Wednesday, May 5, 2010


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:



Red Hook Road by Ayelet Waldman

Release date: July 13, 2010


From bn.com:

As lyrical as a sonata, Ayelet Waldman's follow-up novel to Love and Other Impossible Pursuits explores the aftermath of a family tragedy. Set on the coast of Maine over the course of four summers, Red Hook Road tells the story of two families, the Tetherlys and the Copakens, and of the ways in which their lives are unraveled and stitched together by misfortune, by good intentions and failure, and by love and calamity. A marriage collapses under the strain of a daughter's death; two bereaved siblings find comfort in one another; and an adopted young girl breathes new life into her family with her prodigious talent for the violin. As she writes with obvious affection for these unforgettable characters, Ayelet Waldman skillfully interweaves life's finer pleasures--music and literature--with the more mundane joys of living. Within these resonant pages, a vase filled with wildflowers or a cold beer on a hot summer day serve as constant reminders...

I really liked her previous novel. I did not like her mommy mysteries however! This one sounds like something right up my alley. Thanks!

Laurel -- I loved her other books too!

Zibilee -- Yay! I look forward to your review!!

Jennifer -- can't wait!

nomadreader -- Ooh! Look forward to your review!

Michelle -- I've heard that from other people that they didn't care for her mommy mysteries, but I liked them! But I agree that they are totally different than the last book she wrote for sure.
