Waiting on Wednesday (#26): The Major's Daughter


I'm cheating a little bit here because I recently received an ARC of this book, but it sounds so incredibly good I just had to share my excitement for this upcoming title:

Expected publication: July 29, 2014

Publisher's Overview:
"April, 1944. The quiet rural village of Stark, New Hampshire is irrevocably changed by the arrival of 150 German prisoners of war. And one family, unexpectedly divided, must choose between love and country.
Camp Stark is under the command of Major John Brennan, whose beautiful daughter, Collie, will serve as translator. Educated at Smith and devoted to her widowed father, Collie is immediately drawn to Private August Wahrlich, a peaceful poet jaded by war. As international conflict looms on the home front, their passion blinds them to the inevitable dangers ahead.
Inspired by the little-known existence of a real World War II POW camp, The Major’s Daughter is a fresh take on the timeless theme of forbidden love."

Seriously, how good does that sound?! And bonus points for being a debut novel. As much as I enjoy exploring new-to-me authors' backlists (when I have the time), I really love finding a brand new author and following them from the beginning. This is especially true when the debut is a stand-alone, rather than a first-in-a-series where the wait for the next installment can be torturous. Here's hoping this one lives up to expectations!

    1. Thanks Kay! I feel like I should read some other review books with sooner (or already passed) pub dates, but this one is calling my name. Very loudly. :)
