Mailbox Monday September 20
Mailbox Monday is meme created by Marcia from The Printed Page. Marcia says,"Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists." Mailbox Monday is on tour and this months hostess is none other than the fabulous Kathy of Bermudaonion's Weblog. Thank you Kathy for hosting!
I received one book this week and that is okay by me. I have enough to catch up on here. I look at slow weeks as a good time to catch up! Anyone else feel that way? It does make my heart a bit sad though when there isn't a new book waiting for me. I miss that excitement of holding a new book! I am looking forward to reading this book. I have enjoyed books by Lauraine Snelling in the past. They are usually nice, quick reads. This one sounds particularly interesting. Read the summary and see what you think.
Saturday Morning by Lauraine Snelling
Broken by life’s disappointments, four women forge a friendship that leads in unexpected directions.
Hope Benson is determined to do all she can for the broken souls who come to Casa de Jesus, a women’s shelter in the heart of San Francisco. When a difficult pregnancy forces her to relinquish control, she draws support and strength from an unlikely group of women, each struggling with her own heartbreak.
Andy Taylor, a reluctant transplant to California, was compelled to leave behind her lavender-growing business and her home of twenty-some years to support her workaholic husband’s pursuit of career success. Attorney Julia Collins is searching for her teenage granddaughter, believed to be living on the streets. And Clarice Van Dam’s life has been shattered by the disappearance of her husband, who appears to have relieved her of all earthly possessions except a fur coat and her overnight bag.
Drawn together at the weekend market held in the shelter's parking lot, the women pool their resources to fend off an unscrupulous conglomerate that threatens to replace the facility with a commercial development. As they fight to retain this haven for women in need, they find their own longings for home answered by the solace of faith and friendship.
I received this book for my honest opinion from Waterbrook Press for the Librarything Early Reviewers Group.
What great books made their way into your home?
