Welcome to Hump Day Potpourri.…and time to share news about upcoming releases.  Click on over to Breaking the Spine to find out what others are awaiting.

Today I’m sharing about a book coming on November 12, 2013:  The Runaway Wife, by Rowan Coleman.  A writer I discovered after I started blogging, and one I love reading.


From the internationally bestselling author of Lessons in Laughing Out Loud comes a moving and heartwarming novel about a woman who escapes an abusive relationship and flees with her young daughter in search of a kind stranger she met many years earlier.Remembering the letter that says, “You are a remarkable woman and you deserve all the happiness, contentment, and love in the world. I, for one, know that I have never met anyone quite like you,” Rose Pritchard turns up on the doorstep of a B&B in England’s lake district. It is her last resort, as she and her seven-year-old daughter Maddie have left everything behind. They have come to the village of Millthwaite in search of the person who once offered Rose hope.

Almost immediately Rose wonders if she’s made a terrible mistake—if she’s chasing a dream—but she knows in her heart that she cannot go back. She’s been given a second chance—at life, and love—but will she have the courage to take it?

Blending wit, insight, and emotion with a sensitive touch and a warm dose of humor, Rowan Coleman has crafted a poignant novel that will linger with you long after the final page has been turned.


Yes, this book has all the ingredients I enjoy the most:  family issues, relationships, second chances, and lovely settings.  What are you sharing today?


  1. Wow I shall add this to my wish list – I love novels set in the English Lake District (it’s the names!), but there are so few of them about. I’m thinking the stranger was a woman and there won’t be any romance, but that’s okay. I don’t always have to read romances, just most of the time! 🙂 Cool pick!
