Mailbox Monday: Memorial Day



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.

A short stack of wonderful books came into my house last week, harbingers of summer reading pleasure:



Life Without a Recipe: A Memoir of Food and Family by Diana Abu-Jaber. This exuberant new memoir celebrates the author's cross-cultural heritage -- raised by a German grandma and an Arab father -- and how she came to build her life as a wife, mother, and writer on her own terms, as we all must.



The Light of Paris by Eleanor Brown. This new novel by the author of The Weird Sisters is a story of Jazz Age Paris drawn in part from Brown's own family story.



The Book That Matters Most by Ann Hood, author of The Knitting Circle. Divorce after 25 years, a new book club, long-buried family tragedy, an adult daughter in trouble in Paris -- this has all the makings of the perfect summer book.



Miss Jane by Brad Watson. This new novel is inspired by the true story of the author's great aunt, a woman in rural, early 20th century Mississippi, who never married because of a birth defect, but lived a rich life nonetheless.
