Welcome to another Hump Day Potpourri. Today’s event is Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill, at Breaking the Spine. Here is our special place for shouting out about upcoming releases we are excited about.
I have been a fan of Barbara Taylor Bradford’s books for several years, and even though a couple of her more recent books were not my favorites, I have high hopes for Secrets from the Past, due out in April 2013.
At thirty, American photojournalist Serena Stone has already made a name for herself with her unique and dramatic coverage of wars in the Middle East, following in her famous father’s footsteps. But after his unexpected death in France, she has left her job at the renowned photo news agency that he founded, weary of years of dodging bullets and exploding landmines. Leaving the front lines behind, Serena returns to New York where she starts work on a biography of her celebrated father. When Serena discovers that her former lover Zachary North is in trouble overseas, she’s forced to leave the safety of her new life, and head back to a place she was trying to escape…and her life will never be the same again. She brings Zac back to health, first in the agency’s bolthole in Venice, and later at her family home in France. It is there that she discovers a shocking secret in the huge photographic archive of her late father’s work. It is a secret that will propel her back to war-torn Libya, risking her life looking for clues that she hopes will piece together the mystery surrounding her parents’ marriage and the part of their life together she never knew about.
Well-kept secrets, passionate love, obsession, betrayal, redemption, and the power of the past to control the future propel this new novel from The New York Times bestselling author Barbara Taylor Bradford.
