Enduring Love by Ian McEwan first published in 1997
Intense and suffocating psychological thriller - so well written that right until the end you aren't sure who is sane and who isn't

A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini published 2007
Desperately sad tale of two women living in Afghanistan through the turmoil of recent history and about their power to endure and to love.  I put it off for a long time because I knew it would be hard to read at times, but I am so glad I did read it.  It's a wonderful book.
