"Waiting On" Wednesday: Rescue


"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:

Rescue
By Anita Shreve
Publication Date: November 30

From LibraryThing:

Peter Webster is a rookie paramedic when he pulls a young woman out of a car wreck that should have killed her. Sheila haunts his thoughts, and despite his misgivings, Peter is soon embroiled in an intense love affair. Nineteen years later, Sheila is long gone and Peter is raising their daughter, Rowan, alone—until a phone call from Sheila alters their quiet existence, bringing long-buried questions back to the surface. A story about trespass and forgiveness, secrets and the seismic force of the truth, Rescue is a masterful portrayal of a family trying to understand its own fractured past and begin again.

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

Oh! Anita Shreve is great, but her books always make me cry. They are so sad! The only one that didn't make me depressed was The Pilot's Wife. I keep reading her because I think she'll give me a HEA but I'm still waiting...

Lauren said...

I'm just waiting on Nicole Baart's next book. I'm not sure if it's going to be her last one with Tyndale that comes out first, or her first book with Simon and Schuster. Either way, I'm excited to read both, but I don't think they're coming out until next year. :(
