Waiting on Wednesday: Here Comes the Sun by Nicole Y. Dennis-Benn

 "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that you are eagerly anticipating.

Today, I am waiting on:  
Here Comes the Sun by Nicole Y. Dennis-Benn


From Goodreads:
Capturing the distinct rhythms of Jamaican life and dialect, Nicole Dennis- Benn pens a tender hymn to a world hidden among pristine beaches and the wide expanse of turquoise seas. At an opulent resort in Montego Bay, Margot hustles to send her younger sister, Thandi, to school. Taught as a girl to trade her sexuality for survival, Margot is ruthlessly determined to shield Thandi from the same fate. When plans for a new hotel threaten their village, Margot sees not only an opportunity for her own financial independence but also perhaps a chance to admit a shocking secret: her forbidden love for another woman. As they face the impending destruction of their community, each woman—fighting to balance the burdens she shoulders with the freedom she craves—must confront long-hidden scars. From a much-heralded new writer, Here Comes the Sun offers a dramatic glimpse into a vibrant, passionate world most outsiders see simply as paradise.
This cover calls me to me! I really like the idea of the multiple POV and the setting of this one.  Here Comes the Sun is scheduled to be released on July 19, 2016, and I can't wait to read it!

What books are you waiting on this Wednesday??

  1. Multiple POVs can be a hit or a miss to me, it mostly depends on the author's writing, of course. This one sounds like a fascinating read and quite different, though, so I hope you really enjoy it when the time comes! :)

  8. This does have a distinctive cover- makes me want to be on a beach somewhere. And I do like multiple POV's if done right- it can add a lot to the story to see from different perspectives. sounds like a good book .:)

  14. This does sound good! Multiple POVs are less jarring to me these days, but it also depends on the author and how relevant and engaging they make the authors and POVs. I think this one is worth reading though. Here's mine: http://editingeverything.com/blog/2016/06/22/wow-darkest-secret/

  15. What a lovely cover! Multiple POVs can be quite tricky since it can turn out to be very good for the narration or go completely the other way round, but I'm sure intrigued by the synopsis!
