Which is better: Excitement over a debut author, or the glee that comes from learning that a treasured favorite has a new book out?
Fortunately, you don’t really have to choose which is better. (Though with the four fabulous books we’re giving away this week, it may be tough to choose which to read first.) This week, we’re giving away two debuts—The House Girl by Tara Conklin and The Drowning House by Elizabeth Black—and two novels from veteran writers—See Now Then by Jamaica Kincaid and The Tin Horse by Janice Steinberg.
The four stories take place in locales as diverse as a Virginia plantation in the 1850s; Boyle Heights, Los Angeles; the island of Galveston; and from inside a family’s home in New England. Each novel showcases strong writing, evocative descriptions and characters you won’t forget.
Want to win these books? Here’s how . . .
