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.
