Created by Marcia at The Printed Page, Mailbox Monday, now has its own blog. Hosting duties are rotated every month. March is being hosted by Anna at Diary of an Eccentric. Be sure to stop by and discover a new and wondrous (for me anyway) addition to your blog roll and take a look at everyone's Mailbox lists.
Only one book this week, but it was a definite winner ...Doesn't this one just look like so much fun? Southern Fiction is one of my favorite genres, so I was thrilled when the mailman brought this ARC by Lynda Rutledge from Amy Einhorn Books/Putnam. It hopped right into the "sooner rather than later" queue.
Here's the blurb:
So what was in your mailbox this week?On the last day of the millennium, sassy Faith Bass Darling decides to have a garage sale. Why is the richest lady in Bass, Texas, a recluse for twenty years, suddenly selling off her worldly possessions?As the townspeople grab up the heirlooms, and the antiques reveal their own secret stories,a cast of characters appears to witness the sale or try to stop it. Before the day is over, they’ll all examine their roles in the Bass family saga, as well as some of life’s most imponderable questions: Do our possessions possess us? What are we without our memories? Is there life after death or second chances here on earth? And is Faith really selling that Tiffany lamp for $1?
