Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted here, which spotlights new books we are anticipating.
This week I'm waiting on the second book by Leila Meacham. Her first book, Roses was an excellent story and I fell in love with the characters. I'm eagerly anticipating her new novel, set to hit stores June 19.
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Recently orphaned, eleven-year-old Cathy Benson moves to the small town of Kersey in the Texas Panhadle, a community that lives and dies by its Friday night football games. She is quickly befriended by classmates John Caldwell and Trey Don Hall, up-and-coming gridiron stars with whom she forges a bond that will determine the course of their lives. Set initially against the delirium of Texas high school. football, teenage love, and a tragic event that shadows the boys into adulthood, the novel expands to follow the careers and lives of the three friends, uprooted from one another since graduation, until they reunite in Kersey at forty years of age. With all of Meacham's signature drama, unforgettable characters, and plot twists, readers will be turning the pages, desperate to learn how it all plays out
