"Waiting On" Wednesday: Mothers and Daughters

"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:

Mothers and Daughters
By Rae Meadows
Publication Date: March 29

From Amazon:

Samantha is lost in the joys of new motherhood...but in trading her artistic dreams to care for her child, Sam worries she's lost something of herself. And she is still mourning another loss: her mother, Iris, died just one year ago.

When a box of Iris's belongings arrives on Sam's doorstep, she discovers links to pieces of her family history but is puzzled by much of the information the box contains. In confronting secrets from her family's past, Sam comes to terms with deep secrets from her own.

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