Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to talk about the books that you’re eagerly waiting for.
Red Hill By Jamie McGuire.
Release Date: October 1, 2013
What it’s about: For Scarlet, raising her two daughters alone means fighting for tomorrow is an everyday battle. Nathan has a wife, but can’t remember what it’s like to be in love; only his young daughter Zoe makes coming home worthwhile. Miranda’s biggest concern is whether her new VW Bug is big enough to carry her sister and their boyfriends on a weekend escape from college finals.
When reports of a widespread, deadly “outbreak” begin to surface, these ordinary people face extraordinary circumstances and suddenly their fates are intertwined. Recognizing they can’t outrun the danger, Scarlet, Nathan, and Miranda desperately seek shelter at the same secluded ranch, Red Hill. Emotions run high while old and new relationships are tested in the face of a terrifying enemy—an enemy who no longer remembers what it’s like to be human.
Set against the backdrop of a brilliantly realized apocalyptic world, love somehow finds a way to survive. But what happens when the one you’d die for becomes the one who could destroy you?
Shelly’s thoughts: I’ve read a couple other books by Jamie McGuire, namely Walking Distaster and Providence. I was poking around Amazon and found that she had a new book coming out in October. Since I’ve been on such a huge apocalyptic genre kick I immediately gravitated toward this book. I really love the worlds that McGuire builds and I know that this will become a book that I’ll shove at everyone demanding that they read it. Plus it sounds spooky, which will be perfect for October and Halloween season.
