Waiting on Wednesday

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

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

(can't believe I forgot to use this one until now)....

From bn.com:
From the author of the smash-hit bestseller Firefly Lane and True Colors comes a powerful, heartbreaking novel that illuminates the intricate mother-daughter bond and explores the enduring links between the present and the past.

Meredith and Nina Whitson are as different as sisters can be. One stayed at home to raise her children and manage the family apple orchard: the other followed a dream and traveled the world to become a famous photojournalist. But when their beloved father fails ill, Meredith and Nina find themselves together again, standing alongside their cold, disapproving mother, Anya, who even now, offers no comfort to her daughters. As children, the only connection between them was the Russian fairy tale Anya sometimes told the girls at night. On his deathbed, their father extracts a promise from the women in his life: the fairy tale will be told one last time - and all the way to the end. Thus begins an unexpected journey into the truth of Anya's life in war-torn Leningrad, more than five decades ago. Alternating between the past and present, Meredith and Nina will finally hear the singular, harrowing story of their mother's life, and what they learn is a secret so terrible and terrifying that it will shake the very foundation of their family and change who they believe they are.

Release date: February 2, 2009

glad to hear about this one - I read Firefly Lane recently and LOVED it! Looks like I will be "waiting on" it too!

I have never read anything by this author, but this sounds good. I have always had a soft spot for dysfunctional family dramas (in literature and movies, I don't like them much in real life. :-) )

Michelle -- It's very good so far! Only problem is it's due back at the library and I have a LOT left to read so it might have to wait until it comes up on my holds again. =( I'll turn it in tonight and try to get as much as I can read today (since I'm off work!)

Laurel -- Me too... I don't generally even read the synopses anymore... I just know I'm going to read it if it's one of hers, hehe

Melissa -- Her books are like chicken soup for me. My comfort books, hehe. Her and Barbara Delinsky.

booksync -- Firefly Lane was so good!! I also loved Magic Hour.

Laughing Stars -- haha! They're definitely easier to deal with in books and movies than in real life. =)

Jen -- me too!
