"Waiting On" Wednesday: Absalom's Daughters

"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:

Absalom's Daughters
By Suzanne Feldman

Publication Date: July 5

From Amazon:

Self-educated and brown skinned, Cassie works full time in her grandmother’s laundry in rural Mississippi. Illiterate and white, Judith falls for “colored music” and dreams of life as a big city radio star. These teenaged girls are half-sisters. And when they catch wind of their wayward father’s inheritance coming down in Virginia, they hitch their hopes to a road trip together to claim what’s rightly theirs. In an old junk car, with a frying pan, a ham, and a few dollars hidden in a shoe, they set off through the American Deep South of the 1950s, a bewitchingly beautiful landscape as well as one bedeviled by racial striving and violence. 

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

That sounds like it could be really fascinating!

I love the look and sound of this one! 1950s Deep South would be frightening for these two. Thanks for sharing.

Laura said...

I agree with Laurel-Rain. It would definitely be a scary time for the both of them. I hope you enjoy it!
