"Waiting On" Wednesday: Those We Love Most

"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:

Those We Love Most
By Lee Woodruff
Publication Date: September 11

From Amazon:

Life is good for Maura Corrigan. Married to her college sweetheart, Pete, raising three young kids with her parents nearby in her peaceful Chicago suburb, her world is secure. Then one day, in a single turn of fate, that entire world comes crashing down and everything that she thought she knew changes.

Maura must learn to move forward with the weight of grief and the crushing guilt of an unforgivable secret. Pete senses a gap growing between him and his wife but finds it easier to escape to the bar with his friends than face the flaws in his marriage.

Meanwhile, Maura's parents are dealing with the fault lines in their own marriage. Charismatic Roger, who at sixty-five, is still chasing the next business deal and Margaret, a pragmatic and proud homemaker, have been married for four decades, seemingly happily. But the truth is more complicated. Like Maura, Roger has secrets of his own and when his deceptions and weaknesses are exposed, Margaret's love and loyalty face the ultimate test.

This doesn't exactly sound like my kind of read (fracturing marriages) as I tend to prefer happier cheer. I will need to keep an eye out for reviews that share if it is worth it.

Would you believe this is on my WoW list, too - just not this week!I have enjoyed Woodruff's non-fiction books, so I am interested in seeing how well she transitions to fiction.

I love it when a book synopsis starts talking about an "unforgivable secret", that's always one sure-fire way to make me want to read it! :)

This sounds different but I do like the cover :D **Happy Wednesday**

FABR Steph said...

Those We Love Most sounds like an emotional story. I enjoy books like this myself. Hoping for things to get resolved and how the characters get there can be such a ride.

Hmmm, not sure if I will read this book. Might be too much reality drama for me.

Not my type of book, but it still sounds good. Every once in a while I pick up something I wouldn't normally read and am pleasantly surprised.

I must admit I've never seen this book around, and I tend to avoid novels that focus on the recovery of people who've lost something. But thanks for making me aware of it, and I might check it out again later!

Hi

I've not heard of this book and I don't think that it'd be my usual type of read, but thank you for bringing a new read to my notice.

Happy Reading!!!
