Monday Mailbox

A several completely delicious looking books arrived on my doorstep this week and I am looking forward to diving into them as soon as possible. This past week's mailbox arrivals:

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.

As always, if you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Cindy's Love of Books as she is hosting this month's Mailbox Monday and have fun seeing how we are all doing our part to keep the USPS and delivery services viable.

I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
