Breaking TWIG by Deborah Epperson
Set in rural Georgia in the 1960s, BREAKING TWIG is a coming-of-age novel about Becky (Twig) Cooper, a young woman trying to survive the physical and emotional abuse of her mother, Helen, a beautiful, calculating woman who can, with a mere look, send the meanest cur in Sugardale, Georgia running for its life.
Not even Twig's vivid imagination, keen wit, and dark sense of humor is enough to help her survive the escalating assaults of Helen and a new stepbrother, but help comes from an unexpected source--Frank, her stepfather. Sometimes, having one person who loves and believes in you is all a girl needs to keep hope alive.
Often raw and irreverent and sprinkled with all the Southern flavoring found in a good bowl of chicken and dumplings, BREAKING TWIG, is about finding love where we least expect it, destroying lives with easy lies, and realizing each of us determine our own truth.
Second Hand Heart by Catherine Ryan Hyde
Vida is only 19, but she knows a lot about dying. Her weak heart is about to give out, and her only friend, Esther, is the elderly Holocaust survivor who lives upstairs. Richard is 36 and has just lost his beloved wife in a car accident. When Richard is invited to the hospital to meet the young woman who received his wife’s donor heart, Vida takes one look at him and feels she’s loved him all her life. Richard thinks Vida is just a sheltered and confused young woman, but as Vida and Esther set out on a road trip to confront their pasts and Richard struggles to move forward without his wife, both Vida and Richard begin to wonder if there might be some truth behind the theory of cellular memory after all. Can a heart remember, at least for a time, on its own?
An unusual and surprising love story, SECOND HAND HEART is an engaging page-turner that will appeal to fans of Jodi Picoult and Nicholas Sparks, and to anyone who has ever been curious about the limits of love and death.

Ian leaves for a month-long contract overseas, and Candice plans to use the time apart to decide whether her marriage can be saved. When her ex walks back into her life as the new client at work, ten years more attractive yet saddened by his own recent loss, she's left wondering what she really wants from life and love.
