Waiting on Wednesday: What I Remember Most
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine. The event spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.
This week, I am excited for the release of:
What I Remember Most
by Cathy Lamb
Release Date: August 26, 2014
Genre: General Fiction
In a new novel rich in grace, warmth, and courage, acclaimed author Cathy Lamb tells of one woman's journey of reinvention in the wake of deep betrayal.
Grenadine Scotch Wild has only vague memories of the parents she last saw when she was six years old. But she's never forgotten their final, panicked words to her, urging Grenadine to run. The mystery of their disappearance is just one more frayed strand in a life that has lately begun to unravel completely. One year into her rocky marriage to Covey, a well known investor, he's arrested for fraud and embezzlement. And Grenadine, now a successful collage artist and painter, is facing jail time despite her innocence.
With Covey refusing to exonerate her unless she comes back to him, Grenadine once again takes the advice given to her so long ago: she runs. Hiding out in a mountain town in central Oregon until the trial, she finds work as a bartender and as assistant to a furniture-maker who is busy rebuilding his own life. But even far from everything she knew, Grenadine is granted a rare chance, as potentially liberating as it is terrifying--to face down her past, her fears, and live a life as beautiful and colorful as one of her paintings. . .
I'm a big fan of Cathy Lamb's books! I discovered her while looking for authors who live in my home state of Oregon, and came across The Last Time I Was Me...and I was hooked! Working my way through all her books, and excited to see that she has a new book due out later this summer!
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
