Just a small mailbox this week. I received one review copy of an intriguing American hist-fic.
From Penguin I received The Little Bride by Anna Solomon. I love to read historical fiction set in the United States. They are few and far between these days so when I saw this one, I jumped on it.
Here is the blurb:
When 16-year-old Minna Losk journeys from Odessa to America as a mail-order bride, she dreams of a young, wealthy husband, a handsome townhouse, and freedom from physical labor and pogroms. But her husband Max turns out to be twice her age, rigidly Orthodox, and living in a one-room sod hut in South Dakota with his two teenage sons. The country is desolate, the work treacherous. Most troubling, Minna finds herself increasingly attracted to her older stepson. As a brutal winter closes in, the family’s limits are tested, and Minna, drawing on strengths she barely knows she has, is forced to confront her despair, as well as her desire.So I can't wait to read this one. Sounds interesting.
Did you receive any books that are super exciting for you this week?
Mailbox Monday is on a monthly blog tour and for the month of August it is being held at Life in the Thumb.
