Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and I'm so excited to share today's book!
I'm obsessed with Australian lit, and so happy it's easier to find now--I used to import a book, one per semester. Brigid Lowry, Joanne Horniman, Jesse Blackadder--and now, Pene Henson. Storm Season promises a steamy romance in the woods. With the praise I've heard for Henson's first novel, I can't wait to read Storm Season, out on February 2.
The great outdoors isn’t so great for Sydney It-Girl Lien Hong. It’s too dark, too quiet, and there are spiders in the toilet of the cabin she is sharing with friends on the way to a New South Wales music festival. To make matters worse, she’s been separated from her companions and taken a bad fall.
With a storm approaching, her rescue comes in the form of a striking wilderness ranger named Claudia Sokolov, whose isolated cabin, soulful voice and collection of guitars bely a complicated history. While they wait out the weather, the women find an undeniable connection—one that puts them both on new trajectories that last long after the storm has cleared.
