September 5th

Wednesday is when I normally participate in Jill's - at Breaking the Spine- meme
                       on books that we are looking forward to reading as soon as they come out.
This week a friend of mine told me about a new book coming out and suggest we both read it at
the same time. It looks like a great choice and so I thought I would give a new author a try.
It comes out in October.

Book Description

Publication Date: October 30, 2012

Grace Barnum’s life is precariously balanced on sensible choices and uncomfortable compromise. She dutifully edits textbooks that, she fears, may be more harmful than helpful to kids. She is engaged to a patent attorney who is steady and reliable. She has a cautious relationship with her fascinating father, a renowned New York painter, and she prefers her mom slightly drunk.

Always a planner, Grace feels prepared for most eventualities. Until the responsibility-challenged Tyler Wilkie shows up. Fresh in town from the Poconos, Tyler has warm eyes, a country drawl, and a smile that makes Grace drop things. Worst of all, he writes devastating songs. About her.

Tyler reaches something in Grace, something she needs, but can't admit to. Something she wants, but won't succumb to. Tyler Wilkie loves Grace Barnum and ruins everything. And Grace grows.
