 Suggested next books

"Ecology of a Cracker Childhood", by Janisse Ray
  "Janisse Ray grew up in a junk yard along Highway 1, hidden from FL-bound travelers by the hedge at the edge of the road and by hulks of old cars, stacks of blown out tires, and primeval jumbles of rusted metals.  The book tells how a childhood spent in rural isolation-living in the country, but not even knowing how to swim,  grew into a passion to save the almost vanished longleaf pine ecosystem that existed before the region was ever called South.  In language colloquial, elegiac, and informative, Ray redeems two Souths.  She shows the world perceived from a junkyard by a child reared in a fundamentalist religion and relatives as colorful as any character from fiction.  She also catalogs the Edenic beauty of longleaf pine forests, where orchids  grow amid wiregrass at the feet of widely spaced trees.  Today, both worlds exist in fragments, cherished and threatened." 
Leaving Time (the elephant one) by Jodi Picoult
For more than a decade, Jenna Metcalf has never stopped thinking about her mother, Alice, who mysteriously disappeared in the wake of a tragic accident. Refusing to believe she was abandoned, Jenna searches for her mother regularly online and pores over the pages of Alice’s old journals. A scientist who studied grief among elephants, Alice wrote mostly of her research among the animals she loved, yet Jenna hopes the entries will provide a clue to her mother’s whereabouts.

Desperate to find the truth, Jenna enlists two unlikely allies in her quest: Serenity Jones, a psychic who rose to fame finding missing persons, only to later doubt her gifts, and Virgil Stanhope, the jaded private detective who’d originally investigated Alice’s case along with the strange, possibly linked death of one of her colleagues. As the three work together to uncover what happened to Alice, they realize that in asking hard questions, they’ll have to face even harder answers.

The Book of Two Ways - Jodi Picoult 
 Everything changes in a single moment for Dawn Edelstein. She’s on a plane when the flight attendant makes an announcement: Prepare for a crash landing. She braces herself as thoughts flash through her mind. The shocking thing is, the thoughts are not of her husband but of a man she last saw fifteen years ago: Wyatt Armstrong.

As the story unfolds, Dawn’s two possible futures unspool side by side, as do the secrets and doubts long buried with them. Dawn must confront the questions she’s never truly asked: What does a life well lived look like? When we leave this earth, what do we leave behind? Do we make choices . . . or do our choices make us? And who would you be if you hadn’t turned out to be the person you are right now?  
Accidental President – Harry S. Truman and the Four Months that Changed the World by A.J. Baime
Harry Truman came into the presidency with an extremely humble attitude and his wife dreaded the thought of this taking place. So much happened during the following four years and President Truman was up to the challenge and the American public viewed him as one just like they were. It was his wife Bess who first used the term "accidental president" stating he could no longer be thought this way because he was later elected on his own merit. Pilot Paul Tibbets used the name Enola Gay after his mother for the plane that dropped the bomb on Hiroshima. Such tidbits of information and others are found throughout the book. This book isn't a full length biography of President Truman's life.  You need not be a scholar by any means to enjoy this book.
