an identity.

In Boston, Julian is trying to figure out where his wife Cassandra is and why she would have disappeared two years ago and leave him and their seven-year-old daughter behind.

Constantine’s new novel is psychologically twisty and page-turny!

The Wedding Dress: A Novel

Danielle Steel’s novel spans from 1928 to the 1960s, following a family for generations. Starting with Eleanor’s coming out ball, this is her marriage story and the story of her children and her children’s children. I was engrossed in it from beginning to end. This was a lovely book that all generations will enjoy!
