Waiting on Wednesday: Now and Then

Hosted by Jill, at Breaking the Spine, Here's my pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection:

Now & Then
Author: Jacqueline Sheehan
Pub. Date: June 23rd
From Amazon:Product Description

Living a dog's and then

Anna O'Shea has failed at marriage, shed her job at a law firm, and she's trying to re-create herself when she and her recalcitrant nephew are summoned to the past in a manner that nearly destroys them. Her twenty-first-century skills pale as she struggles to find her nephew in nineteenth-century Ireland. For one of them, the past is brutally difficult, filled with hunger and struggle. For the other, the past is filled with privilege, status, and a reprieve from the crushing pain of present-day life. For both Anna and her nephew, the past offers them a chance at love.

Will every choice they make reverberate down through time? And do Irish Wolfhounds carry the soul of the ancient celts?

The past and present wrap around finely wrought characters who reveal the road home. Mystical, charming, and fantastic, New York Times bestselling author Jacqueline Sheehan's Now & Then is a poignant and beautiful tale of a remarkable journey. It is a miraculous evocation of a breathtaking place in a volatile age filled with rich, unforgettable, deeply human characters and one unforgettable dog named Madigan.

I LOVED Lost & Found by this author when I read it so can't wait to see if this one is just as good.

What's your W.O.W pick; Please share your link.


  1. I'd want to read that one just because the dog on the cover is so cute!

  2. I had to read that twice before I got what was going on, ha! I love time travel books though, so I'll be on the lookout for reviews of this.

  3. I'm adding this one to my list! It sounds great and the cover is cute.

  4. This sounds really good, thanks for sharing - it's another one to go on my want list.
