Give Away

This is a fabulous book, I loved it. Dennis Lehane is one of my favorite authors. This is part of the review I'll publish in September, The rest of his novels have been mysteries, this is not. It is historical fiction, at it's finest. Well written, well researched, The Given Day covers a turbulant time in American history, at the end of The Great War and, of course, it's set in Boston. Over 700 pages, but truly a fast read; because you can't put it down, it just flows and you are swept up, as you read it. I told a fellow bookseller, It flows like silk"

It will be published in September 23rd. I happen to have an extra copy of the Advance Readers Copy. This is a soft cover, uncorrected proof, provided by the publisher. I will be happy to ship it to you. Leave a comment, and I'll do my drawing on the 12th, using a random number generator.

I would love to be in the drawing. I am fascinated by WW I and wrote the history of my Grandfather's service in France from "forgotten" letters that my Aunt let me borrow. I later visited the field where he was wounded in battle and lost his best friend. I also loved collecting the uncorrected proofs that our bookstore would receive in advance of the sale of the book.
Hope you have a great week.
