    Jacob I Have Loved by Katherine Paterson is a good book. You'd probably enjoy it.

    You may also enjoy reading Rebecca by Daphne DuMaurier (romance, mystery), Little Women by Louisa May Alcott (some romance, mostly coming of age and slice of life), and Lost Horizon by James HIlton.

    Many of the books on your list are not "happy" stories. Hope this helps.

  • I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou

    The Summer of My German Soldier by Bette Greene (It's a fairly easy read)

    Run Silent, Run Deep by Edward Beach

    A Death in the Family by James Agee

Does your e book with regards to wellbeing careers could desire to be non-fiction? an magnificent novel some scientific expert is "reducing for Stone" via Abraham Verghese.

    Watership Down is one that I read and enjoyed. David Copperfield is great but very long.
