March 6 - Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life by Barbara Kingsolver
"In this lively account of a family’s locavore year on their farm in Southern Appalachia, Barbara Kingsolver and her coauthors unearth the secret lives of vegetables and the unexpected satisfactions of knowing their food producers — and sometimes their dinner — on a first-name basis." (Animal, Vegetable, Miracle official site)
April 3 - The Plague of Doves by Louise Erdich
"The unsolved murder of a farm family continues haunting the white small town of Pluto, North Dakota, generations after the vengeance exacted and the distortions of fact transformed the lives of Ojibwe living on the nearby reservation. Through the distinct and winning voices of three unforgettable narrators -- the part-Ojibwe, part-white Evelina Harp, her grandfather Mooshum, and Judge Antone Bazil Coutts -- the collective stories of two interwoven communities ultimately come together to reveal a final wrenching truth." (Amazon.com)
May 1 - Heartburn by Nora Ephron
"Seven months into her pregnancy, Rachel Samstat discovers that her husband, Mark, is in love with another woman. The fact that the other woman has 'a neck as long as an arm and a nose as long as a thumb and you should see her legs' is no consolation. Food sometimes is, though, since Rachel writes cookbooks for a living. And in between trying to win Mark back and loudly wishing him dead, Ephron's irrepressible heroine offers some of her favorite recipes. Heartburn is a sinfully delicious novel, as soul-satisfying as mashed potatoes and as airy as a perfect soufflé." (Goodreads)
