50 Great Books That Will Change Your Life
The Inn at Lake Devine, by Elinor Lipman
“I read this punchy romantic comedy while finding the courage to leave my job as an attorney. The story, which centers on
a Jewish girl’s fixation on an anti-Semitic hotel in Vermont, stayed in my mind and heart and filled me with the notion of
becoming a writer: I can do this, I thought while turning every page. At the very least, I have to try.”
Recommended by Emily Giffin, the author of Where We Belong ($16, amazon.com), as well as five other novels.
