Carrie Magnuson of Columbia Heights writes:

It’s only March, but I’ve already read five fantastic books this year: “The Sweetest Hallelujah,” by Elaine Hussey, Wendy Webb’s “The Tale of Halcyon Crane” and “The Fate of Mercy Alban”; “The Good Dream,” by Donna VanLiere, and “The Book Thief,” by Markus Zusak — the best book I’ve read in a long time. Each book has a plot that kept me going to the last page. Now I’m reading “I’ll Be Seeing You,” by Suzanne Hayes and Loretta Nyhan, a story set during World War II.
