Giveaway - Red Hook Road - Ayelet Waldman

Thanks to the generous folks at Doubleday Publishing, I have two copies of Red Hook Road by Ayelet Waldman to giveaway.

From the publisher:

"Set on the coast of Maine over the course of four summers, Red Hook Road tells the story of two families, the Tetherlys and the Copakens, and of the ways in which their lives are unraveled and stitched together by misfortune, by good intentions and failure, and by love and calamity.

A marriage collapses under the strain of a daughter’s death; two bereaved siblings find comfort in one another; and an adopted young girl breathes new life into her family with her prodigious talent for the violin. As she writes with obvious affection for these unforgettable characters, Ayelet Waldman skillfully interweaves life’s finer pleasures—music and literature—with the more mundane joys of living. Within these resonant pages, a vase filled with wildflowers or a cold beer on a hot summer day serve as constant reminders that it’s often the little things that make life so precious."

Read an excerpt of Red Hook Road. You can find Ayelet on Facebook and Twitter.

Simply comment to be entered. Open to US only, no po boxes please. Ends Sunday August 15th at 6 pm EST.
