Waiting on Wednesday

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

Here's what I'm looking forward to:

Title: The Proper Care and Maintenance of Friendship
Author: Lisa Verge Higgins
Pub. Date: January 26, 2011


Rachel Braun was the inspiration to her group of friends, the one who lived each day to the fullest - and the one whose life was cut tragically short. Upon her untimely death, Rachel left letters for her three best friends challenging them to face their biggest fears.

Sarah, an international relief worker, must travel half way around the world to track down the only man she ever loved. Stay-at-home mom Kate must confront her fear of heights by skydiving and soon finds that her new hobby is affecting her once-tranquil marriage. And Jo, a media mogul voted 'least likely to breed', is given the most terrifying assignment of all: caring for Rachel's orphaned and grieving little girl.

Even as these women mourn Rachel's passing, her legacy lives on and their lives are enriched by a friend who, in many ways, knew them better than they knew themselves.


  1. I like the sound of this one. I love reading growth novels. Very good pick!

  2. This one does look good, doesn't it?

  3. Sounds good. A diverse group of characters to keep things interesting. Great pick!
    My WOW

  4. This sounds good! Love books about friendship, but especially when faced by challenges.

    Here's mine:

  5. This sounds quite sad :-( but inspirational at the same time. I think the sky diving would be my biggest fear out of the three ;-)

  6. I love books about women friendships. This one's definitely going on my list!

  7. What a wonderfully touching story, not sure I could read it through the tears it would induce but like the premise a lot... Hope you get a copy Shon, January is coming fast!

    My WoW this week if you get a chance to stop by

    jackie >_<

  8. Aww seems like on of those heart-warming books.
