I didn't buy any books this week but I did receive 6 for review

It is 1962, and Agnes Hayden Bashford, Haddie, a brainy Southern teen from a tradition-bound family, dreams of breaking free from suffocating expectations placed on girls and from Wicomico Corners. She vows to escape to the exhilarating world beyond its narrow borders, like her handsome, older friend Gideon Albright who is going to Vietnam. A series of shocking incidents brings the outside world crashing down on her peaceful village, exposing long-buried family secrets and setting Haddie on a collision course with an unstable firebrand who will have to silence her to protect his identity. Haddie witnesses the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white down-on-his-luck farmer trying to protect his retarded son. The resulting murder trial attracts outside agitators and political aspirants, and pits townspeople against each other. Excited about being a witness in the trial, Haddie sees her moment of notoriety dissolve into frustration and discomfort and tragedy claim the people around her. The racially-charged case exposes civic fault lines and secrets within Haddie's own family, shattering her comfortable home life, and unleashes an arsonist who terrorizes the community by night. In Deed So, a young girl and an entire town lose their innocence in the last year of innocence, the year before the Kennedy assassination, the civil rights struggle, feminist activism and the Vietnam War changed America forever. Release Date: Nov. 18th, 2010



For anyone who has ever loved and lost a dog.

"Once In A Lifetime Dog, My Borisangel", is the true, heartwarming story of Chantelle Hildreth’s journey into adulthood with her dog, Boris, a massive, elegant white beast with more personality, grace and charm than most people you’ll ever meet.

He was her companion and best friend, at her side every step of the way. Boris was Chantelle’s study partner through the rigors of law school, her backbone in her first teaching position and the inspiration for the purchase of her first home. He was the first child of her marriage and an infallible source of comfort and strength through the trials of her pregnancy.

In this touching and humorous story about the deep connection between an extraordinary dog and his owner, Chantelle battles rats, adopts a fashion statement that incorporates dog hair and bases her life’s decision making in devotion to her special dog.

"Once In A Lifetime Dog, My Borisangel" is a true story of unconditional love, the heartache of loss and the astonishing and uncanny ability of the special animals in our lives to teach some of the most profound life lessons.

It is a love story. A story of how much a dog loved his owner and just how much she loved him, a love that changed her forever. Boris stood by the one he loved, so in the end, when he left her, she could stand-alone. Release Date: Nov.26th, 2010
