The Sweet By and By by Todd Johnson came from the publisher for a book tour through TLC Book Tours.
A group of five Southern women connected through a nursing home, this cross-generational tale of friendship and aging sounds lovely.
The Girl Who Fell From the Sky by Heidi Durrow came from my favorites at Algonquin Books.
After a terrible tragedy, a biracial little girl who has been raised to think of herself as white goes to live with her African-American grandmother and is now expected to think of herself as black. I expect this is one that will make me think, even long after the final page is turned.
The Weight of Heaven by Thrity Umrigar came from the publisher for a book tour through TLC Book Tours.
A midwestern couple who has lost their young son moves to a village in India. I have read Umrigar's work before and was very impressed so I am looking forward to this tale of different cultures and the hearts of people.
