Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a meme hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings   to spotlight upcoming releases we are excited about that we have yet to read.

The book I’m waiting on this week is…


Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay made everyone love historical fiction, right? I know I was a fan! It has been twelve years since Sarah’s Key was published, and four years since de Rosnay’s last novel, and when I was asked if I would like to read an early copy of The Rain Watcher, I jumped at the chance! I hope to have it on my nightstand with my current reads very, very soon!

Synopsis from Goodreads:

The first new novel in four years from the beloved superstar author of Sarah’s Key, a heartbreaking and uplifting story of family secrets and devastating disaster, in the tradition of THE NEST.

The Rain Watcher is a powerful family drama set in Paris as the Malegarde family gathers to celebrate the father’s 70th birthday. Their hidden fears and secrets are slowly unraveled as the City of Light undergoes a stunning natural disaster. Seen through the eyes of charismatic photographer Linden Malegarde, the youngest son, all members of the family will have to fight to keep their unity against tragic circumstances.

In this profound and intense novel of love and redemption, De Rosnay demonstrates all of her writer’s skills both as an incredible storyteller but also as a soul seeker.
