Waiting on Wednesday: The Splendor Falls

My first WoW post.  I probably won’t do this every week but there are a couple of books I’m really excited about.  Here’s one of them:

Splendor FallsThe Splendor Falls by Rosemary Clement-Moore

Can Love Last Beyond the Grave?

Sylvie Davis is a ballerina who can’t dance. A broken leg ended her career, but Sylvie’s pain runs deeper. What broke her heart was her father’s death, and what’s breaking her spirit is her mother’s remarriage—a union that’s only driven an even deeper wedge into their already tenuous relationship.

Uprooting her from her Manhattan apartment and shipping her to Alabama is her mother’s solution for Sylvie’s unhappiness. Her father’s cousin is restoring a family home in a town rich with her family’s history. And that’s where things start to get shady. As it turns out, her family has a lot more history than Sylvie ever knew. More unnerving, though, are the two guys that she can’t stop thinking about. Shawn Maddox, the resident golden boy, seems to be perfect in every way. But Rhys—a handsome, mysterious foreign guest of her cousin’s—has a hold on her that she doesn’t quite understand.

Then she starts seeing things. Sylvie’s lost nearly everything—is she starting to lose her mind as well?

I won’t have to wait too long.  The Splendor Falls will be out September 9, 2009 (9-9-09).

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  What are you waiting for?
