Vive been reading books from the same author, Kristin Hannah, the last two weeks and I am almost done with the last book. She has written books like Firefly Lane, Mystic Lake and my last read The things we do for love. I am a big fan of her books because I enjoy reading about Love, Marriage and the fact that the books also talk about overcoming difficulties in relationships. I am looking for a similar author.Anyone recommend any books or authors?

Wow, that's kind of tough. Have you tried looking in the genre threads? I think that might be called women's fiction or maybe even some of the romance books would fit. I'll have to ponder this one because I don't read in this area a ton, but I know I've read some.

Here are some authors that might fall into the genre:
- Jodi Picoult (agree with the previous poster--I like her stuff before The Tenth Circle though)
- Lisa Tucker (Once Upon a Day)
- Kristy Kiernan (Matters of Faith)
- Emily Giffin
- Debbie Macomber
I've only read one of Macomber's, Tucker's, Kiernan, and Giffin's though so I can't attest to their works as a whole.
- I saw that Kristin Hannah wrote a recommendation for "Saving Cee Honeycutt" by Beth Hoffman--I haven't read it but have heard good things.
Perhaps these might work too (they seem to be popular with readers but haven't read any--just ones some people I know are reading and like)
- Alice Hoffman
- Elizabeth Berg
- Deanne Gist

Hello! Some others you might want to try too would be Sherryl Woods, Nicholas Sparks, and the Debbie Macomber recommendation is a good one too! Enjoy!
