Lucy and Gabe meet in college in September 2001. Young and idealistic their futures loom in front of them. This book is about love and the roads taken and not taken. Had it been up to Lucy she and Gabe would have been together forever, except that Gabe had things going on within him, things he felt he had to resolve from his upbringing. At first she thinks they can meld their careers but Gabe feels differently. As a photojournalist he goes to the most dangerous, war-torn areas in the world in the years after 9-11. Lucy stays in New York and pursues her dreams, but thinks and hears about Gabe as social media evolves. During the next thirteen years they lose touch, then reunite briefly even though Lucy marries and has 2 children. The words of this book are those of Lucy’s as she sorts through her memories of the love she cherished with Gabe. She questions her decisions, does a lot of what ifs and ultimately knows at the end, that she will always love him.
Nighthawk, by Clive Cussler, is a great story according to my husband, Noah Book. Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala are on their A-Game as they search for the most advanced aircraft the United States has ever designed. The X-37 vanished somewhere in the South Pacific and both Russia and China have the technology to locate the plane, but the cargo it is carrying could be catastrophic to the entire world. From the Galapagos Islands to the jungles of South America, Kurt and Joe race against time and find themselves in life threatening conditions. Check out this action packed book and be prepared to ignore all those chores you need to do!
