"Waiting On" Wednesday: Tigers in Red Weather
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Tigers in Red Weather
Publication Date: July 17
Nick and her cousin, Helena, have grown up sharing sultry summer heat, sunbleached boat docks, and midnight gin parties on Martha's Vineyard in a glorious old family estate known as Tiger House. In the days following the end of the Second World War, the world seems to offer itself up, and the two women are on the cusp of their 'real lives': Helena is off to Hollywood and a new marriage, while Nick is heading for a reunion with her own young husband, Hughes, about to return from the war.
Soon the gilt begins to crack. Helena's husband is not the man he seemed to be, and Hughes has returned from the war distant, his inner light curtained over. On the brink of the 1960s, back at Tiger House, Nick and Helena--with their children, Daisy and Ed--try to recapture that sense of possibility. But when Daisy and Ed discover the victim of a brutal murder, the intrusion of violence causes everything to unravel. The members of the family spin out of their prescribed orbits, secrets come to light, and nothing about their lives will ever be the same.

I love books set during World War II....I also love multigenerational books - definitely one to add to my list.
This one sounds really, really good...thanks for sharing.
Although not the same era, it sounds like you're a fan of F. Scott Fitzgerald (maybe?). That was what first came to mind when I read the synopsis. Absolutely striking cover!

I started thinking of Fitzgerald while reading through the synopsis too. Wonder if the author is just a fan or if there is a deeper significance. Nice pick.
