Try Crowe Lake by Mary Lawson. A very poignant tale of a family in Canada or what about When God was a Rabbit; funny and sad but well written . JAH

A Fathers Story by Lional Dahmer
A Father's Story

Review taken from a customer
Heart rending. 16 Oct 2003
By elle
Even if you're not interested in the dahmer case, this book is moving. Following through from childhood, it chronicles everything you never knew about Dahmer, but from a different angle. Most interesting is the way the author blames himself for his sons problems although, as we can see, society was as much to blame for the breakdown of morals.

I would recommend this book to any parent or child as well as anyone interested in the case. It is guaranteed to not only pull your heartstrings, but to act as a warning to us all. A fascinating read.

"A Tyke in Tupland" is a book about a young Yorkshire boy evacuated to a remote village in Derbyshire called Eyam (Hence the Title). I came across this book while staying at a furnished cottage in the Derbyshire Dales for the week end, and did'nt discover it on the book shelf until the evening before I returned home. After reading the first few chapters it was impossible to put down. The night was spent laughing giggling and in some places weeping. It was by far the most entertaining book I have ever read and the only one I have read in one sitting. At six in the morning I had finished it and since then have searched for it so I may have my own copy, but sadly it is out of print...however I find it is available on Amazon Kindle..I can definitely recommend it .Norma Rita Grayson.

I am impressed at 23 you have such taste. I usually read biography or the old classics. But two great book you might want to look up are 'In my dreams I dance' by Anne Wafula Strike and 'This breathing world' by Jose Luis de Juan. Both are books I really enjoyed and recommend.

or try an autobiography of a wife who went through the war?

Hi, The Binary Year, by Anna Maslin, is semi-autobiographical, funny but dealing with issues many woman find of interest. The tag line is:On 01:01:11 Anna woke up to the New Year. She was 50, worked on global health issues, had four children, one husband and one dog, On 01:01:12 Anna woke up to the New Year. She was 51, everything had changed including the dog. The Binary Year I hope that helps.

The Kommandant's Girl by Author Pam Jenoff there are also some follow up books as well. Once you get into the book its very interesting, but the first chapter was not very good in my opinion, but i am an impatient reader I like to get straight into the story. hope that helps

Try the Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear. The first book is set immediately after the First World War, with Maisie just setting out on her career as a private investigator, and the series follows her career through the '20s and '30s. Very good writing, enjoyable detective stories, and great at creating a sense of time and place. Link to the first book in the series here. Maisie Dobbs (Maisie Dobbs Mystery 1)

Has anyone who's posted recently (with rare exceptions) taken the trouble to read the OP? It specifies the sort of book the poster enjoys reading. It didn't mention that the post was there to serve as excuse for eejits to advertise books they'd written or for lovers of books irrelevant to that sort to gush about derivative best-sellers or--though I thought Lionel Dahmer's book worth reading--about books about serial killers.

Not that I'm sure, given amazon's re-vamp of forum listings, OP has been able to find her way back to this thread . . .

Hi, I just read a good one. It's not quite what your in to but it is about a soldier who goes through the wringer. Book covers life style, training and war fare. I found I could not put it down mid chapter.
It is called " OMG " My story my way, by Clive Andrews (new author)

What about the Fountainhead by Ayn Rand?

You might like to try Cherry Blossom Children - One Fosterer Parents Story. Excellent reviews. True Life story that starts in the fifties and moves on to how the author made and kept a promise. Check it out. Makes you stop and think!! Parenting can be tough but the joys are phenominal and this book shows and shares this. One emotional rollercoaster worth taking a chance with. Both a paperback and an Ebook.

Cherry Blossom Children - One Foster Parents Story. Well worth the read, a true story that shares the grit and determination to accommodate sibling groups within their family. Reviews are excellent. This will take you through a whole range of emotions and leave you questioning your own childhood or that of children you know.
