"Waiting On" Wednesday: So Far Away
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
So Far Away
Publication Date: May 29
Thirteen-year-old Natalie Gallagher is trying to escape: from her parents' ugly divorce, and from the vicious cyber-bullying of her former best friend. Kathleen Lynch is an archivist at a Boston library, a widow, estranged from her only daughter. Their very different lives are joined by a woman long-dead--Bridget O' Meara, who came to Boston in 1925 to work as a maid. When Natalie discovers Bridget's diary in her mother's attic, she embarks on a quest to learn more about the woman on the page, finding an unlikely and sometimes unwanted ally in Kathleen. As they unlock the secrets to Bridget's life, and her link to theirs, they learn that their present day fears and frustrations are more timeless than they seem, and that solace can come from unlikely sources.
