Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m waiting on Regina Sirois‘s To Move the World, the October installment of Power of the Matchmaker. I absolutely adore this series! Each book is written by a different author featuring one central character, Miss Pearl. The eccentric matchmaker meddles and gently nudges couples across the world (and time) together. This particular book is set in England during WWII. I love historical fiction from this time period so double bonus for me 😀To Move the World by Regina Sirois
Series: Power of the Matchmaker #10
Published by Self Publish on 2016-10-01
Eve Brannon never had to bother planning out her future. In the Yorkshire dales where life is harder, it is also simpler. Next in line to inherit her family's farm, she will raise another generation of children and sheep high in the uplands of England. Waiting until next year when she is 19 to marry her father's handsome hired hand, Alan, is the detail she added herself.
But in 1939 even the most stalwart corners of the world are vibrating with the tremors of change. Eve's long-anticipated proposal comes on the wings of losing Alan to the Royal Army and at the brink of the farm's profitable war years the sheep herd is decimated by a mysterious illness. With her steady future suddenly in the clutches of a capricious fate, Eve is introduced to Jonathon Doran, a land manager anxious to prove himself in a crisis, and she discovers that the solid earth beneath her feet is moving after all.
What are you not-so-patiently waiting on this Wednesday?
