Waiting on Wednesday ~ Day For Night; Frederick Reiken

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.  What book are you waiting for to be released?  Here's my pick:

 Day For Night; Frederick Reiken
(April 26th ~ Reagan Arthur Books)
Book Description: 
 If you look hard enough into the history of anything, you will discover things that seem to be connected but are not." So claims a character in Frederick Reiken's wonderful, surprising novel, which seems in fact to be determined to prove just the opposite. How else to explain the threads that link a middle-aged woman on vacation in Florida with a rock and roll singer visiting her comatose brother in Utah, where he's been transported after a motorcycle injury in Israel, where he works with a man whose long-lost mother, in a retirement community in New Jersey, recognizes him in a televised report about an Israeli-Palestinian skirmish? And that's not the half of it.

In DAY FOR NIGHT, critically acclaimed writer Frederick Reiken spins an unlikely and yet utterly convincing story about people lost and found. They are all refugees from their own lives or history's cruelties, and yet they wind up linked to each other in compelling and unpredictable ways that will keep you guessing until the very end.

  7. Great pick Diane, I am hoping to get this one as well. The author is a professor at the College I work at, and I took his class back in the day. I'm really excited for his new novel.

    My WOW is at The Crowded Leaf.

  8. This one sounds completing confusing, but interesting! I'd be interested in seeing how the author pulls seemingly unconnected events together into a complete story.

  9. Sounds very interesting! It also reminds me a bit of the show Lost, with people being connected to one another in strange, but believable, ways!

    My WoW pick is here!
