Mailbox Monday- February 8

Mailbox Monday
is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.
We share what books that we found in our mailboxes last week.



I received two great books in my mailbox:


Burn- Ted Dekker and Erin Healy
Synopsis: Years ago, the Gypsy Kumpania where Janeal Mikkado lived was attacked by outsiders. With her best friend about to be consumed by a fire, Janeal had two options: try to save her friend--at serious risk to her own life--or disappear with the million dollars that she had just discovered . . . But the past is quickly coming back to haunt her. Both the best friend and the boyfriend that she was sure were dead have reappeared in her life, as has someone who knows about the money. There's a debt to be paid for the money she found, but there's an even greater debt she must face--and if the chaff isn't burned from her own heart, it will consume her

An Irish Country Girl- Patrick Taylor
Synopsis:
Some forty-odd years before and many miles to the south, the girl who would someday be Kinky Kincaid was Maureen O’Hanlon, a farmer’s daughter growing up in the emerald hills and glens of County Cork. A precocious girl on the cusp of womanhood, Maureen has a head full of dreams, a heart open to romance, and something more: a gift for seeing beyond the ordinary into the mystic realm of fairies, spirits, and even the dreaded Banshee, whose terrifying wail she first hears on a snowy night in 1922....As she grows into a young woman, Maureen finds herself torn between love and her fondest aspirations, for the future is a mystery even for one blessed with the sight. Encountering both joy and sorrow, Maureen at last finds herself on the road to Ballybucklebo---and the strong and compassionate woman she was always destined to become.

  15. I want to read the Irish Country series too. I put Country Girl on hold at the library but I'm way down on the list. I sure hope it's as good as it sounds.

  18. Have you read a lot of Ted Dekker? I keep thinking I should read something of his, but don't have a clue where to start. (Well, aside from the non-fiction one you just review a couple weeks ago, which sounds so awesome.) Any suggestions for his fiction though? I know he deals with spirituality and faith in his writing, but they're not overtly religious, right?

  20. I go Irish Country Girl last week and can't wait to read it. I love reading books based in Ireland. I've not read Ted Dekker but have his newest "The Bride Collector" to read.
