Waiting On Wednesday: Anxious Hearts

Book: Anxious Hearts by Tucker Shaw

Release date: May 1st 2010

Publisher:
Amulet Books

Summary:

“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.

Here's Why I'm Waiting on Anxious Hearts:
1. The lovely title.
2. The gorgeous cover.
3. Romance.
^^ What are you Waiting for? ^^
