Waiting on Wednesday is an event hosted every, you guessed it – Wednesday to spotlight new releases that we are anxiously awaiting publication. I discovered this link-up last week through Alabama Women Bloggers network. I’m so excited to have found another Alabama blogger who loves to read.
I wanted to participate this week in particular because I have been so excited about Emily Giffin’s new novel releasing May 20th! I have read all of her books and I am so ready for this new one to come out. If you recall, it is also on my 2014 must read list!
The One and Only by Emily Giffin
Goodreads Synopsis: Thirty-three-year-old Shea Rigsby has spent her entire life in Walker, Texas—a small college town that lives and dies by football, a passion she unabashedly shares. Raised alongside her best friend, Lucy, the daughter of Walker’s legendary head coach, Clive Carr, Shea was too devoted to her hometown team to leave. Instead she stayed in Walker for college, even taking a job in the university athletic department after graduation, where she has remained for more than a decade.
But when an unexpected tragedy strikes the tight-knit Walker community, Shea’s comfortable world is upended, and she begins to wonder if the life she’s chosen is really enough for her. As she finally gives up her safety net to set out on an unexpected path, Shea discovers unsettling truths about the people and things she has always trusted most—and is forced to confront her deepest desires, fears, and secrets.
Thoughtful, funny, and brilliantly observed, The One & Only is a luminous novel about finding your passion, following your heart, and, most of all, believing in something bigger than yourself . . . the one and only thing that truly makes life worth living.
