Waiting on Wednesday - When We Were Worthy



Waiting on Wednesday was a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Although Jill is no longer hosting this event, I'll continuing to post one soon to be released title on occasional Wednesdays.

This week's book, When We Were Worthy, is one that I have actually finished reading or rather I've finished an advance copy of it.  I liked it very much.  I've read several books by Marybeth Mayhew Whalen and have liked them all.  I still have a few to catch up on and I hope to do that in upcoming months.  If you read She Reads, you know that Marybeth is one of the founders of this website.  This week's book:




Publication Date:  September 12th

When the sound of sirens cuts through a cool fall night, the small town of Worthy, Georgia, hurtles from triumph to tragedy. Just hours before, they’d watched the Wildcats score a winning touchdown. Now, they’re faced with the deaths of three cheerleaders—their promising lives cut short in a fatal crash. And the boy in the other car—the only one to survive—is believed to be at fault. As rumors begin to fly and accusations spin, allegiances form and long-kept secrets emerge.

At the center of the whirlwind are four women, each grappling with loss, regret, shame, and lies: Marglyn, a grieving mother; Darcy, whose son had been behind the wheel; Ava, a substitute teacher with a scandalous secret; and Leah, a cheerleader who should have been in the car with her friends, but wasn’t. If the truth comes out, will it bring redemption—or will it be their downfall?

  2. I've never read this author, but an interesting premise. I'll have to give Whalen a look.

  3. I would definitely read this! Cover and blurb pull me in. I've also read Under the Harrow and Kingdom Come, listed on your sidebar recently. Both good reads for me. Enjoy!
