"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:
Publication Date: March 17
A sequel to the bestselling, much-beloved Wish You Were Here, Stewart O'Nan's intimate new novel follows Emily Maxwell, a widow whose grown children have long moved away. She dreams of vists by her grandchildren while mourning the turnover of her quiet Pittsburgh neighborhood, but when her sole companion and sister-in-law Arlene faints at their favorite breakfast buffet, Emily's days change. As she grapples with her new independence, she discovers a hidden strength and realizes that life always offers new possibilities.

Now wish had already read Wish You Were Here because the sequel sounds good too! Hope you get the book to read Jill!
this sounds like a great read. It's funny how just one incident, one moment can have such a powerful effect on a person. Hope you enjoy it when you get your copy.
Here's my WOW this week
I like the sound of this and will have to read Wish You Were Here first. Thanks for a great meme.
This is what I'm waiting on this week.
This sequel sounds very interesting, love when characters are empowered in some way. Great pick!
I like the cover of Emily Alone. Very nice! Thanks for the great meme!
Sounds interesting. I haven't read the first book, yet!
The cover of this book looks so cute. I've never heard of Wish You Were Here- I'll have to look into it. Thanks for the suggestion.
This is my first time participating in WoW, but I've always loved seeing everyone's posts! Thank you so much for hosting it. :-)
"Emily, Alone" sounds like it will be quite an emotional read. I haven't read "Wish You Were Here" but it all sounds very interesting :)
Nice pick this week. Thanks for hosting!
