Welcome to Waiting on Wednesday hosted by Breaking the Spine.The idea of Waiting on Wednesday is to talk about upcoming books that you’re excited about. I am excited to do this feature because it will allow me to look at upcoming books a lot more, and be more aware of what’s new in the world of books.
Title: Black Dove, White Raven
Author: Elizabeth Wein
Release Date: March 31
Check this book out on Goodreads.
Emilia and Teo’s lives changed in a fiery, terrifying instant when a bird strike brought down the plane their stunt pilot mothers were flying. Teo’s mother died immediately, but Em’s survived, determined to raise Teo according to his late mother’s wishes-in a place where he won’t be discriminated against because of the color of his skin. But in 1930s America, a white woman raising a black adoptive son alongside a white daughter is too often seen as a threat.
Seeking a home where her children won’t be held back by ethnicity or gender, Rhoda brings Em and Teo to Ethiopia, and all three fall in love with the beautiful, peaceful country. But that peace is shattered by the threat of war with Italy, and teenage Em and Teo are drawn into the conflict. Will their devotion to their country, its culture and people, and each other be their downfall or their salvation? (Source: Goodreads)
When I first saw that Elizabeth Wein had another book coming out I said, out loud, “Yes, Please.” Wein’s writing is so spectacular and moving, her book Code Name Verity was so well written it skyrocketed up the charts to be one of my favourite books of all time.
I haven’t yet read the companion novel, Rose Under Fire, but I do own it. I’ll certainly be reading it in the lead-up to this release from Wein.
What book are you looking forward to? Let me know in the comments!
