"Waiting On" Wednesday: Sea Creatures

"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:


Sea Creatures
By Susanna Daniel

Publication Date: July 30

From Amazon:

When Georgia Qullian returns to her hometown of Miami, her toddler and husband in tow, she is hoping for a fresh start. They have left Illinois trailing scandal and disappointment in their wake, fallout from her husband’s severe sleep disorder. For months, their three-year-old son has refused to speak a word.
 
On a whim, Georgia takes a job as an errand runner for a reclusive artist and is surprised at how her life changes dramatically. But soon the family’s challenges return, more complicated than before. Late that summer, as a hurricane bears down on South Florida, Georgia must face the fact that her decisions have put her only child in grave danger.

I haven't heard of this one until now, and of course planning on adding it to my TBR list.
How are you enjoying the Claire Messud book? I read that as an ARC for the Amazon Vine program....didn't love it, but didn't hate it, either.
