A Thousand Veils, by D.J. Murphy. This book arrived direct to me from the author who contacted me via Library Thing. A well-respected book blogging friend, Amy at The Sleepy Reader, reviewed this book recently and really liked it…so when Mr. Murphy asked me if I’d like a copy, I agreed right away. I’m looking forward to reading it.
Jenford, by Hendrik E. Sadi. Another book sent to me directly from the author, Jenford is set in 1970s New England and then “looks back” to the end of the Civil War. This one just appealed to me…perhaps because I was born and raised in New England and have an interest in the Civil War.
The Believers, by Zoe Heller. I am a member at the Barnes and Noble First Look Bookclub, and this one came through them. I’ve not read anything by this author, but she has gotten some great reviews on her previous titles: What Was She Thinking? AND Everything You Know. I’m looking forward to reading and discussing this one later this month.
The Islands of Divine Music, by John Addiego. Thanks to Caitlin at Unbridled Books, this gorgeous hard cover edition arrived in my mailbox on Friday. This book is a multi-generational family saga which Wally Lamb says: ‘achieves a deft and graceful balancing act” and “manages to be both succinct and expansive, both grounded and otherwordly.” Sounds great, doesn’t it?
