RIDE THIS DAY DOWN INTO NIGHT is a story about love, murder, deception, innocence, father/son relationships, abuse, marriage, new beginnings, but mostly it is about love. Told from the point of view of Tim Rich, a twenty-seven-year old English teacher who is married and expecting a child, he tells about a life outwardly seamless in its perfection and happiness which spirals out of control when he is obligated to home-school Olivia Buford. Olivia's father has been accused of the violent and gruesome murder of Connie Stafio a prominent, church-going denizen of the community. A coarse yet completely enchanting young woman, Olivia captivates Tim. Despite his conscious attempts to evade Olivia Buford, Tim drifts deeper and deeper into Olivia's hardened world. As Tim observes, "If Billy-the-Kid or Al Capone had lived in Califon, they would've been careful if they'd walked by a Buford." But for all Olivia's dangerous background and inescapable reputation as a 'Buford' she is a seductive, beautiful, smart and tender young woman. Her insightful views on the literature Tim Rich is obliged to teach her at her modest house and her enthralling sexual allure makes him gradually attracted to her while his wife, the closer she comes to term in her pregnancy, is more distant and silent. Tim is torn between the expectations his father has always demanded through love and devotion of him and the way he conducts his life and his attraction to Olivia. The results are shocking and will become something you'll think about long after you put the book down.Ride This Day Down Into Night

Hello!

I haven't read all the answers but I could recommend pretty much every book by James Ellroy. He has a fantastic style and a very special focus on how people behave.

The last one I've read has been "Blood's a Rover".

Enjoy!

1923: A Memoir Lies and Testaments second edition 0,99 cents

To say that Harry Smith was born under an unlucky star would be an understatement. Born in England in 1923, Smith chronicles the tragic story of his early life in this first volume of his memoirs. He presents his family’s early history—their misfortunes and their experiences of enduring betrayal, inhumane poverty, infidelity, and abandonment.

1923: A Memoir presents the story of a life lyrically described, capturing a time both before and during World War II when personal survival was dependent upon luck and guile. During this time, failure insured either a trip to the workhouse or burial in a common grave. Brutally honest, Smith’s story plummets to the depths of tragedy and flies up to the summit of mirth and wonder, portraying real people in an uncompromising, unflinching voice.

1923: A Memoir tells of a time and place when life, full of raw emotion, was never so real.

SIRIUS meint:
BENDING THE BOYNE: A novel of ancient Ireland

"...a fascinating account of what happened to the residents of the once-isolated island at the beginning of the Bronze Age. " Historical Novel Society review, November 2011.

Excellent reviews, AND Winner, Next Generation Award 2011, historical fiction.

...Thought-provoking and entertaining.
--The Irish News, June 2011

...Bending the Boyne is a masterful weaving of myth, prehistory, and modern reality that reads faultlessly.
--Nancy Lorraine, Senior Reviewer, MBR Bookwatch

Bending the Boyne: A Novel of Ancient Ireland explores the clash of cultures when bronze-using warrriors arrive in ancient Eire. A totally fresh look at ancient Ireland. Based on new theories of the origins of Celts, this fiction shows the paradigm shift.
As Yeats said, set your head on fire.

Quality paperback 350 pp, and via Kindle and Nook at [ USD$2.99 ]

In terms of inspirational kind of book, you can look up "Character Education with Chess"--it is inspiring and pointing to many other inspiring authors and books too. Enjoy.

Does genre matter? I really like George R.R. Martin's Song of Fire and Ice series.
