"Waiting On" Wednesday: The World Without You
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
The World Without You
Publication Date: June 19
It's July 4th, and the Frankel family is descending upon their beloved summer home in the Berkshires. But this is no ordinary holiday; the family is gathering for a memorial. Leo, the youngest of the four Frankel siblings and an intrepid journalist and adventurer, was killed one year ago while on assignment in Iraq. His parents, Marilyn and David, are adrift in grief, and it's tearing apart their 40-year marriage. Clarissa, the eldest, is struggling at 39 with infertility. Lily, a fiery-tempered lawyer, is angry about everything. Noelle, a born-again Orthodox Jew (and the last person to see Leo alive), has come in from Israel with her husband and four children and feels entirely out of place. And Thisbe--Leo's widow and mother of their three-year-old son--has arrived from California bearing her own secret. Over the course of three days, the Frankels will contend with sibling rivalries and marital feuds, volatile women and silent men, and, ultimately, with the true meaning of family.
