"Waiting On" Wednesday: Home Safe


This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Home Safe
By Elizabeth Berg
Publication Date: April 28

From Amazon:

"Beloved author Elizabeth Berg tells the story of the recently widowed Helen Ames and of her twenty-seven-year-old daughter Tessa. Helen is shocked to discover that her mild-mannered and loyal husband had been leading a double life. The Ames’s had saved money for a happy retirement, planned in minute detail, but that money has disappeared in several big withdrawals—spent by Helen’s husband before he died. What could he possibly have been doing? And what is Helen to do now? Why does Helen’s daughter object to her mother’s applying for a job—and why doesn’t Tessa meet a nice man and get married? What Helen’s husband did with all their money turns out to be provocative, revelatory—and leads Helen and her daughter to embark on new adventures, and change."

What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

I'm joining the waiting ranks because
this book sounded too good to not lust after :)

Diane said...

Thank you so much, I was not aware of the Berg book. Jill...I looked at your past posts, and our taste in books is very similar. I just requested several of the ones you posted about in the later part of 2008.

Thanks again

Hi Jill, actually this is my second W.O.W. but it was several months ago that I posted that one. I will try to do it each week. I think it's a great feature.
