Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books
that came in their mailbox during the last week. It was created by
Marcia @ A Girl and Her Books but now has a permanent home here
This week I received a copy of A Robot In The Garden by Deborah Install from the publisher. It was published on 23rd April by Doubleday/Transworld Digital and is already getting very good reviews. I'm really looking forward to reading it.
Ben Chambers wakes up to find an unfamiliar object - rusty and lost - sitting underneath the willow tree in his garden. Refusing to throw it on the skip as his wife Amy advises, he takes it in.
Ben does not want children, or even a job, and now he has found yet another reason to stay in his study and ignore everyone.
It is only when Amy walks out that Ben realises he has alienated all the human beings in his life. He has only one friend left.
This is the story of a unique friendship, and how one man opens his heart to a past he did not want, and a future he cannot lose.
