Traveling Mercies:  Some Thoughts on Faith by Anne Lamott (1999).  Sometimes rambling, generally entertaining look at the people and life experiences that assisted Anne Lamott in creating her personal brand of faith.

The Special Power of Restoring Lost Things by Courtney Elizabeth Mauk (2016).  [Disclaimer:  Read for free as a pre-release due to Kindle First.]  A year after Jennifer disappears after leaving an NYC nightclub with an unidentified man, we meet her parents and younger brother, thoughtfully explored through their internal thoughts and their views of each other, as they are after the worst imaginable experience for a family.  This book is going to stay with me for quite a while.  Great characters.  Sad story.  The ending--half of it I really liked; half of it didn't strike me as being possible.

We Come to Our Senses:  Stories by Odie Lindsey (2016).  Dark, gripping stories that cover the varied experiences of American service members after their return to the Southern United States.  Difficult to read, yet important to read.
