Monday Mailbox

This past week's mailbox arrivals:

Bitter Greens by Kate Forsyth came from Thomas Dunne Books.

The fictionalized story of the woman who penned Rapunzel and the origin of the tale, this looks incredible.

Eight Hundred Grapes by Laura Dave came from Simon and Schuster as a contest win.

About a woman who returns home to the family vineyard after discovering her fiancé has been keeping secrets only to find that everyone else has too, this sounds delicious.

Letters to the Lost by Iona Grey came from Thomas Dunne Books.

A woman fleeing from an abusive boyfriend stumbles onto an amazing love story told through letters from the past. I can't wait to crack this open!

The Door by Magda Szabo came from NYRB Classics.

The interdependent relationship between a woman and her housekeeper form the core of this translated novel. That it is being called intense and controlled and frightening has me very curious indeed.
