Whether you are off to some relaxing getaway this summer or staying home, you are going to want to be prepared with the perfect book for your escape from the ordinary. Aleteia’s writers are here to assist you with their selections for books that variously amuse, inspire, and, most importantly, will leave you feeling refreshed, as if you’ve journeyed to a new land, and returned with a new perspective on life.
