"Waiting On" Wednesday: Come Sunday


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

Come Sunday
By Isla Morley
Publication Date: May 26

From Amazon:

"Abbe Deighton is a woman who has lost her bearings. Once a child of the African plains, she is now settled in Hawaii, married to a minister, and waging her battles in a hallway of monotony. There is the leaky roof, the chafing expectations of her husband’s congregation, and the constant demands of motherhood. But in an instant, beginning with the skid of tires, Abbe’s battlefield is transformed when her three-year-old daughter is killed, triggering in Abbe a seismic grief that will cut a swath through the landscape of her life and her identity. Come Sunday is a novel about searching for a true homeland, family bonds torn asunder, and the unearthing of decades-old secrets."

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

How heartbreaking to lose a child. Those are the kinds of books that even though I know I will cry I end up reading anyway! Here is mine.
