"Waiting On" Wednesday: Losing Charlotte

"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:

Losing Charlotte
By Heather Clay
Publication Date: March 23

From Amazon:

Born and raised on their parents’ lush Kentucky horse farm, Charlotte and Knox Bolling grew up intimately connected; yet their bond frayed as one of them sought to rebel within their close family. When Charlotte moves north to New York and marries Bruce, leaving her sister firmly rooted on home soil, the two women seem to stand on opposite sides of a geographic and ever-widening emotional divide. But their fates are forever intertwined when Charlotte dies giving birth to twin boys, and Knox steps into her sister’s vanished life for an interim to help care for them. For Knox and Bruce grief is initially subsumed by exhaustion and duty as they plow through their daily rounds. The crucible of their devastating weeks together is the backdrop against which these survivors, all but strangers to each other, will be tested in unforeseen ways and grapple with a deeper understanding of the woman they both loved.

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

I am such a sucker for books with an animal on the cover - especially horses!

Here's mine this week - Anxious Hearts.

Ooh, that sounds really good! I don't have a WoW pick this week but I'd like to wish you a Merry Christmas and say thanks for hosting this meme. I really enjoy it!

And I'm going to be fixing the Hot Chicken Salad recipe that you posted a while ago (on another post). We're having friends over and I think this will be perfect. : )
