More things making me happy this week

The citrus blossoms are blooming, filling the air with a heady perfumed scent. I’m probably allergic to them. I almost don’t care.

A real live advance copy of Thief Eyes arrived just a few hours before Monday night’s seder. Pretty pretty book!

More white irises have bloomed in our backyard, nearly a dozen now. I feel like the former owner of our house left us a gift, unknowing, when she planted them. I wonder sometimes who will inherit the mesquite tree we planted here in turn.

The April 1 Booklist reviews Thief Eyes: “Simner skillfully weaves Haley and Ari’s modern emotional struggles into the ancient saga and enlivens the story with an intriguing cast of characters from the original tale. With its urgent pace and unique setting, this offering from the author of Bones of Faerie (2009) will stay with readers.”
