Waiting on Wednesday: The Lost Hours

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:






The Lost Hours by Karen White


Publisher: Penguin Group


Available: April 7, 2009


The award-winning author of The Memory of Water delivers a gripping tale of family, fate, and forgiveness.


When Piper Mills was twelve, she helped her grandfather bury a box that belonged to her grandmother in the backyard. For twelve years, it remained untouched.


Now a near fatal riding accident has shattered Piper’s dreams of Olympic glory. After her grandfather’s death, she inherits the house and all its secrets, including a key to a room that doesn’t exist—or does it? And after her grandmother is sent away to a nursing home, she remembers the box buried in the backyard. In it are torn pages from a scrapbook, a charm necklace—and a newspaper article from 1929 about the body of an infant found floating in the Savannah River. The necklace’s charms tell the story of three friends during the 1920s— each charm added during the three months each friend had the necklace and recorded her life in the scrapbook. Piper always dismissed her grandmother as not having had a story to tell. And now, too late, Piper finds she might have been wrong.




What are you waiting for? Waiting on Wednesdays is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
