May 16th - WOW post

Joining Jill at Breaking the Spine for her weekly Wednesday Meme.. Waiting on Wednesday were we post the books that we are patiently or not so patiently looking for at the library or at the store. Guess what?? I am so excited my kids went together and got me a Kindle Fire for Mothers Day. I was so happy and I am just getting into using it. This week I have picked a book by a favorite author of mine, Luanne Rice that is coming out in a few weeks. Here is a little bit about it...
An emotionally gripping family drama from beloved New York Times bestseller Luanne Rice Clare Burke’s life took a devastating turn when she tried to protect her sister, Anne, from an abusive and controlling husband and ended up serving prison time for assault. The verdict largely hinged on Anne’s defense of her spouse—all lies—and the sisters have been estranged ever since. Nearly twenty years later, Clare is living a quiet life in Manhattan as an urban birder and nature blogger, when her niece, Grit, turns up on her doorstep. The two long for a relationship with each other, but they’ll have to dig deep into their family’s difficult past in order to build one. Together they face the wounds inflicted by Anne and find in their new connection a place of healing. When Clare begins to suspect her sister might be in New York, she and her niece hold out hope for a long-awaited reunion with her. A riveting story about women and the primal, tangled family ties that bind them together, Little Night marks a milestone for Luanne Rice—the thirtieth novel from the author with a talent for creating stories that are "exciting, emotional, terrific" (The New York Times Book Review).
