"Waiting On" Wednesday: Gone

"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:

Gone
By Cathi Hanauer
Publication Date: June 19

From Amazon:

For the past 14 years, Eve Adams has worked part-time while raising her two children and emotionally supporting her sculptor husband, Eric, through his early fame and success. Now, at forty-two, she suddenly finds herself with a growing career of her own—even as Eric’s career sinks deeper into the slump it slipped into a few years ago.
    
After a dinner at a local restaurant to celebrate Eve’s success, Eric drives the babysitter home and, simply, doesn’t come back. Eve must now shift the family in possibly irreparable ways, forcing her to realize that competence in one area of life doesn’t always keep things from unraveling in another.

This one sounds interesting! "Gone" sounds like an autobiography of a friend of my mom's. It's almost identical to her life. Great pick!

Mariann said...

Hi,
I have never heard of this author or book before. Your teaser has me interested enough to look it up and add it to my TBR pile--but it does sound sad!! Have you read any other books from this author??

I always love checking out your selections because they aren't usually in the genre that I would gravitate to, but they tempt me to try new things... This is definitely one that I'm going to write down, though I'll have to wait for the right mood to read it. Sounds as though it will be heart warming, but thoroughly depressing.

Happy WoW!

Lilian said...

Never heard of Gone, it's not a genre I usually read, but I am intrigued! Thank you so much for sharing.

Happy reading (or waiting),

This one sounds really good! I think I see my TBR growing!

Kay said...

Hmmm...I'll have to think about this one. At first I thought it sounded like a mystery - husband doesn't return - but after checking it out a little more, it seems like a story of a relationship and taking a "time out". Thanks for highlighting it.

Mandi Kaye said...

That sounds like a heartbreaking, but ultimately victorious, read. Great pick!

Devan @ Book Strings said...

Sounds interesting.

My WoW this week is The Loners by Lex Thomas: http://bookstrings.blogspot.com/2012/03/wow-15.html

Angel said...

You pick the best books!

Crystal said...

Another great pick. I pinned this one to my Books I want to read board so I don't forget (I have too many books on Goodreads now I tend to forget them, but I'm afraid this will happen with Pinterest as well). Gone sounds like just the novel I like to read in the midst of the books I normally read.

Amy said...

This sounds like a very emotional and suspense filled book. I really like the cover.

bermudaonion said...

That sounds like a book many women could relate to.

Alishia said...

Love the Waiting on Wednesday feature.

Joy said...

My my sometimes men just stink..lol
Sounds like a good one. Have fun reading and a great week Jill.

Ellen said...

Love Waiting on Wednesday!

Christy @ Captivated Reading said...

I may have to pick this book up! Never even heard of the author.

Violette said...

This book sounds totally up my alley. Thanks for sharing!!

Cecelia said...

My first thought on reading that summary is that it sounds unbearably sad. I hope there's HOPE in it somewhere.

The hubby leaves and never comes back, just skips out on his family. What a loser, but it makes for a good story about survival and independence. Maybe they will even find a way to get back together?

mystmusician said...

This is my first WoW! :) Mine was for the book "Want"! The cover looks amazing and it's about a girl wanting to become a piano virtuoso! -Amanda

Natasa @ The Young Adult Cover said...

Hmmm sounds thoughtful and provoking. I went with a serious theme as well this week with Ferocity Summer by Alissa Grosso.
