Waiting on Wednesday (13)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It is designed to showcase books that are about to release that we just can't wait to get out hands on...

My choice this week is: In the Company of Others (Father Tim series - Book 2) by Jan Karon releasing October 19th.

I am a big Jan Karon fan and I've really been looking forward to this one...

Synopsis (Courtesy of Barnes & Noble):

A stirring page-turner from the bestselling author of the Mitford series.

Jan Karon's new series, launched with her New York Times bestselling, Home to Holly Springs, thrilled legions of Mitford devotees, and also attracted a whole new set of readers. "Lovely," said USA Today. "Rejoice!," said The Washington Post.

In this second novel, Father Tim and Cynthia arrive in the west of Ireland, intent on researching his Kavanagh ancestry from the comfort of a charming fishing lodge. The charm, however, is broken entirely when Cynthia startles a burglar and sprains her already-injured ankle. Then a cherished and valuable painting is stolen from the lodge owners, and Cynthia's pain pales in comparison to the wound at the center of this bitterly estranged Irish family.

In the Company of Others is a moving testament to desperate struggle to hide the truth at any cost and the powerful need to confess. Of all her winning novels, Jan Karon says this "dark-haired child" is her favorite - a sentiment readers everywhere are certain to share.

Haven't read any of her books but I have heard good things about them. said...

I think one of the most difficult waits is for a second book in a series. You know you loved the first, and are dying for what happens next. Happy reading :)
