"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Embers


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

The Embers
By Hyatt Bass
Publication Date: June 23

From Amazon:

"Emily Ascher should be celebrating: she just got engaged to the man she loves, her job is moving in new and fulfilling directions, and her once-rocky relationship with her mother, Laura, has finally mellowed into an easy give-and-take. But with the promise of new love settling into old comes a difficult look at how her family has been torn apart in the many years since her brother died. Her parents have long since divorced, and her father, Joe, a famous actor and playwright who has been paralyzed with grief since the tragedy, carries the blame for his son’s death—but what really happened on that winter night? Why has he been unable to clear his name, or even discuss that evening with Laura and Emily? As spring looms—and with it Emily’s wedding in the Berkshires and an unveiling of Joe’s new play—each Ascher begins to reevaluate the events of long ago, finally facing the truth of his or her own culpability in them."

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

Hi, I'm the writer of THE EMBERS, and am so happy you chose my book. I can't wait for all of you to read it. If you are a member of the Amazon Vine program, you will get an advance copy. Btw, just got my first review today--to run in Publisher's Weekly next week--and it's really good!
