"Waiting On" Wednesday: So Happy Together


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

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

So Happy Together
By Maryann Mcfadden
Publication Date: July 7
From Amazon:

"Claire Noble gave up on her dreams a long time ago. A single mother and respected history teacher, she has also been caring for her aging parents. But now it's finally Claire's turn. She has fallen in love with Rick Saunders, who is offering her both security and the opportunity to travel. Before their fall wedding, she will be leaving for a summer on Cape Cod, where the fabled light has been luring artists for a century; and the chance of a lifetime to study with one of the most noted photographers in the country. But just as Claire is about to step into her new life, her estranged daughter suddenly shows up with a backpack full of problems.

So Happy Together is the story of three generations of women who find their lives, and dreams, suddenly transformed in ways they never could have imagined. But ultimately, it is the heartbreaking and joyful journey of one woman who comes to realize that when you're a mother, or a daughter, you are never truly free."

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

So true that a woman is never truly free .. as a wife, mother and daughter. We take the good with the bad and try and make lemonade with the lemons!
Here is my post at The Burton Review, perfect for the History buffs.
