"Waiting On" Wednesday: No Time to Wave Goodbye


"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:

No Time to Wave Goodbye
By Jacquelyn Mitchard
Publication Date: September 15

From Amazon:

"It has been twenty-two years since Beth Cappadora’s three-year-old son Ben was abducted. By some miracle, he returned nine years later, and the family began to pick up the pieces of their lives. But their peace has always been fragile: Ben returned from the deep end as another child and has never felt entirely at ease with the family he was born into. Now the Cappadora children are grown: Ben is married with a baby girl, Kerry is studying to be an opera singer, and Vincent has emerged from his troubled adolescence as a fledgling filmmaker.

The subject of Vincent’s new documentary, “No Time to Wave Goodbye,” shakes Vincent’s unsuspecting family to the core; it focuses on five families caught in the tortuous web of never knowing the fate of their abducted children. Though Beth tries to stave off the torrent of buried emotions, she is left wondering if she and her family are fated to relive the past forever.

The film earns tremendous acclaim, but just as the Cappadoras are about to celebrate the culmination of Vincent’s artistic success, what Beth fears the most occurs, and the Cappadoras are cast back into the past, revisiting the worst moment of their lives—with only hours to find the truth that can save a life. High in a rugged California mountain range, their rescue becomes a desperate struggle for survival."

I have always loved Mitchard's newspaper columns (I think she got let go more than a year ago, however, at least in Milwaukee) and was eager to read "Deep End" many moons ago. I didn't like it as much as i thought I would, but it was OK -- I was always surprised at the Oprah pick.

But to find out what happens next is irresistable. I had no idea this was coming out. Thanks!

Off to put it on hold.

Book Dragon said...

This one sounds great. I may make you one of my first stops when I'm looking for a new book to read.

I mistakenly added today's Wow to last week's post. Here it is again, actually I've got three.

I'm really enjoying this WoW posting, lol. Last week the author contacted me on mine and now I'm going to be able to review a copy of the book I wanted! I'm so excited! Yay! lol.

Anywho,

Your WoW pick for the week sounds very interesting. Kind of reminds me of The Face on The Milk Carton, lol.
