In This Mountain by Jan Karon: Part of the Mitford series. I have enjoyed these books very much. It has been refreshing to read something without sex, violence, and foul language. I'd suggest starting at the beginning of the series and reading through to this book. It's a good read and very enjoyable if you like the Mitford stories. It has Scripture quotes in it and prayer is a part of the lives of the main characters but I don't find it done in an overbearing manner.

Nanny Diaries: Not worth purchasing. Definitely check it out of the library, IMHO. It's a very light read.

I finished The Secret Life of Bees yesterday. It was very good. I read it in less than 24 hours! Great characters and a great story, although somewhat sad. Very well written. I would love to read more by this author, I believe this is her first book, but I'm not certan.
