Carolyn Jessop’s Escape is about the struggles in a world devoid of happiness and rationality, a Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints polygamist society. After Carolyn endured the oppression of the cult for thirty-four years, her bravery carried her and her eight children to freedom. I highly recommend this unforgettable memoir.

Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami
15 year old Kafka runs away from home to abandon his abusive father, escape a gruesome Oedipal prophecy, and find his lost mother and sister. At the same time, an endearing mentally disabled old man (with the ability to talk to cats) murders an acclaimed sculptor…Earning both a World Fantasy Award and a spot on the New York Times 10 Best Books of 2005, Kafka on the Shore is steeped in mystery and philosophy. Intensely metaphysical, the thought-provoking novel Kafka on the Shore (by acclaimed master author Haruki Murakami) will captivate and astound you, I promise.
