50 Great Books That Will Change Your Life
Foster, by Claire Keegan
“You will never forget this novel because, from the first sentence, the story comes alive and the characters reach out for
us from the pages. A young Irish girl narrates her experience of going to live with an unfamiliar couple on a farm. It’s a
story about childhood, told with such beauty and with such respect for the growing heart of its main character that I consider
it to be one of the best books ever written. In other words, I would take a bullet for this book!”
Recommended by Simon van Booy, the author of three novels, including The Illusion of Separateness ($24, amazon.com), out this month.
To buy: from $5.50 (used), amazon.com.
