It is difficult for her to get to the library to browse, so she calls and asks us to find a handful of books at a time. She likes books that involve relationships, especially family, and where not too much happens. We've found that even the mildest of narratives often contain some sort of divorce, addiction, death, or negative situation, so it can be a challenge to find a winner. She has really enjoyed Elizabeth Berg novels and Jenny Colgan's "The Little Beach Street Bakery."  Any other leads would be much appreciated!
