Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  It is where we share what un-released books we are eagerly anticipating.

My choice this week is:  The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta
Release Date: March 8, 2011
From Amazon: award-winning author Melina Marchetta reopens the story of the group of friends from her acclaimed novel Saving Francesca - but five years have passed, and now it’s Thomas Mackee who needs saving. After his favorite uncle was blown to bits on his way to work in a foreign city, Tom watched his family implode. He quit school and turned his back on his music and everyone that mattered, including the girl he can’t forget. Shooting for oblivion, he’s hit rock bottom, forced to live with his single, pregnant aunt, work at the Union pub with his former friends, and reckon with his grieving, alcoholic father. Tom’s in no shape to mend what’s broken. But what if no one else is either? An unflinching look at family, forgiveness, and the fierce inner workings of love and friendship, The Piper’s Son redefines what it means to go home again.
What are YOU waiting for?

  3. Sounds like a good one, I hadn't heard of it. Great pick!

  4. Oh I cannot wait for this one either. I first saw it on Inkcrush where Nomes raved about it. I do like the Aussie cover better though!


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
