Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It features books that readers can’t wait to get their hands on. This week’s pre-publication can’t wait to read selection is:
Faithful by Alice Hoffman
Growing up on Long Island, Shelby Richmond is an ordinary girl until one night an extraordinary tragedy changes her fate. Her best friend’s future is destroyed in an accident, while Shelby walks away with the burden of guilt.
What happens when a life is turned inside out? When love is something so distant it may as well be a star in the sky? Faithful is the story of a survivor, filled with emotion—from dark suffering to true happiness—a moving portrait of a young woman finding her way in the modern world. A fan of Chinese food, dogs, bookstores, and men she should stay away from, Shelby has to fight her way back to her own future. In New York City she finds a circle of lost and found souls—including an angel who’s been watching over her ever since that fateful icy night.
This title will be released on November 1.
Why am I excited for this title? One of my favorite books is one of Alice Hoffman’s early novels called Blue Diary. Her newest sounds like a great story and has gotten great reviews so far.
