Waiting On Wednesday .... The Names They Gave Us

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick this week is The Names they Gave Us by Emery Lord

Here is the Goodreads synopsis 
From acclaimed author Emery Lord comes a vibrant, compelling story of love, loss, faith, and friendship.

Lucy Hansson was ready for a perfect summer with her boyfriend, working at her childhood Bible camp on the lake. But when her mom’s cancer reappears, Lucy falters—in faith, in love, and in her ability to cope. When her boyfriend “pauses” their relationship and her summer job switches to a different camp—one for troubled kids—Lucy isn’t sure how much more she can handle. Attempting to accept a new normal, Lucy slowly regains footing among her vibrant, diverse coworkers, Sundays with her mom, and a crush on a fellow counselor. But when long-hidden family secrets emerge, can Lucy set aside her problems and discover what grace really means?

Emotionally-charged and unforgettable, Emery Lord’s storytelling shines with the promise of new love and true friendship, even in the face of life’s biggest challenges.
My love of Emery Lord and her books is well known so it should surprise nobody that I am waiting on her newest release. I've been told this is Emery's version of taking us to 'feelings camp' and I could not be more excited. I love her characters, and how insightful and thoughtful her writing is.

The wait for this one is going to be torture because it is not coming out until May of 2017.

Expected release date - May 16, 2017
