Jacket covers of the four books mentioned in this articleTwo titles expected to take off this fall are Will Schwalbe’s touching memoir about his mother, The End of Your Life Book Club,  and Attica Locke’s second mystery, The Cutting Season.  Schwalbe’s memoir of his mother's last months of life demonstrates how asking the simple question “what are you reading?” can transform a relationship while Locke’s tale of murder and injustice in Louisiana explores the enduring legacy of slavery.  Compared to The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time, there is growing word of mouth for The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by British author Rachel Joyce; in it, a retired Englishman learns that an old friend is dying and decides to walk 627 miles to see her.  M.L. Stedman’s debut novel, The Light Between Oceans, the story of a lighthouse keeper and his wife who make one devastating choice that forever changes two worlds, is being compared to Sara Gruen’s Water for Elephants and Kim Edwards’ The Memory Keeper’s Daughter.
