Father's Day by Simon Van Booy came from Harper and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.
Van Booy's last novel was sparing and beautiful so I am quite looking forward to reading this one about a little girl whose only remaining relative is a disabled felon and the life they must build together.
Blue Stars by Emily Gray Tedrowe came from St. Martin's Griffin.
About two women who meet caring for their injured soldiers at Walter Reed Medical, this story of women's strength and friendship looks powerful and tough.
The Bridge Ladies by Betsy Lerner came from Harper Wave and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.
A memoir about a mother, a daughter, and a fifty year long bridge group, this book about relationship and caring sounds amazing.
