"Waiting On" Wednesday: Home Front

"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:

Home Front
By Kristin Hannah
Publication Date: January 31

From publisher:

From a distance, Michael and Joleen Zarkades seem to have it all: a solid marriage, two exciting careers, and children they adore. But after twelve years together, the couple has lost their way; they are unhappy and edging toward divorce. As a military family the notion of deployment is never out of the realm of possibility. But when it actually happens it seems to tear their already fragile family apart, sending one of them deep into harm’s way and leaving the other at home, waiting for news. When the worst happens, each must face their darkest fear and fight for the future of their family.

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

I have Night Road on my shelf by this author, waiting to be read. All her books have a similar cover sensibility. Nice choice!

I accidentally entered my link twice. Sorry!

I love the photo on the cover of this book. Very pretty!

Julie said...

I haven't read any Kristan Hannah books. I've been interested in Night Road. I love the cover of the one you're reading now. I'll have to check both out!

Bookshelf Reviewer said...

Awesome WoW this week, sounds good.

The Romanceaholic said...

While that doesn't really sound like something I'd normally be interested, it might be worth giving a shot.

I have to be in the mood for the whole "marriage in crisis" thing, but I know often times they're some of the most satisfying endings.

I love Kristin Hannah - and the fact that she regularly publishes a book almost every year. I'll be looking forward to this one.

The cover looks very pretty! :)

Shonda said...

I really like Kristin Hannah. I've read her recent novels and want to go back and read her earlier books. Home Front sounds good. Hard to believe we're thinking about 2012 releases!

This cover looks like one from a previous book of hers (at least the colors are the same).....enjoy

Jennifer G. said...

I have never read any of her books, but I did just pick up two or three of them at Goodwill last week. Hope they're good!

This one sounds really interesting, and I love the cover!

lsl_scrapper said...

I love Kristin Hannah's books. This one is on my '2-read' list as soon as I can get it!

Mardel said...

I'm a little be late, all those entries,my goodness! WOW is popular!

I'm yearning for three books (really more, but three for now, lol)

Kristin Hannah writes some good books. I read one long ago that featured a not quite perfect leading man - best romance style I've read in a while. :)

Lisa Mandina said...

I haven't read any books by this author, but she seems to sell pretty well at the bookstore where I work.

kate said...

Mepis said...

Thanks for the weekly hop! I just added our blog to it, "Hippies, Beauty, and Books. Oh My!"

I like you choice to. I'm making a note of it. Hopefully someday my to-read list will shrink. Some day.

Hippies, Beauty, and Books. Oh My!

Felicia said...

Thanks for the meme!!! I ♥ it!!! :))

mrs_laura_koehler said...

Wow this sounds good. Being in a marriage with someone always away is hard enough, but it it is true love then sometimes you have to fight for it. I haven't been married long going on 3 years but me and my husband have been together going on 9. We were apart for 8 months one time and it was so hard. I can't imagine doing that all the time. I know though that marriage is wonderful but you do have to work at it. So this book sounds like they have to decide if it is worth fighting for, and that means the fighting is more closer to home.

Mimi Valentine said...

I just can't get over how awesome this meme is! There are just so many awesome books that people are waiting on!

Here's my WOW! And you can check out my 100 Followers Giveaway if you have the time! :)

Bibliosaurus Text said...

I hadn't heard of this one before, and while it doesn't seem like something I'd normally read, it does sound intriguing.

Leslie said...

That's a great cover, though I don't think the story would be in my wheelhouse.

My pick this week is Flame of Surrender by Rhiannon Paille. Sounds like the first in what will be a pretty epic fantasy series.
