Waiting on Wednesday #84

*NOTE: Hi guys! I hope you've all been doing well and reading lots of books. 
Before I start the Waiting on Wednesday post scheduled for today, I have an apology to make to you and most importantly to Janhvi. 

Yesterday, I was so caught up in my studies and working on my presentation for today (which went pretty well) that I forgot to post a Top Ten Tuesday. I feel horrible about it and thought of compiling the Tuesday and Wednesday posts but it doesn't really make any sense to post Top Ten Tuesday on Wednesday.

Anyway, I'm sorry and now that that's done, let's get on to the book I'm waiting for and let's hope I don't ever, in my life, forget to post!

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

A Long Time Gone by Karen White
Publication Date- June 3rd 2014


Goodreads Summary: 

"We Walker women were born screaming into this world, the beginning of a lifelong quest to find what would quiet us. But whatever drove us away was never stronger than the pull of what brought us back...." 
 
When Vivien Walker left her home in the Mississippi Delta, she swore never to go back, as generations of the women in her family had. But in the spring, nine years to the day since she’d left, that’s exactly what happens—Vivien returns, fleeing from a broken marriage and her lost dreams for children.
 
What she hopes to find is solace with "Bootsie," her dear grandmother who raised her, a Walker woman with a knack for making everything all right. But instead she finds that her grandmother has died and that her estranged mother is drifting further away from her memories. Now Vivien is forced into the unexpected role of caretaker, challenging her personal quest to find the girl she herself once was.
 
But for Vivien things change in ways she cannot imagine when a violent storm reveals the remains of a long-dead woman buried near the Walker home, not far from the cypress swamp that is soon to give up its ghosts. Vivien knows there is now only one way to rediscover herself—by uncovering the secrets of her family and breaking the cycle of loss that has haunted her them for generations. 

This book sounds highly interesting and I hope I can get to read it once it's out. 

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
