Waiting on Wednesday - July 7th


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly Meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine . This a chance for us to share what new releases we are looking forward to.

My choice this week is The Distant Hours by Kate Morton to be released on November 9, 2010 by Simon & Schuster.
I've read and enjoyed both of her previous books, The House at Riverton and The Forgotten Garden
Kate Morton has a wonderful knack for creating a setting that instantly transports the reader into the world of her characters. The books almost have a fairy tale like feel to them despite not being fairy tales at all. Maybe it's the quintessential creepy castle-like home in the books, or the eccentric characters found in the story. Regardless, the author is a talented story-spinner and I look forward to her future endeavors.

I got the Forgotten Garden from the ALA midwinter in Boston and it was probably my most treasured acquisition.
