I am still reading "The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane" and have posted a couple of teasers from it already so I am going to move on to one of the two newly acquired books.

This teaser is from "The Postmistress"  by Sarah Blake.  I haven't started reading it yet so I will just open the book and start there.

"No, it became clear to them that Miss Iris James's motives were best understood by looking around at the Franklin post office.  As in any of their houses, the spirit of the woman had insinuated itself firmly there." Page 51

So, there you have it.  Not much to go on and not very intriguing but the book looks to be promising.  It takes place in Franklin, Massachusetts in 1940.  It involves the townspeople of this small town during World War II, their attitudes toward the world and to themselves. 

Since I haven't started it, I can't say much more but I am looking forward to reading this one.
