Monday Mailbox

A week or two without books makes the week that then comes around with books in the mailbox just that much more exciting. This past week's mailbox arrivals:

The Secret of the Nightingale Palace by Dana Sachs came from William Morrow and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

An estranged grandmother and granddaughter go on a road trip together to return some Japanese artwork to the grandmother's long-lost friend and tackle some of their painful history with each other as they travel. Sounds wonderful!

Jujitsu Rabbi and the Godless Blonde by Rebecca Dana came from Amy Einhorn Press and LibraryThing Early Reviewers.

An atheist fashion reporter and an Orthodox rabbi living together as roommates? Truth is stranger than fiction and this looks terrific.

News From Heaven by Jennifer Haigh came from Harperand TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

Having previously read and enjoyed Haigh's works, including Baker Towers, the setting for this novel of interconnected stories, I am looking forward to this one.

The Sunshine When She's Gone by Thea Goodman came from Henry Holt and LibraryThing Early Reviewers.

It's been a lot of years since my kids had me sleep-deprived but this tale of a couple trying to adjust to a baby, where the husband takes the baby off to the Caribbean on the spur of the moment and without asking his wife about it sounds very interesting.

As always, if you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Lori's Reading Corner 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 have had to disable the anonymous comment option to cut down on the spam and I apologize to those of you for whom this makes commenting a chore. I hope you'll still opt to leave me your thoughts. I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
