Hi all,

I am looking for a good uplifting novel for a new online book club that I am starting in the fall. The book club is called Finding the Treasure.  You are all welcome to join.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks Linda

My novel, Goodbye Emily, takes a positive look at our ageing baby boomer generation. Though the three main characters face serious issues, they learn to approach life through optimism and humor. Goodbye Emily will be released by Koehler Books in January. http://www.amazon.com/Goodbye-Emily-Michael-Murphy/dp/1938467213/re...

Thanks, I will put this on our list of potential books.



It sounds like you're looking for a fiction book, correct?  What sort of genre are you looking for (or to eliminate)?  It might make suggestions easier.

My novel,Journey to Almighty, is a contemporary Christian romance but deals with "real" life situations like drug & alcohol abuse, domestic violence but with a Christian message.  It also has discussion questions in the back for groups.

Paul Kareem Tayyar's new book In the Footsteps of the Silver King is really fun. It follows his character as he searches San Francisco for his father's silver soccer medal.

My novel, A Lady By Any Other Name, is a fun, regency romance that is exciting, romantic and clean.  :)

I also run a review blog for clean romances, so feel free to check it out for other ideas!


Thanks for the suggestions.  I will consider these books.  

Okay I will add my latest to the growing list here.

DIRT is a historical novel that takes place in 1933 in the Great Dust Bowl of Oklahoma where 13 year old Sammy wakes to find he and his sister, 7 year old Birdie, are now orphans. Rather than go to the State home for orphans, he decides to pretend that their parents are still alive. The lies begin and so does the fear of being found out, along with staving off hunger, the dust storms and a menacing drifter.


This may sound depressing, but the friends he makes and how he impacts their lives makes you believe that a good heart is not hard to find if you open your own to others.


I think you would enjoy it story. An excerpt in on my website www.sldwyer.com


Available on all ebook formats and hardcopy on Amazon.com and Samshwords.com


I will check this book out, it sounds interesting.



It's inspirational, it's true, and it's an incredible romance...

The realest romance you will read this fall

"This rare and honest first-person account looks at 21st century romance, marriage with children, and divorce from a regular guy’s perspective. The colorful and addictive narrative delves deep into spousal abuse, the hopeless place in which a father finds himself during divorce, new beginnings, and his ordeal’s significance in retrospect. John Emil Augustine’s insight throughout, the result of his own tragedy and redemption, is nothing short of eloquence itself written in a very down-to-earth, casual way. This heart-jerking, wisdom-flecked story is a must read for lovers of fiction and non-fiction alike. John Emil Augustine has been a landscaper, musician, English professor, welder, forklift operator, and is the father of four boys. John writes and performs in his spare time. 'Love Seen from Hell' is his first novel."

I have downloaded a copy and will check it out.



If your group likes fantasy fiction maybe you'd care to add The Journey into the Realm Series.  Book 1 is The Elf Girl and Book 2 is The Spell Master.  Written by my daughter Markelle Grabo.  This is a series of 6 books.  Book 2 was just released.  Paperback, Hardcover and eBook.  Check out her website www.markellegrabo.com and you can read the first chapter and get a feel for the books.  Besides my book club, I know of a few others with ages ranging between 25 - 65 and they all really enjoy the stories.
