Monday Mailbox

This past week's mailbox arrivals:

Dancing to the Flute by Manisha Jolie Amin came from Atria.

A street child in rural India whose music will transform his life, this sounds phenomenal.

Indiscretion by Charles Dubow came from William Morrow and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

A young woman attracted to a golden couple tries to infiltrate her way into their lives. Intense and a little creepy sounding, no?

The Good Daughter by Jane Porter came from Berkley.

The second of the Brennan Sisters books, this one focuses on Kit, the eponymous good daughter who has always put everyone else's needs before hers. I read the first book so I'm curious to see where Porter takes this next character.

A Teaspoon of Earth and Sea by Dina Nayeri came from Riverhead Books.

A young girl growing up in Iran is certain her disappeared mother and twin sister have gone to America without her and her father and as she continues to live her life under the new Islamic regime, she imagines the life they are leading, drawing strength from her imaginings.  Just the idea of this completely captivates me.

Where the Light Falls by Katherine Keenum came from Berkley.

A young American woman expelled from college travels to Paris where she immerses herself in art and finds love with a troubled Civil War vet only to have to choose between that love and her future in art. I can't wait to crack this one open.

The Union Street Bakery by Mary Ellen Taylor came from Berkley.

A woman living above her family's struggling bakery is bequeathed a diary that spurs her a quest into the past. Delicious sounding, isn't it?

The Truth About Love and Lightning by Susan McBride came from William Morrow and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

Secrets and family relationships, this tale of gathering storms between mother, daughter, and amnesiac man who might be the long lost grandfather is just brimming with promise.

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.
