Waiting on Wednesday

Anxious Hearts by Tucker Shaw
Release Date: May 1, 2010

“Evangeline,” he repeated, calling at a whisper. “Evangeline.” He was not calling that she may hear, he was calling that somehow her soul might know that he was devoted entirely to her, only to her. “Evangeline, I will find you.”

Eva and Gabe explore the golden forest of their seaside Maine town, unknowingly tracing the footsteps of two teens, Evangeline and Gabriel, who once lived in the idyllic wooded village of Acadia more than one hundred years ago. On the day that Evangeline and Gabriel were be wed, their village was attacked and the two were separated. And now in the present, Gabe has mysteriously disappeared from Eva.

A dreamlike, loose retelling of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s famous love poem “Evangeline,” Anxious Hearts tells an epic tale of unrequited love and the hope that true love can be reunited.


Did anyone else think at first glance the girl on the cover was Mila Kunis? Anyhoo, this one sounds like it could be a good romance/mystery type of read.

I can see the Mila resemblance! I'm looking forward to this one. I liked Tucker Shaw's Flavor of the Week.
