The Miracle Chase: Three Women, Three Miracles and a Ten Year Journey of Discovery and Friendship by Joan Luise Hill, Katie Mahon and Mary Beth Phillips: “Three friends met for coffee one morning and discovered that each has an extraordinary story to tell. Katie has been haunted by an escape from serial killer Ted Bundy. Meb’s six-month-old daughter has been shaken by a neighbor’s nanny and irreversibly blinded, but somehow survived and then thrived. And, in the event that brought them together, they all witnessed Joan’s son survive a catastrophic illness.” (November 2nd 2010)

God’s Gift to Women by Stanford Friedman: “[The book] follows Scott, an egocentric thirtysomething in crisis mode, on a long run: the 1995 New York Marathon. As the story traces his difficult, five hour trek through the streets of New York City on the coldest race day ever, it simultaneously delves into Scott’s memories of a dozen past and present girlfriends.” (November 11th 2010)

Facsimile by Erin L. Snyder: “Imagine meeting yourself. Imagine being able to experience what others see and hear when they talk to you … When Persephone Kilard signed up and strapped on the recorder, all she wanted was a social networking service that would take the actual work of socializing off of her hands. The simulation was only supposed to be her reflection, not her soul. “(October 29th 2010)
