This week I received a few books in my mailbox -
For review for a blog tour - The Legacy of Eden by Nelle Davy - not quite my typical read - it is more contemporary than historical - but it sounded great so I went for it. Here is the blurb:
"For generations, Aurelia was the crowning glory of more than three thousand acres of Iowa farmland and golden cornfields. The estate was a monument to matriarch Lavinia Hathaway’s dream to elevate the family name—no matter what relative or stranger she had to destroy in the process. It was a desperation that wrought the downfall of the Hathaways—and the once-prosperous farm.
Now the last inhabitant of the decaying old home has died—alone. None of the surviving members of the Hathaway family want anything to do with the farm, the land or the memories.
Especially Meredith Pincetti. Now living in New York City, for seventeen years Lavinia’s youngest grandchild has tried to forget everything about her family and her past. But with the receipt of a pleading letter, Meredith is again thrust into conflict with the legacy that destroyed her family’s -great name.
Back at Aurelia, Meredith must confront the rise and fall of the Hathaway family…and her own part in their mottled history."To complete my Little House series I got - Across the Rolling River by Celia Wilkins. And somehow I managed to order 2! It looks like I will be taking to Ebay for my extra copy. It really stinks that most of the books are out of publication, so I have been hunting them down on various websites to try and find them at a reasonable price. I came across several listed as acceptable for over $100! Yeah, that will be the day I buy that book! However, I think I have found all those missing - we will see what shows up over the next few days.
I also received the gift as part of the Book Blogger Holiday Swap and received a few books - however I want to wait to post about these until closer to Christmas! But they were good ones!
What came in your mailbox?
Mailbox Monday is on a monthly blog tour and for the month of December it will be held at Let Them Read Books.
