Waiting on Wednesday - So Far Away; Meg Mitchell Moore

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating! Want to participate? Post your own WOW entry on your blog, and leave your link at Breaking the Spine. My pick was released last week:


Reagan Arthur Books

Thirteen-year-old Natalie Gallagher is trying to escape: from her parents' ugly divorce, and from the vicious cyber-bullying of her former best friend. Kathleen Lynch is an archivist at a Boston library, a widow, estranged from her only daughter. Their very different lives are joined by a woman long-dead--Bridget O' Meara, who came to Boston in 1925 to work as a maid. When Natalie discovers Bridget's diary in her mother's attic, she embarks on a quest to learn more about the woman on the page, finding an unlikely and sometimes unwanted ally in Kathleen. As they unlock the secrets to Bridget's life, and her link to theirs, they learn that their present day fears and frustrations are more timeless than they seem, and that solace can come from unlikely sources.

The heartfelt storytelling that won Meg Mitchell Moore praise in her debut The Arrivals continues to shine in her page-turning new novel.

  6. I love this kind of story where the past's secrets lead characters to discover new things about themselves and others. I'm off to see if the library has it.
