Hello everyone! Hope you are having a half-way decent Monday, not too bad at my end. I love coming home from work and getting to join in on blogging!
This week only brought in a few items in my mailbox. They actually both came today, so the mailbox was kinda lonely! So on with the show.
1. The House at Riverton ~Kate Morton (ordered from UK Book Depository)
2. The Forgotten Garden ~Kate Morton (ordered from UK Book Depository)
I saw The House at Riverton at the local bookstore about 2 weeks ago and it sounded so exciting. I passed on spending an undue amount of money there and ordered it from the Book Depository as soon as I got home. Gotta love free shipping worldwide!
The House at Riverton
This debut page-turner from Australian Morton recounts the crumbling of a prominent British family as seen through the eyes of one of its servants. At 14, Grace Reeves leaves home to work for her mother's former employers at Riverton House. She is the same age as Hannah, the headstrong middle child who visits her uncle, Lord Ashbury, at Riverton House with her siblings Emmeline and David. Fascinated, Grace observes their comings and goings and, as an invisible maid, is privy to the secrets she will spend a lifetime pretending to forget. But when a filmmaker working on a movie about the family contacts a 98-year-old Grace to fact-check particulars, the memories come swirling back.
Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.
