The chords of the prologue of The Gravedigger's Daughter by Joyce Carol Oates are shrill and startling. They are followed, some 600 gripping pages later, by an epilogue of breathtaking stillness. I can't get this novel out of my mind. And I don't want to. – George Anderson, Beaumont, Texas

Life and Death in Shanghai by Nien Cheng is an extraordinary story by an extraordinary woman. She is now quite advanced in her age, still alert and independent, keen and interested in the world affairs. – Yong Sook Rogers, Oakland, Calif.

I finished Gary Chapman's Now You're Speaking My Language and am in the middle of his "The Five Love Languages," and have only good things to say. They're easy, enjoyable reading, and his wisdom seems so natural and right-on. Whether your marriage or relationship needs a major overhaul or fine-tuning, you can look forward to a fun journey to a wonderful destination; I am! – DAN ZISKIND, SARASOTA, FLa.

I've just finished Raleigh's Page by Newbery winner Alan Armstrong. The fictional hero is a preteen whose adventures are based on actual accounts of the early exploration of Roanoke Island. The fast-paced story has vivid descriptions of Elizabethan England as well as early America and its original inhabitants. Entertainment and education in one package. – Connie Dallmann, Pebble Beach, Calif.

I am reading On Agate Hill by Lee Smith. I have read every book Smith has written. As always, I am enjoying it.– Patricia Murdoch, Mahomet, Ill.
