Mailbox Monday - July 11



Mailbox Monday is a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued. Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. It now has a permanent home at the Mailbox Monday blog.

Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles, and humongous wish lists.

This will be my last Mailbox Monday at The Busy Mom's Daily. After this, I will be posting only at Busy REALTOR® Mom. I think this blog will go offline on July 18.

Right now we are enjoying our second week on the Outer Banks. Took some photos while we were on the waterfront in Manteo this weekend.


Right before we left for vacation, Charlotte Hubbard gifted me a copy of her latest book.



Housed in a rustic red barn, the Simple Gifts crafts shop celebrates the talents of the Amish of Willow Ridge--and the faith that inspires them. For the acceptance of simplicity opens the path to love.

As far as Edith Riehl is concerned, the baby twins thrust suddenly into her arms are a heaven-sent gift. Unable to conceive, she longs to be a mother with a home of her own. She's going to abide by her promise to handsome Asa Detweiler to take care of them while he looks for their real father. And even if her domineering dat Cornelius refuses to countenance Asa's suit, she can only pray the bachelor's honesty and persistence will uncover the truth--even as he's kindled an impossible hope for a love of her own . . .

Asa can't understand why anyone would think he would be so dishonorable as to father babies and then abandon them. He's determined to clear his name--but Edith's caring ways also inspire him to help heal her wounded spirit and earn her trust. In the face of heartbreaking deception, he and Edith must find the strength to understand, forgive . . . and claim their own hearts' joy.

That's it for my mailbox. Though it has been tough, I've managed not to buy any new books while vacationing. That might change when we visit Duck tomorrow. They have at least two bookstores where we will be.

Let me know what was in your mailbox too. Hope you enjoy your week!

I hope you're enjoying your vacation. I love the beaches in North Carolina though I've never been to the Outer Banks.

Thanks for visiting, everyone. We've been going down to the Outer Banks for over 20 years now, so it's like a home away from home. I'm hoping to retire down there one day.
