Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week my pick is a book I will be reading for a special Mother’s Day event in May on my blog so keep an eye out for it! It’ll be great! It is The Threadbare Heart by Jennie Nash to be released May 4, 2010 by Berkley Books. Here’s a bit about it from Jennie Nash’s website:
The Threadbare Heart is a love story inspired by my mother’s recent marriage to a man she met on the same blind date where she met my dad, 54 years ago. It’s a mother-daughter story, as well. Readers of my last book, The Only True Genius in the Family, won’t be surprised to hear that the mother-daughter relationship is fraught with jealousy and tension. This time, however, I really amped it up. At the same time that a daughter loses the great love of her life, her mother — a woman in her mid-70s — gains the great love of her own. In the midst of all this, a prized piece of fabric, which the daughter has been saving for more than 40 years, is the last thing saved from a house destroyed by wildfire. That piece of fabric becomes the bridge between a mother and a daughter torn apart by grief, jealousy and misunderstanding. — Jennie Nash
I think it sounds fantastic! I really enjoyed The Only True Genius in the Family and I’m looking forward to escaping into another of Jennie’s novels. What about you – what are you waiting for this week?
