Empty Mansions
Empty Mansions by Bill Dedman (1990s)
Hugette Clark was the daughter of W.A. Clark, a man who acquired an immense fortune, starting with copper mining and then branching into other investments that simply added to his riches. This is a fascinating story of a woman who eventually became very reclusive, actually living in a hospital the last twenty years of her life instead of enjoying any of the fabulous mansions she owned or enjoying any of her great wealth except in the ways she could generously give it away. She lived to be 104 and died just recently (2007) in her room at Beth Israel Hospital in New York City. She was not ill but simply felt most secure there so administrators finally allowed her to stay. -- Added by mrhofferth on 02/20/2014

No Ordinary Lives
No Ordinary Lives by David Johnson (1990s)
A collection of newspaper human interest stories by an Idaho reporter whose approach is "everybody has a story." For 20 years, he has selected his weekly subjects by going through the local phone book and calling people at random. Ordinary people, but the stories are anything but. An enjoyable read. -- Added by Roundabout girl on 02/16/2014

Taft
Taft by Ann Patchett (1990s)
I am reading all of Ann Patchett's books, after reading the recently published compilation of her essays & articles, "This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage." I like Patchett's style and use of language, but would give this 2 or 3 stars out of 5. Please see more comprehensive reviews in other sources. -- Added by 0101101 on 02/15/2014

The Shining Girls
The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes (1990s)
This takes place in different eras due to the story but majority of it takes place in the 1990s. Basic premise is that a girl who is attacked and left for dead begins looking for her would be killer. You find that she was attacked by a serial killer that travels through time killing women in different eras. While it sounds unbelievable, the story works and is very good. Would recommend it to anyone who likes a good story. -- Added by brlhudso on 02/09/2014
