Bohjalian, Christopher A.
I like a lot of Bohjalian's work because many of them seem to have a twist at the end. This one is no different. Couldn't sleep the night I finished it; I just couldn't stop thinking about it!

Hornby, Nick.
Too funny! In the end, a sweet love story. The movie starring John Cusak is also pretty good.

Lamb, Wally.
Lamb writes so vividly in his female character that you can hardly believe a man wrote the story.

Sebold, Alice.
Beautifully heartbreaking. Will make you think of your lost loved ones fondly and wonder about life after death. The book is WAY better than the movie, but the movie is worth seeing AFTER you've read the book.

Sittenfeld, Curtis.
Loosely based on the life of Laura Bush. Very interesting take on how we can't always help who we fall in love with and how our inner strength is so important.

Totally great list! I have read most of these and they are favorites of mine, too. I will have to read Secrets of Eden - I think we like the same kind of book!
