Mailbox Monday

Welcome to Monday Mailbox, the meme started by Marcia and currently on tour around the internet. This month is being hosted MailBoxMonday at Wordpress. This past week's mailbox arrivals:

The Outcast

In 1957 Lewis Aldridge, newly released from prison, returns home to Waterford, a suburban town outside London. He is nineteen years old. A decade earlier his father's homecoming at war's end was greeted with far less apprehension by the staid, tightly knit community—thanks to Gilbert Aldridge's easy acceptance of suburban ritual and routine. Nobody is surprised that Gilbert's wife counters convention, but the entire community is shocked when, after one of their jaunts, Lewis comes back without her.
No one in Waterford wants Lewis back—except Kit, a young woman who sympathizes with his grief and burgeoning rage. But in her attempts to set them both free, Kit fails to foresee the painful and horrifying secrets that must first be forced into the open. The consequences for Lewis, his family, and the tightly knit community are devastating.

My lovely friend, Linda, sent this to me.  I think she's afraid I'll run out of things to read.  Just joking.  She passes a few books to me that she thinks I'll enjoy.

LOL.. there are times when I swear my mom gives me back more books than she had previously borrowed from me. It's like strays find their way to my place. Here's my Monday post.
