WoW [113]

Waiting on Wednesday [WoW] is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

 The Sound of Glass by Karen White
Expected Publication: May 12, 2015
Publisher: NAL

It has been two years since the death of Merritt Heyward’s husband, Cal, when she receives unexpected news—Cal’s family home in Beaufort, South Carolina, bequeathed by Cal’s reclusive grandmother, now belongs to Merritt.

Charting the course of an uncertain life—and feeling guilt from her husband’s tragic death—Merritt travels from her home in Maine to Beaufort, where the secrets of Cal’s unspoken-of past reside among the pluff mud and jasmine of the ancestral Heyward home on the Bluff. This unknown legacy, now Merritt’s, will change and define her as she navigates her new life—a new life complicated by the arrival of her too young stepmother and ten-year-old half-brother.

Soon, in this house of strangers, Merritt is forced into unraveling the Heyward family past as she faces her own fears and finds the healing she needs in the salt air of the Low Country.

Why I Can’t Wait
I love Karen White’s books and this one sounds really good! I love a Southern read and I feel this one has a hint of secrets and mystery definitely one I’m intrigue by.

Feel free to link me to yours.


  1. I like the sounds of this one. And, I'll confess, I have meant to read several books by Karen White and have yet to read any of them. Shame! Keeping this one in mind. Which of her books is your favorite?

  2. I'm looking forward to this as well - I loved the Tradd Street series!

  3. I haven't read any of White's books yet but I'm always into a good mystery! Like you mentioned, I'm feeling the Southern vibe and adding this to the TBR!
