"Waiting On" Wednesday: Every Last One

"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:

Every Last One
By Anna Quindlen
Publication Date: April 27

From Amazon:

"Mary Beth Latham is first and foremost a mother, whose three teenaged children come first, before her career as a landscape gardener, or even her life as the wife of a doctor. Caring for her family and preserving their everyday life is paramount. And so, when one of her sons, Max, becomes depressed, Mary Beth becomes focused on him, and is blindsided by a shocking act of violence. What happens afterwards is a testament to the power of a woman’s love and determination, and to the invisible line of hope and healing that connects one human being with another. Every Last One is a novel about facing every last one of the the things we fear most, about finding ways to navigate a road we never intended to travel, to live a life we never dreamed we’d have to live but must be brave enough to try."

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

I've somehow never read any of Anna Quindlen's fiction, even though I enjoy her articles and A Short Guide To A Happy Life. I really need to correct that oversight.

Carina said...

That doesn't quite look like something I'd want to read, and yet it still has some crossover with my pick this week - they're both in some way about women's struggles. :-)

Kay said...

A bit late this week, but here is my Waiting on Wednesday

tarynwanderer said...

My WOW is a pick that actually came out on Wednesday, so I hope it still counts :) It's a sci-fi novel by the great Connie Willis!
