    If you haven’t read The Waiting by LaGrow, it is super good. My favorite book last year!

  2. This is a great list! I need to find more time to read in 2016 and a few of these sound like they should be at the top of my list. It’s an older book, but have you read Won by Love by Norma McCorvey? It’s an autobiography. Peace, Linda
