This week's free book is Anna Quindlen's Blessings

A little about the book 
Late one night, a teenage couple drives up to the big white clapboard home on the Blessing estate and leaves a box. In that instant, the lives of those who live and work there are changed forever. Skip Cuddy, the caretaker, finds a baby girl asleep in that box and decides he wants to keep the child . . . while Lydia Blessing, the matriarch of the estate, for her own reasons, agrees to help him. Blessings explores how the secrets of the past affect decisions and lives in the present; what makes a person or a life legitimate or illegitimate and who decides; and the unique resources people find in themselves and in a community. This is a powerful novel of love, redemption, and personal change by the Pulitzer Prize–winning writer about whom The Washington Post Book Worldsaid, “Quindlen knows that all the things we ever will be can be found in some forgotten fragment of family.”

This is a really sweet story. I really liked it! Just as a reminder this book has been read but is in good shape and has plenty of reading left in it.

The winner will be picked next Friday, May 27th

I like the sounds of this... probably mostly because I have a daughter named Lydia! What can I say, I'm a sucker for reading about same named people?! :)
