"Waiting On" Wednesday: In Sunlight and In Shadow
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
In Sunlight and In Shadow
Publication Date: October 2
New York in 1947 glows with post-war energy. Harry Copeland, an elite paratrooper who fought behind enemy lines in Europe, returns home to run the family business. In a single, magical encounter on the Staten Island ferry, the young singer and heiress Catherine Thomas Hale falls for him in an instant, too late to prevent her engagement to a much older man. Harry and Catherine pursue one another in a romance played out in postwar America's Broadway theaters, Long Island mansions, the offices of financiers, and the haunts of gangsters. Catherine's choice of Harry over her long-time fiancé endangers Harry’s livelihood and eventually threatens his life.

Oh my this one is very interesting. I wish Catherine and Harry all the best. The concept is very good and engaging.
The broadway part to it really draws me in. Sounds great!
I've not read anything by that author before. And the synopsis has me on the fence. I think this is one I'm going to wait to see how it's reviewed before I think about adding it to my tbr. But it's a good choice. (:
the cover is beautiful and it sounds really interesting. great pick!
I've heard some good things about Mark Helprin (and I think I have another one of his books on my tbr-list). I like the setting of this one in post-war NY-lots of excitement inherent there!
