Waiting on Wednesday





Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.





A new Miriam Toews book will be coming out on April 5th. It's called Irma Voth and the description from Random House reads:

Irma Voth entangles love, longing and dark family secrets. The stifling, reclusive Mennonite life of nineteen-year-old Irma Voth - newly married and newly deserted and as unforgettable a character as Nomi Nickel in A Complicated Kindness - is irrevocably changed when a film crew moves in to make a movie about the community. She embraces the absurdity, creative passion and warmth of their world but her intractable and domineering father is determined to keep her from it at all costs. The confrontation between them sets her on an irrevocable path towards something that feels like freedom as she and her young sister, Aggie, wise beyond her teenage years, flee to the city, upheld only by their love for each other and their smart wit, even as they begin to understand the tragedy that has their family in its grip.

This one sounds fabulous! My in-laws live in a community with a lot of Mennonites, and I always like to read about them.
