Is there a good book on Catholicism I can give a Protestant?


I was wondering if there is a good book that explains Catholic belief that is basically informational, not apologetic. I want to give it to a Protestant that only wants to understand her Catholic relatives. She wants to learn in order to find common ground, not to try and correct or convert.
