Moonglow by Michael Chabon, November 22, 2016, Harper.
In 1989, fresh from the publication of his first novel, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, Michael Chabon traveled to his mother’s home in Oakland, California to visit his terminally ill grandfather. Tongue loosened by powerful painkillers, memory stirred by the imminence of death, Chabon’s grandfather shared recollections and told stories the younger man had never heard before, uncovering bits and pieces of a history long buried and forgotten.

I'll Take You There by Wally Lamb, November 22, 2016, Harper.
...tapestry of one Baby Boomer's life—Felix Funicello, introduced in Wishin’ and Hopin’—and the trio of unforgettable women who have changed it, in this radiant homage to the resiliency, strength, and power of women. (publisher)
I finished reading and reviewed The Woman in the Photo by Mary Hogan, a novel that moves from the present to the past and recounts the massive flooding of a town in Pennsylvania in 1889. I've also finished A Great Reckoning by Louise Penny, another five star novel.
My current read is going slowly because of other things I have to do. My reading has slowed down quite a bit. Murder in the Secret Garden by Ellery Adams. I really like a lot of things about it - the themes of medieval herbs, healing gardens and their counterparts - poisonous plants , the mystery plot, and the setting.
