Giveaway: A FALL OF MARIGOLDS by Susan Meissner

I have gotten pitches lately for SO MANY BOOKS that look really good. As a result, I’ve been on a review copy spree. It is an embarrassment of riches at my house. Books everywhere. I don’t know how I am going to get to a tenth of these books. Sigh.

Well, at least I can write about them, even if I haven’t read them yet. Then you guys can read them! And, in some cases, I can give them away.

Here is my first giveaway for February:  A Fall of Marigolds by Susan Meissner. The synopsis from Penguin:


A beautiful scarf, passed down through the generations, connects two women who learn that the weight of the world is made bearable by the love we give away….

September 1911. On Ellis Island in New York Harbor, nurse Clara Wood cannot face returning to Manhattan, where the man she loved fell to his death in the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire. Then, while caring for a fevered immigrant whose own loss mirrors hers, she becomes intrigued by a name embroidered onto the scarf he carries…and finds herself caught in a dilemma that compels her to confront the truth about the assumptions she’s made. Will what she learns devastate her or free her?

September 2011. On Manhattan’s Upper West Side, widow Taryn Michaels has convinced herself that she is living fully, working in a charming specialty fabric store and raising her daughter alone. Then a long-lost photograph appears in a national magazine, and she is forced to relive the terrible day her husband died in the collapse of the World Trade Towers…the same day a stranger reached out and saved her. Will a chance reconnection and a century-old scarf open Taryn’s eyes to the larger forces at work in her life?

I like the construct of this book and definitely have it on my TBR list.

If you’d like to win a copy of A Fall of Marigolds, leave me a comment here. I will pick a winner a week from today, February 19th. Thank you to Penguin for providing this giveaway!
