"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Firelight Girls


"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 Firelight Girls
By Kaya McLaren

Publication Date: October 14

From Amazon:

The summers you spend at summer camp are indelibly etched on your heart. But what happens when the camp you love is about to close? Can you ever really say goodbye to the place that made you who you are?  These are the questions that plagues Ethel, the 70-year-old former camp director who is nursing a broken heart after losing the love of her life as she now faces the impending closure of the camp on Lake Wenatchee that she called home. It's also a question that inspires change in 40-year-old Shannon, who spent the summers of her youth as a vibrant, capable camp counselor and is now directionless after watching her career implode. And there's Laura, who has lost all intimacy with her husband and doesn't know if she can save what seems to be gone forever. Finally, Ruby, who betrayed Ethel years ago and hasn't spoken to her since, hopes this will be her chance to make amends. When the four women learn that a homeless teen has been hiding at camp, they realize camp is something much more immediate for all: survival. 

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

Never read books about people after crossing 40. But looks like a heart-breaker.

I loved the cover and synopsis, but tonight as I was really looking at the author, I realized Kaya McLaren wrote How I Came to Sparkle Again, and now I am even more excited for this one to come out.
