Welcome to our weekly bookish event, Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill, at Breaking the Spine.

For those of us who are eagerly awaiting upcoming releases, Wednesdays are the chance to visit other blogs and find even more books to add to our lists.

Today I’ve selected a book from an author I’ve come to enjoy so much:  Amy Hatvany, whose newest release, The Language of Sisters, will be coming on 7/31/12.

A poignant novel about going home again—and how the most complex relationships can yield the most rewarding surprises.Ten years ago, Nicole Hunter left her troubled past behind her, unable to cope with the demands of a life with her disabled sister, Jenny. Though her search for happiness—both in career and love—has fallen short of her dreams, Nicole pretends that all is well. Then a shattering event turns her world upside down, and suddenly, she is back in her hometown, caring for her pregnant sister and trying to heal her embattled relationship with her mother.

Reunited with her family and forced to confront the guilt that haunts her, Nicole finally has the chance to be the sister she always wished she’d been. And when she is faced with the most difficult choice of her life, Nicole rediscovers the beauty of sisterhood—and receives a special gift that will change her life forever.


I  love the cover, the blurb, and every book this author has brought out so far.  Now…I’m off to see what the rest of you have discovered!


  1. I’ve never read anything by this author, but the subject matter hits very close to home for me. Great pick!

    Thanks for sharing & for stopping by my WoW post. Happy Wednesday! 😀


  2. This looks great. I haven’t read Hatvany before but I do have her previous novel sitting here waiting for me. Now I feel like I should move it to the top of the stack so I can have it read before I jump all over this one. LOL!


    • I do enjoy books about sisters…and always wanted one, too. I finally got one…but she’s thirteen years younger than I, so I was out of the house before she was very old.

      Thanks for stopping by, Jay…and enjoy your picks.


  3. haven’t heard of this one before, but it sounds like a teary -jerker better have a box of tissues handy!

    Thanks for stopping by my WOW!



    • Oh, June, I got an abscessed tooth toward the weekend and everything had to go by the wayside…but I’m feeling better now. Maybe this weekend.

      Thanks for stopping by, and this author wrote two other books I’ve enjoyed: Best Kept Secret and Outside the Lines.


Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
