Mailbox Monday

15 Aug
Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs.  Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists. Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of A Girl and Her Books and is being hosted by Staci of Life in the Thumb this month.
******************************************************
Here are the books I got last week:
From Pump Up Your Book:
Edge of Grace — An early morning call shatters Caryn Becker’s world. Unable to cope with her brother’s news that he is gay, Caryn rejects him and disappears into her own turbulent life as a young widow and single mom. But when David is attacked and nearly killed, Caryn is forced to make hard choices about family, faith, and her own future; choices that take her to the very edge of grace.
*************************
From Library Thing:
Mercy Come Morning

Leaving her mother in the nursing home Alzheimer’s unit, Krista Mueller drives away, intending never again to see the woman who wounded her so deeply. Ten years later the facility’s director calls, telling her he has something of her mother’s she must see. Should she—or can—she go back? (Previously titled Christmas Every Morning.)
**************************
From Amazon For Kindle:
Possession –-Police detective Vance Graegan quits the force in an attempt to save his marriage. During his family’s cross-country relocation, the movers hold his belongings for ransom. He’s determined not to let this stunt ruin his family’s new beginning, but soon everything begins to unravel in the hands of Vance’s past. Will a little boy’s innocent faith bring the hope they desperately need?

    New books at my house are all ebooks for my Kindle and include Gritli’s Children and Cornelli by Johanna Spyri, author of many profoundly Christian children’s books including Heidi, which I downloaded for free from Manybooks.net, Mind over Mind by Catholic author Karina Fabian, and a Catholic vampire novel, On the Soul of a Vampire by Krisi Keley (which is intended for inspiration for my own vampire-related web novel).

    I also downloaded 2 Astounding Stories volumes from 1930, also from Manybooks.net. This was a science fiction story magazine which was very influential, and, hey, it’s free.

    I’m reading a lot of free ebooks lately since I don’t have the money for buying real books right now.
