Mailbox Monday April 4, 2011





In April, Mailbox Monday is being hosted by Amy of Passages to the Past.



Last week I received Mothers and Daughters by Rae Meadows. The back cover of the book reads:

When a box of Iris's belongings arrives on Sam's doorstep, she discovers things about her mother she never knew - or could even guess. But she is puzzled by much of what she finds. She learns that Violet, the woman she knows as her grandmother, left New York City as an eleven-year-old girl and found a better life in the Midwest. But what was the real reason behind Violet's journey? And how could she have come that far on her own at such a tender age?

Mothers and Daughters is a luminous novel about three generations of women, the love they share, the dreams they refuse to surrender, and the secrets they hold.

I've already read the first few pages and it has me very interested! Happy spring reading everyone!

I like family sagas and three generations of women must be interesting reading.

I love your photo with the reader and the daffodils! I can't wait to do that myself but no flowers here yet.

I saw that book last week and it sounds so good. Beautiful cover too!

This one sounds good and I like the cover too! (I hope it has some relevance to the story, though.)

Ohhh - I'm so curious about this book. It sounds great, and I wonder what the secret is.
