Welcome to another Hump Day Potpourri, featuring Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill, at Breaking the Spine.

Today I’m excited by an upcoming book from one of my favorite authors, Karen White.  After the Rain will be released around December 31, 2012.

From “one of the best new writers on the scene today” (The Huffington Post) comes the sequel to Falling Home, a novel set in the picaresque town of Walton, Georgia, where one woman is about to discover that the best journey is the one that brings you home.…

Freelance photographer Suzanne Paris has been on her own since she was fourteen—and she has no intention of settling down, especially not in a tiny town like Walton, Georgia. She’s here to hide out for a little while, not to form connections. Her survival depends on her ability to slip in and out of people’s lives, on never staying in one place for too long.

But no one in Walton plans on making things easy for Suzanne. For one thing, it’s a town where everyone knows everyone else—and they all seem intent on making Suzanne feel right at home. For another, Suzanne can’t help but feel drawn to this tight-knit community—or to the town’s mayor, Joe Warner, and his six kids. But Suzanne can’t afford to stick around, even if she’s finally found a place where she belongs. Because someone is looking for her—someone who won’t stop until her life is destroyed…


I can’t wait, so I have preordered it.  Just so I’ll get it as soon as possible.  What are you waiting for?


  1. Hmm…quite intriguing. It also makes me think of my grandma’s little town where everyone knows everyone, which also happens to be in Georgia! Great pick, thanks for stopping by!


    • The first one of hers I read was a year or so ago, when The House on Tradd Street showed up on someone’s blog and I ordered it. From then on, I had to read everything she wrote. I have done interviews of her on Curl up and Read….and read review books from Amazon Vine, too.

      I think you would enjoy them, Patty. Thanks for stopping by.
