"Waiting On" Wednesday: Summer House


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

Summer House
By Nancy Thayer
Publication Date: June 23

From Amazon:

"At 30, Charlotte Wheelwright remains the dreamer she’s always been. But when she begins an organic garden on a portion of her grandmother’s land, Charlotte learns to plant her feet in solid ground and begins to build a new life. More often than not, 90-year-old Nona Wheelwright contentedly spends her time reminiscing about days gone by. But with her family’s annual reunion and financial meeting looming, Nona must give up her days of quiet solitude to soothe her easily riled up family. For decades Charlotte’s mother, Helen, who married into the illustrious Wheelwright family, has been pressured to adhere to their way of life. But when, during the course of the family’s annual summer retreat, she discovers her husband’s betrayal, Helen wonders if she sacrificed her dreams for the wrong reasons."

That sounds like it would be interesting - especially with the multiple generations of women in the story.
