  1. You got some really fantastic books! I’m reviewing The Unfinished Work of Elizabeth D next month. I’ll be looking out for your thoughts too.


  2. I’ve been seeing The Homecoming of Samuel Lake around – sounds like it has some wonderful characters in it. Hope you enjoy all your new reads!


  3. Don’t Sing at the Table sounds like a book I would enjoy as my grandmother and I were very close. I will look forward to your review!


  4. Whoo-hoo, lots of loot in your mailbox this week! I didn’t realize Rosy Thornton had a new book coming out! Hope you enjoy them all…


  5. Mary, thank you so much for including THE UNFINISHED WORK OF ELIZABETH D in your lineup of books to read! It was inspired by the loss of a friend on September 11th who was on her first business trip following her maternity leave, and though it’s not about her in any way, I was motivated by thoughts and wonderings about the legacy we leave behind — and whether it’s the one we would have intended.

    I hope you enjoy it! If you’d like to see more about it the book tour this summer, my web site is

    All the best,


  6. I also got Ninepins, and am looking forward to reading it. Lots of good things in this particualr mailbox today! I hope that they are all great reads for you!


  7. I am excited to see what you think of Rosy Thornton’s new book. I already have it on my wish list!
