Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
And what am I eagerly awaiting? Despite the fact that my bookshelves (plus attic and various boxes under my bed) are bulging to the seams, and my Kindle is full of freebies and review books, there are so many 2012 releases that I can't wait for. Here's one of them:
AUTHOR: TRICIA GOYER
SERIES: BIG SKY #3
PUBLISHER: B & H
PUBLICATION DATE: APRIL 1, 2012
After an extended stay in Montana, where Amish traditions are different than in her home state, Marianna Sommer returns to Indiana for two reasons, first to help her brother and his girlfriend prepare for a baby and their wedding. Second, to plan her own wedding to Aaron Zook — a marriage she’s been dreaming about ever since childhood. And yet, although she had missed the idyllic farms and families of her upbringing, Marianna is surprised that Indiana is somehow making her long now for Montana.
As months pass, secrets that were hidden in winter’s frozen grasp thaw and take on a life of their own. The truths about a child, about a past relationship, and about God’s plans are being revealed. Walking through a valley of questions, Marianna must hold on to hope as she decides where and with whom her heart truly belongs.
If you've not yet discovered this series from Tricia Goyer, start with Beside Still Waters immediately and I guarantee that you'll be as addicted to reading about Marianna's experiences in Montana as I am! I recently read the second book, Beyond Wooded Paths (so look out for a review soon!), which included an excerpt from the conclusion to the trilogy and I have to say, I am most intrigued to find out whether Aaron has some secrets he's been hiding from Marianna and how her brother and girlfriend manage with their upcoming wedding and baby. April 2012 is very, very far away though, so it'll be a while before I get the chance to read the final book in this compelling series.
What books are you looking forward to in the new year?
