In My Mailbox - 2/27/10

Credit goes to The Story Siren for creating and hosting the In My Mailbox feature. Here are my new books for this week:

For review:

The Family Greene by Ann Rinaldi

Cornelia Greene is fed up with gossip about her mother. Caty Littlefield Greene was once a beautiful young bride who lifted the troops' spirits at Valley Forge, but Cornelia knows that rumors of Caty's past indiscretions hurt Nathanael Greene, Cornelia's adored father. Yet, Caty claims that she's just a flirt, and that flirting is a female necessity--a woman's only means of power.
But Cornelia's concern with her mother's reputation fades to the background when she learns that Nathanael Greene may not even be her father. As she searches for the truth, she makes unexpected discoveries that lead her to a new understanding of love and family.

Emma's River by Alison Hart

Emma, her pony, and her mother travel up the Missouri River on a steamboat to join Papa on the frontier. When she sneaks to the main deck to check on her beloved pony, she finds Patrick, a stowaway, who's bunking with her pony, and the two make a deal that evolves into friendship. When the Sally May explodes in a fiery blaze, Louisa, Mama, Patrick, wealthy cabin passengers, poor immigrants, and one plucky pony must find a way to survive the disaster.
