Monday Mailbox

This week's mailbox arrivals:

A Star for Mrs. Blake by April Smith came from Knopf and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

Five mothers who lost their sons in WWI travel to France to see the graves of their boys in what promises to be an affecting and unforgettable novel based on actual history.

Clever Girl by Tessa Hadley came from Harper and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

The tale of a woman as she moves from childhood to middle age, this one might hit close to the bone for me but I am looking forward to it all the same.

Two Sisters by Mary Hogan came from William Morrow and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

I am my sister's sister and so I have always been attracted to stories about sisters. This one about a sister who has always felt shut out of the relationship between her perfect older sister and their mother is definitely enticing.

The Visitors by Patrick O'Keeffe came from Viking.

A novel about Irish immigrants to the US who don't necessarily like each other but are connected by their pasts and their loves, this novel of stories and relationships sounds fantastic.

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