Can't-Wait Wednesday: Remembrance by Mary Monroe @MaryMonroeBooks #DafinaBooks @KensingtonBooks

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa @ Wishful Endings to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released as well. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. Find out more here.

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

TITLE: Remembrance
AUTHOR: Mary Monroe 
PUBLISHER: Dafina Books
FORMAT: Hardcover
LENGTH: 304 pages
GENRE: Contemporary Fiction, Holiday
ISBN: 9781496715821
In this moving, unforgettable novel from New York Times bestselling author Mary Monroe, a successful, happily married mother suddenly finds herself feeling far from joyful. But Christmas brings an unexpected chance to rediscover herself, and what happiness really means . . .

For Beatrice Powell, the holidays are usually an extra-special time to celebrate. Between her twenty-year-plus marriage, gorgeous Berkeley, California, home, and three wonderful adult children, she has everything she could desire. But change-of-life doubts are making Beatrice a stranger to herself and her bewildered family. She only finds peace volunteering at the local soup kitchen, especially helping out homeless Charles Davenport. And his sensitivity and honesty soon comfort her in ways she never imagined . . .

Charles thought he had it all--until a devastating betrayal and the shattering loss of his family drove him to living on the streets. Beatrice is the first person who's truly cared about him in a long time. And little by little, he's finding reasons to care about rebuilding his life--and risking a sudden, courageous choice . . .

Drawn to Charles and the temptation of a second chance, Beatrice is faced with the hardest of decisions. But his insight, secrets--and the reminder of a profound past encounter--will give her unexpected inspiration, gratitude, and the strength she needs to find her way--perhaps in time for Christmas.

It's that time of year when the upcoming Christmas books are in the catalogs! This author is new to me. This one sounds like it will be an emotional read!
