Waiting on Wednesday

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Here's my pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection:

From bn.com:
New York Times
bestselling author Jacquelyn Mitchard captured the heart of a nation with The Deep End of the Ocean, her celebrated debut novel about mother Beth Cappadora, a child kidnapped, a family in crisis. Now, in No Time to Wave Goodbye, the unforgettable Cappadoras are in peril once again, forced to confront an unimaginable evil.

It has been twenty-two years since Beth Cappadora’s three-year-old son Ben was abducted. By some miracle, he returned nine years later, and the family began to pick up the pieces of their lives. But their peace has always been fragile: Ben returned from the deep end as another child and has never felt entirely at ease with the family he was born into. Now the Cappadora children are grown: Ben is married with a baby girl, Kerry is studying to be an opera singer, and Vincent has emerged from his troubled adolescence as a fledgling filmmaker.

The subject of Vincent’s new documentary, “No Time to Wave Goodbye,” shakes Vincent’s unsuspecting family to the core; it focuses on five families caught in the tortuous web of never knowing the fate of their abducted children. Though Beth tries to stave off the torrent of buried emotions, she is left wondering if she and her family are fated to relive the past forever.

The film earns tremendous acclaim, but just as the Cappadoras are about to celebrate the culmination of Vincent’s artistic success, what Beth fears the most occurs, and the Cappadoras are cast back into the past, revisiting the worst moment of their lives–with only hours to find the truth that can save a life. High in a ruggedCalifornia mountain range, their rescue becomes a desperate struggle for survival.

No Time to Wave Goodbye
is Jacquelyn Mitchard at her best, a spellbinding novel about family loyalty, and love pushed to the limits of endurance.

Great pick! It seems like a powerfully emotional story. Did you read the 1st book as well?

Melissa said...

I loved the 1st book, and never knew there was going to be a second. Thanks for putting this on my radar.

Lisa said...

Nice pick. While I was scrolling down your blog and came upon the book cover of No Time to Wave Goodbye, I had thought "Oh no! my computer is lagging!", when really, it's the cover art of the book. Lol, I felt ridiculous. **blush**

I think you'll need a big box of tissues to go along with this ine, it sounds heart-wrenching!

Jenny said...

Mel -- I actually didn't but I've seen the movie on Lifetime so many times that at this point I'd rather just read the sequel. (That is soooo unlike me b/c I'm usually OCD about reading all series books in order, lol!)

Melissa -- no problem! =) It comes out soon too!

Lisa -- thanks so much!!! I will post it soon!

Linda Ellen -- LOL!! That is too funny! =) It really is sort of a different looking cover. What's worse is when I first read your comment I was like "what's No Time to Wave Goodbye?" and I couldn't for the life of me remember what book that was, LOL!!!

Sumanam -- thanks!

Seolmara -- haha, yes, it does sound like that!
