"Waiting On" Wednesday: The End of the Point
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
The End of the Point
Publication Date: March 5
From author's website:
A place out of time, Ashaunt Point—a tiny finger of land jutting into Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts—has provided sanctuary and anchored life for generations of the Porter family, who summer along its remote, rocky shore. But in 1942, the U.S. Army arrives on the Point, bringing havoc and change. That summer, the two older Porter girls—teenagers Helen and Dossie—run wild. The children’s Scottish nurse, Bea, falls in love. And youngest daughter Janie is entangled in an incident that cuts the season short and haunts the family for years to come.
As the decades pass, Helen and then her son Charlie return to the Point, seeking refuge from the chaos of rapidly changing times. But Ashaunt is not entirely removed from events unfolding beyond its borders. Neither Charlie nor his mother can escape the long shadow of history—Vietnam, the bitterly disputed real estate development of the Point, economic misfortune, illness, and tragedy.

This sounds really great. I love books that are set in the past. Always fun to read about what the author is imagining.

This sounds like a really interesting read, so far, I am liking the setting and what the summary has hinted to. Will be adding this to my list too, thank you :)
The book seems like a really deep and emotional read. I wnder what happens to the other characters if only Helen and her son are mentioned in the later time period.
Great WOW pick. Definitely one for the list.
Great WoW pick!
