Safe From the Sea by Peter Geye came from Unbridled Books.
Great Lakes? Check. Boat sinking? Check. No, this is not the tale of my summer last summer. It's part of the premise of this book about a father and son trying to reconnect. I can't wait!
All Over the Map by Laura Fraser came from Harmony Books.
A memoir by a travel writer which incorporates not only her travel but also her search for the life she wants to build, this follow-up to An Italian Affair looks fabulous.
Semper Cool by Barry Fixler came from Exalt Press.
A Vietnam memoir, this was offered to all participants in the War Through the Generations Challenge. And as hard as reading first person accounts of the terrors of war are, this one is billed as having humor too so that should make this very worthwhile and readable.
A Scattered Life by Karen McQuestion came from the author.
With a main character who works in a bookstore, this book about three women, their lives, and family sounds like a read with which I will definitely identify. Can't wait!
The Hundred-Foot Journey by Richard Morais came from Scribner.
A kitchen fiction, what's not appealing about the story of an Indian boy who moves to France and becomes a chef? I suspect this one will have me salivating as I read along but that's totally okay by me!
