Book Spotlight and a Giveaway! Maine by J. Courtney Sullivan

I have sooooomany books! I have a ton of print books and probably even more e-books. The Book Spotlight feature that I typically post every Saturday is a way for me to clear my shelves and to share some of the books I have. There are a lot of different reasons that I might be letting some of my books go, maybe the biggest one is that we recently moved and I discovered how many books I really do have. This feature is a way for my to cull my collection and to give someone else the opportunity to enjoy them. 

The book I am featuring this week is one that I discovered I have in both print and as an e-book so I am giving away my print copy. Good luck and be sure to stop back next week!


Maine by J. Courtney Sullivan
Paperback, 528 pages
Published May 29th 2012 by Vintage

For the Kellehers, Maine is a place where children run in packs, showers are taken outdoors, and old Irish songs are sung around a piano. As three generations of women arrive at the family's beach house, each brings her own hopes and fears. Maggie is thirty-two and pregnant, waiting for the perfect moment to tell her imperfect boyfriend the news; Ann Marie, a Kelleher by marriage, is channeling her domestic frustration into a dollhouse obsession and an ill-advised crush; Kathleen, the black sheep, never wanted to set foot in the cottage again; and Alice, the matriarch at the center of it all, would trade every floorboard for a chance to undo the events of one night, long ago.
