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
Just one for me this week but I'm so excited about it, a book proof of This Must Be The Place by Maggie O'Farrell. It's due to be published by Headline on 16th May.
Meet Daniel Sullivan, a man with a complicated life.
New Yorker living in the wilds of Ireland, he has children he never
sees in California, a father he loathes in Brooklyn and a wife,
Claudette, who is a reclusive ex-film star given to shooting at anyone
who ventures up their driveway.
He is also about to find out
something about a woman he lost touch with twenty years ago, and this
discovery will send him off-course, far away from wife and home. Will
his love for Claudette be enough to bring him back?
THIS MUST BE
THE PLACE crosses continents and time zones, giving voice to a diverse
and complex cast of characters. At its heart, it is an extraordinary
portrait of a marriage, the forces that hold it together and the
pressures that drive it apart.
Maggie O'Farrell's seventh novel
is a dazzling, intimate epic about who we leave behind and who we become
as we search for our place in the world.
