In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox is where I share with you the books I've gotten in the mail, the library, et cetera. Maybe you'll find a book you want to read along the way!

The Given Day, by Dennis Lehane
(originally published in 2006)
published by HarperCollin's in 2008


Filled with a cast of unforgettable characters more richly drawn than any Lehane has ever created, The Given Day tells the story of two families—one black, one white—swept up in a maelstrom of revolutionaries and anarchists, immigrants and ward bosses, Brahmins and ordinary citizens, all engaged in a battle for survival and power. Beat cop Danny Coughlin, the son of one of the city's most beloved and powerful police captains, joins a burgeoning union movement and the hunt for violent radicals. Luther Laurence, on the run after a deadly confrontation with a crime boss in Tulsa, works for the Coughlin family and tries desperately to find his way home to his pregnant wife.
