"Waiting On" Wednesday: Vintage


"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:


Vintage
By Susan Gloss

Publication Date: March 25

From Amazon:

At Hourglass Vintage in Madison, Wisconsin, every item in the boutique has a story to tell...and so do the women who are drawn there.

Violet Turner has always dreamed of owning a shop like Hourglass Vintage. When she is faced with the possibility of losing it, she realizes that, as much as she wants to, she cannot save it alone.

Eighteen-year-old April Morgan is nearly five months along in an unplanned pregnancy when her hasty engagement is broken. When she returns the perfect 1950s wedding dress, she discovers unexpected possibilities and friends who won't let her give up on her dreams.

Betrayed by her husband, Amithi Singh begins selling off her old clothes, remnants of her past life. After decades of housekeeping and parenting a daughter who rejects her traditional ways, she fears she has nothing more ahead for her.


An engaging story that beautifully captures the essence of women's friendship and love, Vintage is a charming tale of possibility, of finding renewal and hope when we least expect it.

It's funny the book you picked has to do with Vintage...as I'm currently reading Lindsey Leavitt's book 'Going Vintage' :) Sounds like I should read 'Vintage' next to keep with the theme.

That seems really sweet. I love stories about women banding together to make life better.

Sounds interesting. You seem to like books that tell the stories of multiple characters at once. Just a simple observation ;)

This isn't really the type of book I would normally read, but it does sound like it can be a very eye-opening experience. I hope you enjoy it when you get it!

This sounds like a great story. What an appropriately vintage dress on the cover.
