The Old Man by Thomas Perry
Best book I've read this year...so far. I love Thomas Perry. I didn't know he had a new book out, and so when I was reading another blog and in a comment by Dianne from Lavender Dreams she recommended it, I had to look for it. I was thrilled that my library had it available immediately. I couldn't put it down. Happily it perfectly fits into the 'espionage thriller' category of the 2017 reading challenge, as I was really not looking forward to that category.
Now I am reading this one...
The Forgetting Time by Sharon Guskin
A four-year-old boy is having phobias and nightmares and trouble at his daycare. His mother is losing work and spending her retirement savings to try to help him, and battling her skepticism when it seems that he may be having memories of a previous life.
This one was recommended by Christina Baker Klein, author of The Orphan Train, so it will fulfill the 'a book recommended by an author you love' category of the reading challenge.
