Welcome to another edition of Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill, at Breaking the Spine.

Today I’m spotlighting a book that’s coming soon:  May 1, 2011.  Here, Home, Hope, by Kaira Rouda, is all about finding happiness in yourself.

Kelly Mills Johnson becomes restless in her thirty-ninth year. An appetite for more forces her to take stock of her middling middle-American existence and her neighbors’ seemingly perfect lives. Her marriage to a successful attorney has settled into a comfortable routine, and being the mother of two adorable sons has been rewarding. But Kelly’s own passions lie wasted. She eyes with envy the lives of her two best friends, Kathryn and Charlotte, both beautiful, successful businesswomen who seem to have it all. Kelly takes charge of her life, devising a midlife makeover plan.

From page one, Kelly’s witty reflections, self-deprecating humor, and clever tactics in executing that plan–she places Post-it notes all over her house and car–will have readers laughing out loud. The next instant, however, they might rant right along with Kelly as her commitment to a sullen, anorexic teenager left on her doorstep tries her patience or as she deflects the boozy advances of a divorced neighbor. Readers will need to keep the tissue box handy, too, as Kelly repairs the damage she inflicted on a high school friend; realizes how deeply her husband, Patrick, understands and loves her; and ultimately grows into a woman empowered by her own blend of home and career….

What delightful new books are you eagerly awaiting?  Please stop by and share….

  2. Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog!
    The cover picture on my blog is from the UK publisher, maybe you have seen the American on the other blog, I think it’s a dark brown house…

    Your pick sounds really good. I’ll keep it in mind when looking for a summer read 🙂 Thank you.
