Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and it is a weekly feature where bloggers share what they are excited to read next.
Here is my pick for the week:
The author of five
blockbuster novels, Emily Giffin, delivers an unforgettable story of two
women, the families that make them who they are, and the longing,
loyalty and love that binds them together
is a thirty-six year old television producer, living her dream in New
York City. With a fulfilling career and satisfying relationship, she has
convinced everyone, including herself, that her life is just as she
wants it to be. But one night, Marian answers a knock on the door . . .
only to find Kirby Rose, an eighteen-year-old girl with a key to a past
that Marian thought she had sealed off forever. From the moment Kirby
appears on her doorstep, Marian’s perfectly constructed world—and her
very identity—will be shaken to its core, resurrecting ghosts and
memories of a passionate young love affair that threaten everything that
has come to define her.
For the precocious and determined
Kirby, the encounter will spur a process of discovery that ushers her
across the threshold of adulthood, forcing her to re-evaluate her family
and future in a wise and bittersweet light. As the two women embark on a
journey to find the one thing missing in their lives, each will come to
recognize that where we belong is often where we least expect to find
ourselves—a place that we may have willed ourselves to forget, but that
the heart remembers forever.
I quite enjoy Giffin's novels. She wrote Something Borrowed which was turned into a movie with Kate Hudson and Ginnifer Goodwin. I can't wait for this one to come out on July 24th, 2012.
I look forward to seeing what you have picked for your weekly wishlist. Happy Reading!
