[NEW UPDATE] Before We Were Yours di Lisa Wingate

Cari lettori,
come sempre cerco di segnalarvi le nuove uscite più interessanti per quanto riguardo  i libri pubblicati in altre lingue.

Uscirà il prossimo 06 giugno il nuovo libro di Lisa Wingate dal titolo "Before We Were Yours" pubblicato da Ballantine Books, una delle maggiori case editrice statunitensi specializzati in libri economici o tascabili.

La trama di questo libro è veramente intrigante ed è basato su una storia vera.

Lisa Wingate ha pubblicato oltre venti romanzi, ma in italiano ne ho trovati solamente due:

-Non camminerai più sola uscito a novembre 2017 per Mondadori
-La scatola delle preghiere pubblicato a gennaio 2018 per Leggereditore

Speriamo che almeno questo romanzo venga tradotto presto.

Vi lascio intanto la cover e la trama in inglese!


Two families, generations apart, are forever changed by a heartbreaking injustice in this poignant novel, inspired by a true story, for readers of Orphan Train and The Nightingale.

Memphis, 1939. Twelve-year-old Rill Foss and her four younger siblings live a magical life aboard their family’s Mississippi River shantyboat. But when their father must rush their mother to the hospital one stormy night, Rill is left in charge—until strangers arrive in force. Wrenched from all that is familiar and thrown into a Tennessee Children’s Home Society orphanage, the Foss children are assured that they will soon be returned to their parents—but they quickly realize that the truth is much darker. At the mercy of the facility’s cruel director, Rill fights to keep her sisters and brother together—in a world of danger and uncertainty.

Aiken, South Carolina, present day. Born into wealth and privilege, Avery Stafford seems to have it all: a successful career as a federal prosecutor, a handsome fiancé, and a lavish wedding on the horizon. But when Avery returns home to help her father weather a health crisis, a chance encounter leaves her with uncomfortable questions—and compels her to take a journey through her family's long-hidden history, on a path that will ultimately lead either to devastation or redemption.

Based on one of America’s most notorious real-life scandals—in which Georgia Tann, director of a Memphis-based adoption organization, kidnapped and sold poor children to wealthy families all over the country—Wingate’s riveting, wrenching, and ultimately uplifting tale reminds us how, even though the paths we take can lead to many places, the heart never forgets where we belong.
