The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown came from Amy Einhorn Books via LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
Three literarily named sisters come home to take care of their sick mother and are horrified to find each other. A nutty family of readers and the secrets they have hidden, this sounds like a great one, doesn't it?!
Shoes Hair Nails by PosiDeborah Batterman came from the author.
A collection of short stories centering on relationships, Batterman says the book "bridges the boundaries of literary women's fiction and chick lit" and that right there sold me on it.
Island Girl by Lynda Simmons came from Elizabeth at Berkley.
A book about family dynamics in the face of early onset Alzheimer's, this one sounds like it could be one of those books I should read when I need a cathartic cry. Regardless of when I read it, it sounds enthralling.
Mr. Chartwell by Rebecca Hunt came from The Dial Press.
I'm interested to see how Mr. Chartwell and the darkness of depression connect Winston Churchill and a young House of Commons librarian in this intriguing novel.
