Sample Saturday is when I wade through the eleventy billion samples I have downloaded on my Kindle. I’m slowly chipping away and deciding whether it’s buy or bye.
The Woman on the Stairs by Bernhard Schlink
Why I have it: Spotted on Susan’s list. And I loved The Reader.
Summary: A missing painting. A mysterious woman. Her husband and her lover.
I’m thinking: Yes – I love an art-thriller.
Moloka’i by Alan Brennert
Why I have it: Spotted in Brona’s #6Degrees chain.
Summary: When marks appear on the skin of seven-year-old Hawaiian girl, Rachel, she is sent to the quarantined leprosy settlement on the island of Moloka’i. Here her life is supposed to end but instead she discovers it’s only the beginning.
I’m thinking: Maybe – although the style doesn’t grab me, the topic does.
What the Light Hides by Mette Jakobsen
Why I have it: No idea.
Summary: Vera and David have been passionately in love since the day they met more than twenty years ago. Their son, Ben, is at university. Or at least he was. The story begins five months after Ben’s death, an apparent suicide.
I’m thinking: Yes, even though it will make me cry.
