"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Mothers

 "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

The Mothers
By Jennifer Gilmore
Publication Date: April 9

From Amazon:

Jesse and Ramon are a happy, loving couple but after years trying to get pregnant they turn to adoption, relieved to think that once they navigate the bureaucratic path to parenthood they will finally be able to bring a child into their family. But nothing prepared them for the labyrinthine process—for the many training sessions and approvals, for the ocean of advice, for the birthmothers who would contact them but not choose them, for the women who would call claiming that they had chosen Jesse and Ramon but weren’t really pregnant. All the while, husband and wife grapple with notions of race, class, culture, and changing family dynamics as they navigate the difficult, absurd, and often heart-breaking terrain of domestic open adoption.


What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

The Mothers sounds very heavy. I have a lot of adoption in my family so it would be interesting to read that subject from a story stance.

A Belle’s Tales said...

Really interesting pick! Thanks for sharing :D

Louisse A. said...

Cool pick!

Btw, sorry I had to repost my link. The first one I put up was wrong and broken. Thank you! (If possible, please delete entry number 17)

I have a friend who has waded through these waters once and is now dipping her toes in for another round. I can't imagine what she's gone through but maybe if I read this one, I would have a better idea.

Grace Fonseca said...

Interesting choice. You always find some interesting books.

JezzebellJC said...

That is such a great, interesting pick. Would definitely give insight into the process and the overall longing of some to become parents. Have a great WoW! Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven

Jen Greyson said...

That sounds really interesting -- and yet heartbreaking too.

Anonymous said...

LOVE the cover! There are so many books out there about life after adoption, but not many about how hard it is to actually adopt a child. Sounds like a great book!

Mel said...

This book sounds great, I can't wait to get my hands on it!

One Pushy Fox said...

What an emotionally charged topic! I bet it's a great read. Thanks for sharing!!!!

Watch the moment Barbados became a republic, and removed Queen Elizabeth II as its head of state.

In a handover ceremony in the island's capital, Bridgetown, the Queen was officially removed as its head of state.

The Prince of Wales attended the ceremony as a representative of the Queen, but also in his role as her successor as head of the Commonwealth.

Dame Sandra Mason has been sworn in as the first ever president of Barbados.
