Waiting on Wednesday



Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
Coming Up For Air by Patti Callahan Henry

August 16, 2011





Product Description taken from Amazon:

On the coast of Alabama, there is a house cloaked in mystery, a place that reveals the truth and changes lives...Ellie is in a dying marriage. She knows this. After her controlling mother, Lillian, passes away, Ellie's world is turned upside down when she discovers that her ex-boyfriend, Hutch, is in charge of a documentary that involved Lillian before her death. When Hutch shows up at her mother's funeral, Ellie's closed heart opens to the past. Fighting their feelings, Ellie and Hutch set out together to dig into Lillian's history. Using both a diary Ellie finds and a trip to the Summer House, a mysterious and seductive bayside home, Hutch and Ellie gamble that they can work together and not fall in love again. But in piecing together Lillian's unrequited-love story, they just might uncover the secrets in their own hearts. In her debut with "St. Martin's Press", Patti Callahan Henry shines as a true tour de force. Praised over and over for her lyricism and uncanny ability to transport readers to other places and times, she has outdone herself with this heart-whispering breakout.

We have the same WoW pick this week :) Have you read any of her other books? I read Driftwood Summer a few years ago and really enjoyed it. I've been meaning to pick up her other books since but never got around to it.

I've seen books by this author but I've never read anything of hers. Love novels set in the South, so I need to check it out!
