A Fierce Radiance by Lauren Belfer

This book has it all: love, intrigue, espionage, and a bit of history holding it all together. Taking us back to a time when a scraped knee could lead to death, Life photojournalist Claire Shipley is assigned to report on the development of penicillin, a drug that could save the war. If you like historical fiction with a strong female lead, I highly recommend this one.

State of Wonder by Ann Patchett

Ann Patchett’s new novel is so solely its own. Patchett (best-selling author of Bel Canto) has written a moral adventure story whose beauty lies in the description and well, oddity of its setting. In a narrative abound with deadly snakes, harrowing river rides, and malaria-induced nightmares; State of Wonder describes a world where breathtaking beauty stands side by side with wrenching loss. The story begins with Dr. Marina Singh, a research scientist working at a pharmaceutical company who is sent to Brazil to track down another elusive doctor who is using research with a tribe in the Amazon to create a valuable new drug. What happens upon Singh’s arrival is a tribute to Ann Patchett’s gift of storytelling. There are images in this book that you will never be able to forget; this is a complex tale of adventure, moral tug-of-wars, and incredible, distinctive beauty.

Houses DesignSource from Around the World

This compact book is filled cover-to-cover with photographs of houses that make a myriad of choice design solutions that may inspire you to create or enhance your daily environment. It happily includes layouts, architectural details, and the factors that impact the homes such as location, climate and space. My favorites are the waterside homes beginning on page 78.

The Paradox of Choice by Barry Schwartz

The abundance of options we face in all aspects of life may have significant negative consequences, including decreased satisfaction with the choices we do eventually make. Our culture may equate more choice with greater freedom, but do we really benefit from having to constantly navigate an endless sea of possibilities, just to do something as simple as buy toothpaste?
