Reader recommendation: Fortunate Son

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

Fortunate Son: A Novel of the Greatest Trial in Irish History by David Marlett sets a wonderful historical novel against beautiful descriptions of Ireland in telling the story of a disputed earldom. "Fortunate Son" offers rich history, well developed characters, and a unique conclusion. I'm looking forward to Mr. Marlett's next novel.
