Monday Mailbox

This past week's mailbox arrivals:

Leaving Haven by Kathleen McCleary came from William Morrow and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

I do enjoy stories of women's friendship, the bonds they forge, and the way they weather the good and the bad so this story of two friends, one of whom donates an egg to the other, should fill that niche nicely.

The Wedding Gift by Marlen Suyapa Bodden came from St. Martin's Press and Wunderkind PR.

A young slave, daughter of the master, is given to his white daughter as a wedding gift but neither of these young women are who appearances suggest. Intriguing, no?

The Partner Track by Helen Wan came from St. Martin's Press and Wunderkind PR.

Once upon a time, I read a lot of literature about first and second generation immigrants, especially immigrants from Asia, so this novel about a young Chinese-American lawyer who is striving for her version of the American dream in the face of behind the scenes racism and sexism is right up my alley.

The Storycatcher by Ann Hite came from Gallery Books.

Southern, gothic, haints. What's not to bring a shiver to your spine?

The Fountain of St. James Court by Sena Jeter Naslund came from William Morrow and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

Jeter Naslund's Ahab's Wife was a tour de force so I am looking forward to this novel about a writer and a painter and what drives/drove their creative lives.

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


  1. I hope we both like The Storycatcher! The Partner Track is one I'd love to read!

  2. I'm excited about The Storycatcher! I loved Hite's Ghost on Black Mountain, one of my favorites.

  3. These are all new to me, but look great. Leaving Haven is calling to me.


  4. I saw The Wedding Gift at the BEA, but didn't pick it up. I bet it is good.

    The Storycatcher looks good.

    ENJOY your week and your books.

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.
