Default Books for fallen away or lukewarm Catholics?

I'm trying to find books to get as Christmas gifts for family members that either haven't been to mass in years or just go once in a while when they feel like it. Any suggestions?

I read a good book about Catholic women (mainly that came of age in the 60's and early '70's) who returned to the church. It is a collection of very interesting stories that evangelize by their individual witness more than preaching at the reader. One woman became a witch, one a "hippie" and one lived with some nuns who gradually became very anti-male and anti-Catholic church while remaining nuns!

I recently gave it to my aunt who basically fell away from the church after marrying a Protestant. She has never joined another church and once she asked me why I didn't invite her to join me when I left a picnic for mass. I think maybe reading the stories of women similar to herself might be a non-threatening evangelization.
