Where the Heart Leads by Kim Vogel Sawyer, historical fiction set in 1904. A young Mennonite man is back home in Kansas after going to college in Boston, and he must decide if he wants to stay in Kansas as his father wants, or go back to Boston where he can find a better job with his education. Complicating matters are two young women in each place he has feelings for, both very different from each other.


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

"Miss You Most of All" by Elizabeth Bass
I just started it, so I can't really describe or recommend it yet, but here are a couple of blurbs from the back of the book.
"An exuberant celebration of life, love, family and friendship, told with a sassy Texas flair. It's a perfect balance of humor and heartache, a sweetly satisfying novel that will stay with the reader long after the final page is turned."

"Cooked" by Michael Pollan
"Weelicious" by Catherine McCord
"The Men Who Stare at Goats" by Jon Ronson

"Cooked" is really interesting... Michael Pollan is a fantastic writer & thinker of all things food. "Cooked" traces back human evolution to the beginning of cooking with fire; with the control of fire (the theory goes), humans were freed up from spending up to 6 hours a day chewing raw food, and cooking made more nutrients readily available so we were able to evolve these big old brains. With Fire, he researches true "Southern Barbeque", and grilling with wood & wood fires. Then he continues on to cooking with the other elements, water (soups, stews, braises), air (baking), & earth (fermenting, such as kimchi & beer). A fascinating read!
