Monday Mailbox

As I get ready to leave for vacation, I make piles of books to take with me. And then more good stuff arrives in my mailbox and I have to add more to the teetering stacks because heaven knows I can't leave them behind! My poor car is going to be groaning on the journey. :-) This past week's mailbox arrivals:

The Cleaner of Chartres by Salley Vickers came from Viking.

I thoroughly enjoyed Miss Garnet's Angel and Instances of the Number Three by Vickers so I feel a great sense of anticipation for this novel about a woman who appears seemingly out of nowhere and ends up cleaning the cathedral.

Let Him Go by Larry Watson came from Milkweed Editions.

Larry Watson is a masterful writer and I can't wait to crack open this novel about grandparents traveling to try and convince their son's widow to bring their grandson back to them despite her new in-laws' claiming of the boy.

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

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.
