Sunny but still cool. There is a yellow tulip and lots of violets in the yard, plus white blossoms on the serviceberry tree. Seems spring has finally arrived.

Only two books to feature this week....
Leaving Blythe River by Catherine Ryan Hyde, to be released May 24, 2016 by Lake Union Publishing.

New York Times bestselling author Catherine Ryan Hyde returns with an unforgettable story of courage.
Seventeen-year-old Ethan Underwood is totally unprepared to search for his father in the Blythe River National Wilderness. Not only is he small, scrawny, and skittish but he’s barely speaking to the man after a traumatic betrayal. Yet when his father vanishes from their remote cabin and rangers abandon the rescue mission, suddenly it’s up to Ethan to keep looking. Angry or not, he’s his father’s only hope.
Reader, I Married Him: Stories Inspired by Jane Eyre, edited by Tracy Chevalier
Published March 22, 2016 by William Morrow Paperbacks

This collection of original stories by today’s finest women writers—including Tracy Chevalier, Francine Prose, Elizabeth McCracken, Tessa Hadley, Audrey Niffenegger, and more—takes inspiration from a line in Charlotte Brontë’s most beloved novel, Jane Eyre.
