"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Sisters
"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: November 8
Growing up in hardscrabble Kentucky in the 1920s, with their mother dead and their stepfather an ever-present threat, Bertie Fisher and her older sister Mabel have no one but each other—with perhaps a sweetheart for Bertie waiting in the wings. But on the day that Bertie receives her eighth-grade diploma, good intentions go terribly wrong, setting off a chain of misunderstandings that will send the sisters on separate paths and reverberate through their daughters’ and granddaughters’ lives. From the Depression through World War II and Vietnam, and smaller events both tragic and joyful, Bertie and Mabel forge unexpected identities and raise daughters—and sisters—of their own, learning that love and betrayal are even more complicated than they seem.
What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

The Sisters sounds like an interesting read. Definitely one for my consider-to-read pile.
Not sure this book would be for me, but that teacup on the cover is just gorgeous!
This sounds like a really good story.... I love historical fiction like this! Also, love that cover :)

I think your pick sounds great. Thanks for sharing it!
This sounds really good! I might just check it out;)
Sounds like a good read, although historical fiction isn't really my thing. The cover is really cute though!
I always see something new and interesting!
Sounds like an interesting pick :)
Here's my WOW pick.
Wit and Sin
I think it's a good story but it's kinda dark and I like it. I love drama!
I'm adding this to my list. I like the cover.
I'm intrigued to find out what relevance the teacup on the cover has to the story.
heres my waiting on wednesday
Wow, this sounds fantastic! I hadn't heard of it before but I will be adding it to my TBR list. Great pick!
Oh, I must add this one to my list! It sounds like my cup of tea. Thanks for sharing.
This is our first WOW with Breaking the Spine. I was excited to find you.
Your book sounds good. I'm going to look into it and maybe add it to my ever-growing list of TBR books! :o)
Thanks! Here's my WoW for this week!

Hi, will come back and comment t...Sorry...more fully later. Going to work. Linked to the whole blog instead of to the post, so I tried to link again, and couldn't do it...
Sounds good, It has a pretty cover :)
Sisters seem to be a popular theme this year, and I'm enjoying the explorations of these complex relationships. This one is definitely going on my list as I love reading books set in the South during this time period.
Here's my pick for this week: http://aseaofbooks.blogspot.com/2011/05/waiting-on-wednesday-house-on-oyster.html
The Sisters sounds good! I hadn't heard of it before.
I just posted my link to the list, this is my first time participating. I'm going to go around and see what other people are waiting for now! : )
Ooh, this sounds like a good one! Thanks for sharing...adding to my TBR list now :)
I'm not a huge fan of historical fiction, but this seems good!
Love books about sisters, I have three..Have a great week reading!
Joy at Books and Life
I love when history and ficition meets. Sounds good.
Amy (new follower) sorry apparently i am supposed to write this.
Here I am, on the sly at work...lol. Anyway, just to let you know -- you can delete link #77. What happened was that, in my hurry this morning, I linked to the home page, instead of to the WOW post. (I was half-asleep...) I was able to link up again -- that link is #81, which is the link to the WOW post. I'm really sorry about that. Guess I should have had my coffee first, right?
Anyway...your pick looks real good! Not my usual cup of tea (pun intended), as I lean more to anything fantastical and out of the ordinary, but still, I think I'll add it to my TBR pile. I agree with Penelope -- the cover is just beautiful! Besides, I do like historical fiction from time to time!
Thanks for sharing! : )
Sounds like a real page turner. Hope you enjoy it when it comes out.
My WoW is rather a far-sighted look, but I'm sure excited about it!
I'm waiting on FOREVER by Maggie Stiefvater!! It's vying for the top spot as my favorite paranormal series with the Hex Hall books... :)

Waiting on Wednesday: "Forever" by Maggie Stiefvater
Nice pick for this week. It has been added to my pile.
The Sisters sounds intriguing! I love this meme. I've added my link to the list, which is HUGE lol. Thanks for hosting this. :-)
A very interesting choice, sounds good.
I don't think I could ever get bored of reading about sisters. Plus, books that span along time always intrigue me. Great choice.
Sounds like a great read!
The Sisters sounds interesting, I have not heard about this book before.
Your WOW looks awesome!
The Sisters sounds great, but I don't think I'm up for historical drama right now, though I'll certainly keep it in mind for future reads.
Thanks for a great meme!
It sounds like an interesting pick :)
My WoW, http://obsessionwithbooks.blogspot.com
Thank you for hosting the linky!!
This sounds like a book I would love to read in a hammock by a lake, the perfect on-vacation story.
This sounds like an interesting book, I love historical fiction so I'll be adding this to my list of books to read for sure! :)
Love the cover! Must add to my list!
