"Waiting On" Wednesday: Lydia's Party


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:


Lydia's Party
By Margaret Hawkins

Publication Date: January 23

From Amazon:

Lydia is having a party—it’s a party she hosts every year for six women friends who treasure the midwinter bash. Over a table laden with a feast of food and wine, the women revel in sharing newsy updates, simmering secrets, and laughter. As this particular evening unfolds, Lydia prepares to make a shattering announcement.

As we follow these friends through their party preparations, we meet flawed but lovable characters who are navigating the hassles of daily chores while also meditating in stolen moments on their lives, their regrets, their complicated relationships, and their deepest desires. When Lydia’s announcement shocks them all, they rediscover the enduring bonds of friendship and find their lives changing in unexpected ways.

Just read this one -- it's very good, but you will guess the "secret" right away. There aren't really any surprises in this book -- it's character-driven, not plot-driven. If you're at midlife (or beyond!) you'll identify with the characters in this book.
