The Right-Hand Shore by Christopher Tilghman came from Farrar, Straus and Giroux.
A dying old woman tells the story of the land to the young man whom she intends to leave the family estate. I love multigenerational tales and this one seems to have a very inventive way of telling that tale.
The Time In Between by Maria Duenas came from Atria Books.
A WWII story about a young women who uses her skills as a dressmaker to become an Allied spy, this sounds fantastic.
Equal of the Shore by Anita Amirrezvani came from Scribner.
Centered on a sixteenth century Iranian woman who is a party to the politics and manuevering of her nation after her father, the Shah's death, I can't wait to get to this one.
The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman came from Scribner.
Based on the historical event where two Jewish women and five children survived a roman siege on Mount Masada, Hoffman's work is always gripping and this one promises to be as well.
