“Waiting” on Wednesday: You Are My Only

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine. The purpose is to spotlight upcoming releases that we are excited for.

You Are My Only by Beth Kephart

Hardcover: 256 pages
Publication date: October 25, 2011
Publisher: EgmontUSA

Emmy Rane is married at nineteen, a mother by twenty. Trapped in a life with a husband she no longer loves, Baby is her only joy. Then one sunny day in September, Emmy takes a few fateful steps away from her baby and returns to find her missing. All that is left behind is a yellow sock.

Fourteen years later, Sophie, a homeschooled, reclusive teenage girl is forced to move frequently and abruptly from place to place, perpetually running from what her mother calls the “No Good.” One afternoon, Sophie breaks the rules, ventures out, and meets Joey and his two aunts. It is this loving family that gives Sophie the courage to look into her past. What she discovers changes her world forever. . . .

Not really my norm. Which is nice. There’s a certain mystery to this that I can’t wait to see unravel. I’m excited to see where Kephart takes this.

  1. This book looks really good, the synopsis really draws you in.

  2. This one definitely grabs me from the summary. I’m glad the release isn’t TOO far away now. Great pick!

    1. Haha, yeah. I’m happy it’s just a month away. Sometimes these WoW’s end up having released dates up to a year in advance, and it’s so frustrating finding out about something fantastic without being able to read it.

  3. Geez. This sounds like a real tear-jerker. But it sounds really, really good. Awesome pick. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Sounds like an emotional read. Great pick!

  5. Sounds like it’ll make me cry…I love it!

  6. I have this one from NetGalley but I haven’t had a chance to read it yet. It does sound like a compelling read. Hope you enjoy it when you get the chance to read it.

  7. This one is on my TBR list too. It looks so different than everything else I’ve been reading, and even just reading the blurb, I get curious! Great pick this week!

    1. I think it’s great to have a variety of books on my tbr. If they were all the same, I’d get really bored really fast.

  8. I’m adding this to my TBR right now. Although this isn’t the type of book I normally read, I do like this type of emotionally compelling book from time to time. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!
