It’s Monday again … and time for my Mailbox (brought to you by Marcia at The Printed Page)
Saffron Dreams by Shaila Abdullah arrived from the author’s publicist. Isn’t that cover gorgeous? This book has been making the rounds and getting great reviews. Set in post-9/11 America, the novel centers around Arissa who is a Muslim artist and writer. When Arissa’s husband is killed in the collapse of the World Trade Center towers, she must pick up the pieces of her life and move forward for herself and her unborn son.
