I'm a little late to join the "Waiting on Wednesday" Party, but I'm crashing it anyway! Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature on Breaking the Spine blog where readers highlight books they are anxious to read.
My first WoW will feature The Same Sky by Amanda Eyre Ward, which is coming out NEXT TUESDAY! Whoop Whoop!
Goodreads description: In this heartrending and
poignant novel, award-winning author Amanda Eyre Ward tells the story
of Alice Conroe, a forty year old Texas barbecue owner who has the
perfect life, except she and her husband long for a child. Unable to
conceive, she’s trying desperately to adopt but her destiny is quickly
altered by a young woman she’s never met.
thirteen-year-old Carla Trujilio is being raised by her grandmother in
Honduras along with her four year old twin brothers. Her mother is
sending money home from Texas where she’s trying to make a better life
for her family, but she only has enough to bring one son to her. When
Carla’s grandmother dies, Carla decides to take her fate into her own
hands and embarks on a dangerous journey across the border with Junior,
the twin left behind.
Two powerful journeys intersecting at a
pivotal moment in time: Alice and Carla’s lives will be forever and
profoundly changed. Heartbreaking, emotional, and arresting, this novel
is about finding the courage to trail blaze your own path in life with
faith, hope and love, no matter the struggle or the tragedy.
