"Waiting On" Wednesday: Left

"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:


Left
By Tamar Ossowski

Publication Date: October 1

From Amazon:

Therese Wolley is a mother who has made a promise. She works as a secretary, shops for groceries on Saturdays, and takes care of her two girls. She doesn’t dwell on the fact that her girls are fatherless, mostly because her own father abandoned her before she was born and she has done just fine without him.

Even though her older daughter regularly wakes with nightmares and her younger one whispers letters under her breath, she doesn’t shift from her resolve that everything will be fine. She promises . . . and they believe.

Until the morning an obituary in the newspaper changes everything. Therese immediately knows what she has to do. She cannot delay what she has planned, and she cannot find the words to explain her heartbreaking decision to her daughters. She considers her responsibilities, her girls, and her promise. Then she does the only thing that any real mother would do. She goes on the run with one daughter . . . and abandons the other.


What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

This does sound great! I am dying to know why she would take one child and leave the other! I'm definitely adding this one.

WOW is right - this one sounds like my kind of book for sure. I love the premise. Great pick.

The synopsis sounds positively gripping. I added it to my TBR straight away. I have to know what could possibly make leaving one to go on the run with the other the "best thing" any mother would do.

Sherre said...

OMG!!!!! That sounds sooo interesting. This isnt my normal genre, and I dont normally like books where people have children because I can't really fit myself into it. Still, this seems really good and I may just have to break my rule for this one. Thanks for putting it out there!!

Greg said...

I was reading the synopsis of Left, thinking okay, this seems like a nice read. Then I reached the part about her leaving one of the kids, and my jaw dropped.
Seems interesting.

My waiting on is for Premeditated by Josin McQuien.

Thanks for hosting!
