Waiting on Wednesday: New Sarah Jio Novel

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature of the Breaking the Spine blog.  It's a great way to share information about forthcoming books with other readers.

This week's anticipated book:
 Morning Glory: A Novel   
Publisher: Penguin Group (USA) 
Publication Date: November 26, 2013
From   New York Times bestselling author Sarah Jio imagines life on Boat Street, a floating community on Seattle’s Lake Union—home to people of artistic spirit who for decades protect the dark secret of one startling night in 1959.

Fleeing an East Coast life marred by tragedy, Ada Santorini takes up residence on houseboat number seven on Boat Street. She discovers a trunk left behind by Penny Wentworth, a young newlywed who lived on the boat half a century earlier. Ada longs to know her predecessor’s fate, but little suspects that Penny’s mysterious past and her own clouded future are destined to converge.
My thoughts:  After reading and enjoying two previous Sarah Jio novels, I am thrilled that it is less than a two-week wait until her fifth novel becomes available on November 26th.  In my previous reads, The Violets of March and The Last Camellia, Jio wove together stories from alternating time periods and introduced memorable casts of authentic characters.  In each case, I found myself captivated by the descriptive settings and totally immersed in the plots.  Ms. Jio has become one of my favorite authors, and I look forward to this new novel, as well as her other previous novels, The Bungalow and Blackberry Winter.
Enjoy life with books . . .
