Syosset Patron Picks

At Readers’ Services, we love to recommend books but we also enjoy finding out about gems that we may have overlooked.  So, a call for Patron Picks went out months ago .  Since then we’ve received over 100 reviews from patrons, but you’re not off of the hook yet-we would love for your recommendations to keep coming.  Fill out a Patron Picks form, send us an e-mail at,  leave your picks in a comment below, or stop at the Readers’ Services desk and share your favorites with us, and then we’ll in turn share them with you.

The first pick we’ll share also happens to be the first patron pick we received:

Saving CeeCee HoneyCutt by Beth Hoffman

Just finished Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman.  If you are in the mood for a book that redeems your faith in a community’s ability to mend the sorrows of a young girl’s heart after years of neglect and loss, then this is the book for you.  With a sprinkling of southern charm throughout, Hoffman creates real characters whose generosity mimics that of the very ordinary good neighbors or friends you might know.  It is a refreshing read that builds hope with every turn.  You will find yourself caring for CeeCee knowing life is truly full of daily miracles if we have the eyes to see.

If you like: The Secret Life of Bees, Garden Spells, or novels by Fannie Flagg Saving CeeCee Honeycutt may be your next favorite book.
