Like Fantasy? Here are two terrific ones to choose from:
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon--- One minute you are strolling through the Scottish highlands in 1945, just happy to be back from WWII and finally reunited with your husband after even years....you touch a innocent looking rock and whoosh! You are in Scotland and it's 1743! War is raging, the clans are raiding the borders and you meet the love of your life, it's just he's two hundred years older then you. Meet Claire Randall who has to reconcile what has happened to her and quickly. She is accused of being a witch and it seems her husband she left in the future--his ancestor just happens to be the mortal enemy of her soon to be new husband! On top of all that, how the heck does she get back to the future? Thank goodness she is a nurse and will do whatever she has to to survive old time Scotland. Confusing, yes. Fun, absolutely. Great historical novel with some love story.
The title caught my eye with this one, In the Electric Mist with the Confederate Dead by James Lee Burke.
Key to Rebecca by Ken Follett
These are some "old" friends that I would definitely revisit with pleasure. What are some of your "old" friends?
