"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Same Sky

"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 Same Sky
By Amanda Eyre Ward

Publication Date: January 27

From Amazon:

Alice and her husband, Jake, own a barbecue restaurant in Austin, Texas. Hardworking and popular in their community, they have a loving marriage and thriving business, but Alice still feels that something is missing, lying just beyond reach.
Carla is a strong-willed young girl who’s had to grow up fast, acting as caretaker to her six-year-old brother Junior. Years ago, her mother left the family behind in Honduras to make the arduous, illegal journey to Texas. But when Carla’s grandmother dies and violence in the city escalates, Carla takes fate into her own hands—and with Junior, she joins the thousands of children making their way across Mexico to America, risking great peril for the chance at a better life. 
In this elegant novel, the lives of Alice and Carla will intersect in a profound and surprising way.

Love the sound of this one!

This sounds like it could be emotional. I'm curious as to how the two will intersect.

Laura said...

I hope you enjoy it when it comes out. It does sound emotional, but in some ways possibly predictable. Hoping it's better than that!
