HOME by Julie Andrews is rhe fascinating story about her early years.
I am now reading THE MAN WHO MOVED A MOUNTAIN by Richard Davids. It is an attention-holding true story about isolated mountain communities and how Robert Childress, who grew up in the area became a presbyterian minister and established schools and jobs to replace moonshining.
I also love ajoy Fielding's mysteries--always a surprise ending!

A Redbird Christmas by Fannie Flagg. I had borrowed from the library and loved, loved it. I told someone at work about it and that I was going to buy it. Guess what I found in my work mailbox? I lent it to another friend and she loved it so much. She had her husband read it and he couldn't put it down. I have it set out to read again. It is such a delightful story.

I know you are probably overwhelmed with suggestions, but here are a couple more anyway. The Day Before Midnight by Stephen Hunter (suspense), and any David Baldacci novel. Happy Reading!!!!

Well it looks like someone already recommended Boys in the Boat - that is a definite if he hasn't already read it. I don't normally go for non-fiction but it was absolutely wonderful and my husband loved it also.
