Judith from Leeswammes Blog is once again hosting a Literary Giveaway Blog Hop. I am happy to be taking part and have three books to offer for giveaway.
A Hundred Summers by Beatriz Williams (ARC) - This book made my Top Ten Beach Reads list and has been cropping up a lot of other Best of Summer lists. I think the beachy cover belies the historical fiction themes of this book.
The Alley of Love and Yellow Jasmines by Shohreh Aghdashloo (ARC) - Oscar nominee and Emmy Award–winning actress Shohreh Aghdashloo shares her remarkable personal journey—from a childhood in the Shah’s Iran to the red carpets of Hollywood—in The Alley of Love and Yellow Jasmines, a dazzling memoir of family, faith, and hope.
When revolution swept Iran in 1978, the Ayatollah Khomeini’s religious regime brought stifling restrictions on women and art. Shohreh Aghdashloo seized the moment and boldly left her husband for Europe and eventually, America, a vastly different culture.
City of Hope by Kate Kerrigan - This is the sequel to Ellis Island (which I LOVED). It continues the story of Ellie who has returned to Ireland from New York City. After tragedy, she returns to NY during the Depression and finds it very different than she left it. UPDATE: The e-book version of Ellis Island is currently on sale for $1.99 wherever e-books are sold!
