The New Year is definitely a time for turning over a new leaf, but it's also a great time for book lovers to find new page-turners for their book clubs. In an age where information and ideas fly around the world in the blink of an eye, it may be difficult to determine which titles would be the best for a book club, especially in light of the thousands of potential choices there are for any given genre. Below is a list of suggested reads for 2015 that will serve as great catalysts for engaging book club discussions.
1. The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd - Early nineteenth century life is particularly stifling for Hetty "Handful" Grimke, a slave working for the wealthy Grimke family in Charleston. The novel gets set in motion when 11-year-old Sarah, the Grimke's oldest daughter, encounters 10-year-old Handful for the first time. The story then follows Sarah and Handful on a thirty-five year journey that marks how their lives intertwine and influence each other throughout the years.
2. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green - Now a major motion picture, The Fault in Our Stars explores the brilliant, thrilling and yet heartbreaking story of Hazel, a young woman who has been diagnosed with a terminal disease. Her life takes an unexpected and amazing turn when she encounters the unique Augustus Waters at one of her Cancer Kids Support Groups.
3. Dominion by C.J. Sansom - This harrowing tale falls under the category of "speculative history", in that it depicts a world in which Great Britain has fallen under ruthless Nazi rule. David Fitzgerald, a spy working for Churchill's Resistance but posing as a civil servant, has been given the task of infiltrating a mental hospital and rescuing the brilliant but eccentric scientist Frank Muncaster, who just may hold the key to a discovery that could alter the balance of global power forever.
4. Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline - Fans of Christina Baker Kline will more than likely regard this novel as her most ambitious work yet. Orphan Train explores an unexpected and unlikely relationship between Vivian Daly, a 91-year-old recluse who lives a quiet life on the coast of Maine, and Molly Ayer, a troubled 17-year-old who is about to be "aged out" of the foster care system. As part of a bid to help her stay out of juvenile hall, Molly takes on the assignment of helping Vivian clean out her home. In the midst of uncovering trunks of old papers, photos and memories, Molly discovers that Vivian was also an orphan, and that their lives are strikingly similar.
