HUMP DAY POTPOURRI: WAITING ON WEDNESDAY — TUMBLEWEEDS — JUNE 20

Welcome to another Hump Day Potpourri, celebrating Waiting on Wednesday.  To join in and find out what exciting upcoming books are out there, click on the link for Breaking the Spine.

Today I’m excited about a book that’s not coming out until 2/5/13, but I’ve been seeing this one around the blogosphere.  Tumbleweeds, by Leila Meacham, follows three friends through their growing up years until their high school graduations when several tragic events uproot and break them apart;  the novel expands to follow their careers and futures until they reunite in Kersey at forty years of age. Told with all of Meacham’s signature drama, unforgettable characters, and plot twists, readers will be turning the pages, desperate to learn how it all plays out.

Recently orphaned, eleven-year-old Cathy Benson feels she has been dropped into a cultural and intellectual wasteland when she is forced to move from her academically privileged life in California to the small town of Kersey in the Texas Panhandle where the sport of football reigns supreme. She is quickly taken under the unlikely wings of up-and-coming gridiron stars and classmates John Caldwell and Trey Don Hall, orphans like herself, with whom she forms a friendship and eventual love triangle that will determine the course of the rest of their lives.
