"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Bird Sisters


"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 Bird Sisters
By Rebecca Rasmussen
Publication Date: April 12

From Amazon:

Love is timeless. So too is heartbreak. Whenever a bird flies into a window in Spring Green, Wisconsin, sisters Milly and Twiss get a visit. Twiss listens to the birds' heartbeats, assessing what she can fix and what she can't, while Milly listens to the heartaches of the people who've brought them. The two sisters have spent their lives nursing people and birds back to health.

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

The Bird Sisters sounds interesting-- I'd never heard of it before now. Maybe not my cup of tea-- I have a pretty severe case of ornithophobia. :)

That really is an interesting pick. It sounds very deep and meaningful. Two sisters who look after broken hearts...I think I may have to check that one out. My WOW pick is quite different from yours: http://preview.tinyurl.com/WOWllw

Gina & Scot said...

Hmmm, it sounds different, not something I'd pick up and read just from the summary. What I do like about it is its breaking new ground.

Jess - A Book Hoarder said...

Zee said...

I just found your site and I really like it. I am not following.

(Diane) Bibliophile By the Sea said...

Like the sound of this!

Maggie Desmond-O'Brien said...

Is this magical realism? Fantasy? Something else entirely? Sounds like it really straddles genres, which I love, as long as it's done well.

Rebecca Rasmussen said...

Wow -- I just found this. Ahem, I am the author of The Bird Sisters...and I want to thank everyone for commenting so graciously and for being excited. I am doing a happy dance in my living room right now. Truly. Thank you, Jill and everyone. Finding this made my night :)
