Mailbox Monday: When Patty Went Away


Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday!  MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event.  Mailbox Monday has now returned to its permanent home where you can link to your MM post.

Only one book came into my home last week, but it's a good one!



When Patty Went Away by Jeannie Burt.

This debut novel is set in eastern Oregon farm country in 1976, when times are tough and get worse when a local girl goes missing.  The book is generating a lot of praise and Burt has been described as a modern, darker version of Willa Cather.

The story sounds great and the setting evokes memories of my own childhood in a little Nebraska farm town. I can't wait to read this one.

I got my copy through the LibraryThing Early Reviewer program.

A darker Willa Cather could be quite dark indeed!

Hope it turns out to be good.
