"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Newlyweds
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
By Nell Freudenberger
Publication Date: May 1
Amina Mazid is 24 when she leaves Bangladesh for Rochester, New York, and for George Stillman, the husband who met and wooed her online. It's a 21st century romance that echoes ancient traditions--the arranged marriages of her home country. And though George falls for Amina because she is "straightforward" and doesn't "play games," each is hiding something from the other. Amina struggles to find her place in America--as a Muslim woman, an aspiring teacher, a wife with her own desires. But it is only when they put an ocean between them that Amina and George will discover whether they have a future--or if their secrets will tear them apart.
