The Silent Places

by Stewart Edward White

Silent Places is my favorite of all Stewart Edward White books. If you enjoy the out-of-doors and the wilderness experience do not pass this up!

The Amazing Interlude

by Mary Roberts Rinehart

I am a European-American male in my late 50s, and I don't generally read books that are labelled "romance", but I came across this one in the long list of books by Mary Roberts Rinehart, of which I had already read some good stories.

This is not the kind of story that I thought I would like, but the quality of the writing and the strength of the character development captured me. And now this is my favorite Mary Roberts Rinehart book, and that's saying something because I generally like all her stories!

Give this one a chance even if you don't generally read "romance" fiction. It is much more than just a romance.

The Altar Steps

by Compton MacKenzie

I downloaded this book for something to do while on a long road trip, and I wasn're sure how good it would be. I was pleasantly surprised by the book, and it had many twists and turns, and seemed pretty full of action. Still, the auther did an excellent job of making it easy to follow. Almost definitely the best book I have ever read off this site, or anywhere for that matter. I will very briefly describe the book:

Basically, a young boy named Mark Lidderdale, the son of a Catholic priest, goes through many difficulties in his childhood, striving towards his ultimate goal, which is to be a priest like his father, who died when he was very young. This book tells of how Mark got there, and how he resisted many temptations.

A bit long of a review, but I felt I had to sum up how good this book really is!
