"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Weight of Memory

"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 Weight of Memory
By Jennifer Paddock
Publication Date: May 4

From Amazon:

In The Weight of Memory, memory is the common thread running through the storylines of Chandler, Sarah, and Leigh . All three women are from the same hometown, witnessed the death of a boy they all loved in high school, have complicated relationships with their fathers, and ride out Hurricane Katrina together in Destin, Florida.
