"Waiting On" Wednesday: The View From Here

"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:

The View From Here
By Deborah McKinlay
Publication Date: February 1

From Amazon:

When Frances was twenty-two, she was drifting, scraping by giving English lessons in Mexico, when she met up with a glamorous group of vacationing Americans staying in a mansion on a private beach. Two decades later in rural England, she discovers a love letter from a younger woman addressed to her husband almost at the same time as she learns that she’s facing a life-threatening illness. As her contented existence begins to unravel and she tries to decide how and if she will confront her husband about his infidelity, Frances finds herself haunted by the memory of her heady desert encounter with the charmed circle of the Severance family.

Sounds like a very interesting plot. I'd love to read the parts in Mexico. Sounds like a fun way to scrape by during your early 20s. I love the cover, even though it looks like a lot of other covers.

This sounds intriguing. I've been reading a lot of YA and sometimes I like to dig into a more adult book. I'll be adding this to my TBR list. Thanks. Looking forward to it.
