"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Obituary Writer
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
The Obituary Writer
Publication Date: March 4
On the day John F. Kennedy is inaugurated, Claire, a young wife and mother obsessed with the glamour of Jackie, struggles over the decision of whether to stay in a loveless but secure marriage or to follow the man she loves and whose baby she may be carrying. Decades earlier, in 1919, Vivien Lowe, an obituary writer, is searching for her lover who disappeared in the Great San Francisco Earthquake of 1906. By telling the stories of the dead, Vivien not only helps others cope with their grief but also begins to understand the devastation of her own terrible loss. The surprising connection between these two women will change Claire’s life in unexpected and extraordinary ways.

My WoW is The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
I like the brief story of obituary writer. The short information indicates about the search of obituary records. I am very excited to know more about writer.
Great pick and the cover looks good.

This sounds like an interesting book - not only through its multi-generational storyline but also through the whole "pay it forward" idea of Vivien helping other people who are in grief.
What an interesting read!
