Waiting On Wednesday (7-6-11)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jen at Breaking the Spine. Each week, you highlight an upcoming release that you are looking forward to! It's a great way to connect with other bloggers and add even more books to your TBR pile! This week's pick: Burnt Mountain by Anne Rivers Siddons (expected release date: July 19, 2011).

Synopsis (from Growing up, the only place tomboy Thayer Wentworth felt at home was at her summer camp - Camp Sherwood Forest in the North Carolina Mountains. It was there that she came alive and where she met Nick Abrams, her first love...and first heartbreak.
Years later, Thayer marries Aengus, an Irish professor, and they move into her deceased grandmother's house in Atlanta, only miles from Camp Edgewood on Burnt Mountain where her father died years ago in a car accident. There, Aengus and Thayer lead quiet and happy lives until Aengus is invited up to the camp to tell old Irish tales to the campers. As Aengus spends less time at home and becomes more distant, Thayer must confront dark secrets-about her mother, her first love, and, most devastating of all, her husband.

So, what are you waiting on this Wednesday?


  1. I've been waiting forever on this (originally scheduled for last summer, I believe) of my all-time favorite authors!

  2. I'm very much looking forward to this one. Anne Rivers Siddons is a favorite author of mine and it's been a while since we've gotten a new one from her. Very nice pick!
