MARCH  Gone with the Wind, Margaret Mitchell’s famed story of love, loss, and triumph in the Civil War south.

APRIL   Lost December by Richard Paul Evans ~ When Luke Crisp graduates from business school, his father, CEO and co-founder of Fortune 500 Crisp’s Copy Centers, is ready to share some good news: he wants to turn the family business over to his son. But Luke has other plans. Taking control of his trust fund, Luke leaves home to pursue a life of reckless indulgence. Lost December is Richard Paul Evans’s modern day holiday version of the biblical story of the prodigal son, a powerful tale of redemption, hope and the true meaning of love. 

MAY  The Lucky One  by Nicholas Spark ~ Is there really such a thing as a lucky charm? The hero of Nicholas Sparks’ new book believes he’s found one in the form of a photograph of a smiling woman he’s never met, but who he comes to believe holds the key to his destiny. The chain of events that leads to his possessing the photograph and finding the woman pictured in it, is the stuff of love stories only a master such as Sparks can write.

JUNE  My Last Days as Roy Rogers  by Pat Cunningham Devoto ~ In an Alabama town in the early 1950’s during the last polio summer before the Salk vaccine, ten-year-old Tabitha “Tab” Rutland is about to have the time of her life. Although movie theaters and pools have been closed to stem the epidemic, Tab, a tomboy with a passion for Roy Rogers, still seeks adventure with her best friend, Maudie May, “the lightest brown colored person she knows.” As they snoop into the town’s darkest secrets, Tab sets out to be a hero…and comes of age in an unforgettable confrontation with human frailty, racial injustice, and the healing power of love. 

JULY  Courageous  by Randy Alcorn ~ As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, and their partners willingly stand up to the worst the world can offer, yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle, fatherhood. They know that God desires to turn the hearts of fathers to their children, but their children begin to drift farther away from them. When tragedy hits home, these men are left wrestling with their hopes, their fears, their faith, and their fathering.
