Charles Martin is the book I read this week instead of sewing, sleeping, and gardening. Charlie Finn is living an easy life in Bimini when everything changes. He is catapulted into a situation where he wants to help his good friend's son, but it isn't easy. Along the way, Charlie ends up in Nicaragua where things from his past show up in the lives of people he has begun to care for. This story of love and redemption is worth reading if you can put up with a somewhat lengthy introduction. There are plenty of themes in this book worth discussing with a friend or a group. Like many of his other books, it would likely make a good movie as well.
