Whiter Than Snow by Sandra Dallas came from Anne at Authors on the Web.
I have enjoyed the previous books of Dallas' which I've read and this tale of children buried in an avalanche while on their way home from school and the town's handling of this terrible event sounds marvelous.
Up From the Blue by Susan Henderson came from the publisher.
A woman facing her past and the truth of her mother's crippling depression as she prepares to have her own first child, this should be a riveting read.
The Blessing of the Animals by Katrina Kittle came from the publisher.
A look at marriage and love in its many stages, this novel about a veterinarian and the animals who help her heal, this sounds like an interesting and different take on coupling and uncoupling.
The Queen of Palmyra by Minrose Gwin came from the publisher.
This one is getting raves around the internet and I'm curious to see this take on the personal level of the civil rights movement.
Sweet Dates in Basra by Jessica Jiji came from the publisher.
1940's Iraq, a beautiful young girl, and a forbidden love. How delicious could this one be?
The Lovers by Vendela Vida came from the publisher.
A recently widowed woman goes to Turkey, where she and her husband honeymooned to try and heal her grief, but she is ensnared in the lives of the people around her and the place she to which she has fled. Since my husband and I also honeymooned in Turkey, this one appeals to me not only for the story but for the tug of memory it is sure to evoke in me.
