Monday Mailbox

This week's mailbox arrivals:

I Shall Be Near to You by Erin Lindsay McCabe came from Crown.

Centered around a newly married young woman who disguise herself as a man and joins up to fight in the Civil War at her husband's side, this novel inspired by real women who fought as men sounds like it will be fascinating reading.

Under the Wide and Starry Sky by Nancy Horan came from Ballantine and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

A novel about Robert Louis Stevenson and his American wife Fanny? I do love reading novelizations about my favorite authors' lives and I have loved RLS since I dove head first into Treasure Island one summer when I was a child.

If you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Rose City Reader 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.


  1. ENJOY your book. I have UNDER THE WIDE AND STARRY SKY but haven't gotten around to reading it.

    I will be looking for your review.

  2. Both books sound really good! I hope you enjoy them both!

  3. I've definitely been curious about Under the Wide and Starry Sky. I Shall Be Near to You is a new one to me, but it has me a little intrigued as well. Happy reading!


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.
