I am so sorry you are in a low place. When I was in a really low place, I read alot of lay science and easy history like Bill Bryson, Simon Winchester or David McCullough. I am trying to think of soothing escape fiction. Maybe No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency or Carrying Albert Home. Or The Rosie Project.

I keep meaning to read genuine Zane Grey, and will. Ever read Ivan Doig?

Too grim for me, but I loved Sharan Newman. Now out of print.

Recently read Wrong Side of Goodby. Still thrumming from it. What was left out was as spellbinding as what was written.

You might like The Greater Journey. NonFiction, short chapters, easy and interesting.

Not read those yet, but that age range is really for adults, too. Phantom Tollbooth, Indian in the Cupboard and From the Mixed Up Files.... are for all ages.

I most recently finished RiverHorse. I read The Gone Away World months ago, and it is still thrumming in my head. Two Steps Forward is thoughtful. Only Patterson I've read was Testament.

Re Stephen White - I go beyond recommending  - he is my favorite writer.

 

His history is uncannily similar to that of Jonathan Kellerman.  Both are educated (with Phds), trained and licensed as Psychologists.  Both attended top schools (UCLA and Berkeley) - graduating in early 70s.  Both spent some years successfully practicing, before becoming mystery writers.  Both created characters that nearly exactly mimic their professional selves.

 

 

In real life – White maintained a private practice as a clinical psychologist in Boulder Colorado.  His main character – Dr Alan Gregory, is a clinical psychologist with a private practice in Boulder Colorado.  

By all means – do take a look at Stephen White’s books.  I think you will be glad you did.

I'm not familiar with Stephen White.  Do you recommend or not?

 

Just started Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel.  It's been in my bookcase for so long that I figured it was about time.  7 pages in I'm hooked.  It's a trilogy so I'll have to look into getting the others.
