Waiting on Wednesday



Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.



This week's pick is Healer by Carol Cassella. Cassella's first novel, Oxygen, came out in 2008 and was wonderful and suspense filled.



I can't find much information about Healer yet, aside from this quote. It is set to be released on September 7, 2010.


“A deeply powerful story about the intricate intersection of marriage, motherhood, and career. Clear-eyed and compassionate, Carol Cassella takes her readers on the roller-coaster ride of a marriage and family shaken by financial upheaval.”
-- Erica Bauermeister, author of The School of Essential Ingredients


I just know that Oxygen was one of my favorite books of 2008, and I am anxious to read another book by Cassella.





The other book I am anxious to see this fall is a kids book -
Olivia Goes to Venice by Ian Falconer. My kids at school (and my kids at home) absolutely love Olivia, and it's about time for another adventure! This one is due out September 28, 2010.

Healer sounds like it might be quite interesting, even though I have never even heard of this author.
