Monday Mailbox

The trickle of books has resumed, not yet a raging river but one more good soaking rain and it'll be there. This past week's mailbox arrivals:

From Zero to Mastectomy by Jackie Fox came from the author.
Starting as a series of articles about the author's early stage breast cancer diagnosis and her eventual recovery, this is a book whose information I never need but it is also one that fills the gap in information left for those women who have breast cancer but who have been lucky enough to catch it at its earliest stage.

Finding Marco by Kenneth Cancellara came from Megan at Phenix & Phenix Literary Publicists.
A high powered lawyer who to goes back to Italy, the place of his childhood, to do some soul searching about the person he wants to be and life he wants to live. I think I could definitely do some great soul searching in Italy too!

Free to a Good Home by Eve Marie Mont came from Kaitlyn at Berkley.
There's a dog on the cover, how can I not want it? The fact that it's about a newly divorced woman who is taking care of her ex's mother just makes it that much more intriguing.

My Name Is Mary Sutter by Robin Oliveira was a contest win from BookingMama.
A midwife who overcame prejudice and became a doctor during the civil war? Sign me right up!

As always, if you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Marcia at The Printed Page and enjoy 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.
