"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Tin Horse
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
The Tin Horse
Publication Date: January 29
It has been more than 60 years since Elaine Greenstein’s twin sister, Barbara, ran away, cutting off contact with her family forever. Elaine has made peace with that loss. But while sifting through old papers as she prepares to move to Rancho Mañana—or the “Ranch of No Tomorrow” as she refers to the retirement community—she is stunned to find a possible hint to Barbara’s whereabouts all these years later. And it pushes her to confront the fierce love and bitter rivalry of their youth during the 1920s and ’30s, in the Jewish neighborhood of Boyle Heights, Los Angeles.
In the stunning tradition of Lisa See, Maeve Binchy, and Alice Hoffman, The Tin Horse is a rich multi-generational story about the intense, often fraught bond sisters share and the dreams and sorrows that lay at the heart of the immigrant experience.
