Waiting on Wednesday (4-27-11)

Happy Wednesday! Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It's a way to highlight upcoming book releases and connect with other bloggers. My pick this week is 22 Britannia Road by Amanda Hodgkinson (release date: April 28, 2011 ... which is tomorrow).

By the end of World War II, Silvana is a ghost of the wife Janusz once had. She and their 7-year-old son Aurek travel from Poland to England to reunite their family--a family that has been separated for 6 years. That's where 22 Britannia Road, Amanda Hodgkinson's stunning debut novel, begins. As the past unfolds from multiple points of view, it becomes clear that despite their determination to make a fresh start, the hidden secrets of the past threaten to destroy Silvana and Janusz's dreams of becoming a family once again. The irreversible events that passed during their years of separation still linger, including the horrors of war, Janusz's betrayal by a love affair with another woman, and the devastating secret that Silvana will do anything to conceal. Hodgkinson's poetic voice is impossible to forget, and the shocking and hopeful ending of her remarkable historical novel will leave readers reeling--and satisfied. (from
