Recommend a Tear-Jerker
A couple of books come to mind right away. One is Nicholas Sparks' Three Weeks with My Brother. While this is not in my usually genre of books I read, someone handed it to me so I read it. This is a non-fictional book about the author and a three week trip he took with his brother. The book goes back and forth between his childhood and adult life.
There were tears; half the time because I was crying and the other half because I was laughing so hard. I don't usually make audible sounds when reading, but in this case I did. I know my family thought I was nuts when they would walk through the room where I was laughing.
The next is actually a series of books. These had belonged to my mom, but I inherited them when she passed away. This is the Zion Covenant series by Bodie Thoene. I think I like these books so much because there is a lot of history in them. What makes me cry is what many people had to go through during WWII. It wasn't just Jews that were discriminated against. If you were a German and were imperfect in any way, measures were taken - that's all I'll say. I had to put one of the books down after reading one description that was so sad.
If these are books you haven't read I hope you will put them on your list. If you want to purchase them I have put some links below for your convenience.
