"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Paying Guests


"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 Paying Guests
By Sarah Waters

Publication Date: September 16

From Amazon:

It is 1922, and London is tense. Ex-servicemen are disillusioned; the out-of-work and the hungry are demanding change. And in South London, in a genteel Camberwell villa—a large, silent house now bereft of brothers, husband, and even servants—life is about to be transformed as impoverished widow Mrs. Wray and her spinster daughter, Frances, are obliged to take in lodgers.

With the arrival of Lilian and Leonard Barber, a modern young couple of the “clerk class,” the routines of the house will be shaken up in unexpected ways. Little do the Wrays know just how profoundly their new tenants will alter the course of Frances’s life—or, as passions mount and frustration gathers, how far-reaching, and how devastating, the disturbances will be.

I absolutely adore anything that is set or has to do with London in any way! Will definitely have to add this book to my Goodreads list! Thanks for hosting. :)

I'm looking forward to this book as well. Sarah Water's writing is amazing.

Well, it does make me curious about what the couple brings to the table. But doesn't really look like the kind of book I'd pick up easily.
