Waiting on Wednesday: The Sleepwalker's Guide to Dancing
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine. The event spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.
This week, I am excited for the release of:
The Sleepwalker's Guide to Dancing
By Mira Jacob
Release Date: July 1, 2014
Genre: Fiction, Historical Fiction
When brain surgeon Thomas Eapen decides to cut short a visit to his mother's home in India in 1979, he sets into motion a series of events that will forever haunt him and his wife, Kamala; their intellectually precocious son, Akhil; and their watchful daughter, Amina. Now, twenty years later, in the heat of a New Mexican summer, Thomas has begun having bizarre conversations with his dead relatives and it's up to Amina-a photographer in the midst of her own career crisis-to figure out what is really going on. But getting to the truth is far harder than it seems. From Thomas's unwillingness to talk, to Kamala's Born Again convictions, to run-ins with a hospital staff that seems to know much more than they let on, Amina finds herself at the center of a mystery so thick with disasters that to make any headway at all, she has to unravel the family's painful past.
The title is what drew me to this one, and once I read the synopsis I knew it was one I had to add to my TBR list. This is the author's debut novel and has gotten a lot of positive reviews, so I am excited to read this one!
