That Certain Summer by Irene Hannon. Karen and Val are family-yet they’re anything but close. Karen has carried the responsibility for her aging mother ever since her Val left town to pursue a career in theater. But Val had darker reasons for leaving town and coming home has never been an option, until their mother suffers a stroke. Reunited, Karen and Val must grapple with past mistakes, their relationship with each other, and their issues with a difficult mother. When two men enter the picture, the summer changes. Can they learn to forgive, let go, and move on.

A Mother Held Hostage by Barbara Borntrager. This book is for those who know they don’t have it all together; life is crazy, difficult, disappointing, and sometimes downright impossible. It is for mothers and caretakers of special needs children who struggle with doubts, guilt, and crushed dreams. I survived, and you can too!

Captive in Iran by Maryam Rostampour. Enter Evin, the notorious Tehran prison, and witness two Christian women bring light and grace to one of the world’s darkest places. Recounting their 259 days in captivity, Rostampour and Amirizadeh share how they offered God’s love and compassion to their guards and fellow prisoners, and how strangers from around the world fought for their release.
