Hello Samira, perhaps you know the series by Diana Gabaldon already? Beginning with "Outsider" or "Cross Stitch" (different title in the US) - there's about 7 or 8 books now in the series (it's been awhile, sorry, I don't know offhand exactly how many), with each one about 800 - 1000 pages. What strikes me most with this series by Diana Gabaldon is her exceptional style - it is vivid, it draws you in and is seasoned with just the right amount of humor and wit. I must admit, she has got me hooked - in fact, her style has almost ruined me for other authors! Then there's Sue Monk Kidd "The Secret Life of Bees". Staying with the bees, I loved "The Keeper of the Bees" by Gene Stratton-Porter. These two are a pleasure to read, and they've got the inspiring meaning. If you're open for a really good, unusual thriller, try "The Watchers" by Dean Koontz (my favorite book by this author) - and you'll even find some meaning in it, I'm sure! That's all for now. If I think of more, I'll be back. Philly K

Hidden In Plain View Gabriel Horn considers himself a London boy. But part ownership of the Back to Front Club, a gay bar in the centre of Soho, doesn’t somehow generate the same excitement as his previous employment, an active operative for MI5. When Sir Adrian Gold, Shadow Minister for Defence, offers him the opportunity to repay the government for the shoddy way they forced him out of Thames House, he accepts. His mission: to assassinate the leading Ministers of the British Government. Trouble is, when the body count begins to rise, those closest to him begin to die. Tracked by Scotland Yard and MI5, it isn’t until the CIA become involved that he finds himself trapped in a jigsaw of murder and treachery to avoid an international scandal capable of bringing the British Government to its knees.
It's not only a doctor's medical school education, residency training, and launching into practice that's so demanding, but what may be creeping into the professional's personal life along the way.

Reviews: "Klein demonstrates a toughness and determination that will leave you cheering for her.” M. Graff “Auntie M”, Author, Hyde, NC
“A Physician’s Plight” is an intriguing read that shouldn’t be missed for readers of personal memoirs. Mary Cowper, Reviewer, The Midwest Book Review
"This book pulls no punches – nothing is sacred, nothing is left out! Anesthesiologist Katherine Klein, MD, gives us “the good, the bad, and the ugly” of her family-of-origin, her marital suffering, and her divorce, which landed her in Family Court and deprived her of participation in much of the lives of her young children." Josh Grossman, MD, FACP, Col. (ret.), U.S. Army Medical Corps

A Game of Thrones - the books of this series are the best books I ever read. I am German and read it in English, old-fashioned Englisch sometimes, but good to read. You must read it and you will wish that the story never, never ends.
I know your post is a couple of years old, but allow me to recommend The Blacksmith. I wouldn't dare do so if it hadn't gotten real good reviews from readers on Amazon.de, stating that the plot as well as the meaning itself has inspired them and brought them enjoyment. The book is first of all a dark love story, but also a good thriller, worthwhile mystery and grounded fantasy (based on true medical and psychological concepts) and has been preceded by serious research. I don't know how old you are, but allow me to only recommend it if you're over 18, since the book deals with some of the darkest drives of man. The book is available in Kindle format at: http://www.amazon.com/The-Blacksmith-ebook/dp/B00CNVSJ3O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1372425362&sr=8-1&keywords=the+blacksmith+ana+calin (This is Amazon.com, the reviews are written on Amazon.de. Let me know if you'd like me to translate them for you, I'd be glad to) Enjoy!

When they offered him one million pounds to kill the British Prime Minister he thought they were joking, they weren't. He would have been happy to do it for nothing, then again a million pounds is a lot of money.
I just finished reading The Black Kid of Windsor Castle based on a true story and left the first review for the book. A fascinating story of a boy whose father was killed by the British Army in 1868 and adopted by Queen Victoria. I also let my daughter read the story and she loved it.

I've just finished two books by Jane Gardam - OLD FILTH and THE MAN IN THE WOODEN HAT. I cannot priase them enough. The first is about an international lawyer (Filth stands for 'failed in London try Hong Kong'). Filth is a Raj orphan. He marries Betty. The first books is mainly about Filth , from his childhood until his old age. The second about his wife, Betty, and tells her story . It's gently told, but very intense and moving. Giving insight into the inner lives of a couple who only seem complacent and dull. The time span is from around the 1920s to the current decade.
