"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Pretty One
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
By Lucinda Rosenfeld
Publication Date: February 5
Perfect. Pretty. Political. For nearly 40 years, The Hellinger sisters of Hastings-on-Hudson--namely, Imperia (Perri), Olympia (Pia), and Augusta (Gus)--have played the roles set down by their loving but domineering mother Carol. Perri, a mother of three, rules her four-bedroom palace in Westchester with a velvet fist, managing to fold even fitted sheets into immaculate rectangles. Pia, a gorgeous and fashionable Chelsea art gallery worker, still turns heads after becoming a single mother via sperm donation. And Gus, a fiercely independent lawyer and activist, doesn't let her break-up from her girlfriend stop her from attending New Year's Day protests on her way to family brunch.
But the Hellinger women aren't pulling off their roles the way they once did. Each woman is unable to believe that anyone, especially her sisters, could understand what it's like to be her. But when a freak accident lands their mother to the hospital, a chain of events is set in motion that will send each Hellinger sister rocketing out of her comfort zone, leaving her to wonder: was this the role she was truly born to play?
What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

I like reading stories about sisters, but the description of this one makes it sound fraught with emotion and tension and... who knows what else! I'd probably want to read a chapter before committing to the whole thing.
Haven't heard of The Pretty One before but the synopsis sounds really good. Enjoy!
