Another new author I found during the summer of 2011 is Rene Gutteridge. I read two of her books, and they are as different as day and night.
At home she reconnects with her mother and many secrets are revealed. This almost 400 page book was hard to put down, and I ordered a copy from Amazon to send to my 92-year-old mother who reads even more than I do. What a great book.
Both these books are Christian fiction. I hope to be able to read more books by this author.
