"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?

Monica said...

I was lucky enough to get a ARC a few weeks ago. Cant wait to read it.

Unknown said...

This sounds incredibly realistic and heart-wrenching. Great choice, thanks for sharing!

My WoW

Rebecca said...

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)

Have a lovely day!

Louisse @ The Soul Sisters

Unknown said...

Nice pick. Thanks for sharing!

patty said...

Not something I would usually pick up but it sounds interesting.

Sounds like a tear-jerker, and a great choice for a snow day read. Nice pick. :)

See what I picked this week at Read. Sleep. Repeat.

The Readdicts said...

This seems like a book I'd like to read! It sounds enlightening and very interesting. :) Thanks for sharing!

Here's my Waiting On Wednesday post.

Happy reading!

Sarika @ The Readdicts

Patricia (Night Readings) said...

The Mothers sounds really interesting, though it's not a genre I usually read. :)

Happy Reading!

I have yet to read Gilmore's Something Red, but this one sounds really good.

Laurel-Rain Snow said...

Love the sound of this one! Thanks for sharing....

Kristen said...

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.

Grace

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

joyh82 said...

Great pick, sounds like a pretty emotional read. Have a Merry Christmas!

Unknown said...

This one sounds good, but potentially quite heart-breaking. I hope it's not too rough on the readers!

Henrietta @ Leisure Reads said...

This sounds quite heavy and emotional. Lovely choice, Jill!

My pick of the week is a YA novel on friendship. Come and visit me :)

Have a gorgeous Wednesday!

Alyssa said...

Nice choice! I've never heard of it! And I love some of these picks by the other bloggers! :)

Madigan Mirza said...

This looks very interesting. Thanks for pointing it out. I don't know if I want to read it just yet... I'm in the middle of trying to adopt myself!

bermudaonion said...

Oh, I bet that's good!

Danielle V. said...

Looks like an interesting read on a new topic for me. Thanks for sharing! :)

Great pick! Sounds like a wonderful, emotional story. Thanks for sharing!

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.
