Waiting on Wednesday - 92

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine for bloggers and readers to see what new books will be released soon.
Catherine by April Lindner

A forbidden romance. A modern mystery. Wuthering Heights as you've never seen it before.

Catherine is tired of struggling musicians befriending her just so they can get a gig at her Dad's famous Manhattan club, The Underground. Then she meets mysterious Hence, an unbelievably passionate and talented musician on the brink of success. As their relationship grows, both are swept away in a fiery romance. But when their love is tested by a cruel whim of fate, will pride keep them apart?

Chelsea has always believed that her mom died of a brief illness, until she finds a letter her dad has kept from her for years -- a letter from her mom, Catherine, who didn't die: She "disappeared."

Driven by unanswered questions, Chelsea sets out to look for her -- starting with the return address on the letter: The Underground.

Told in two voices, twenty years apart, Catherine interweaves a timeless forbidden romance with a compelling modern mystery. (from GoodReads)

I wasn't the biggest fan of Wuthering Heights, but I absolutely adored April Lindner's retelling of Jane Eyre, so I'm willing to give Catherine a shot. Catherine will be released January 2, 2013.

Great pick!! I loved reading Jane and can't wait for this one ... I read Wuthering Heights in university and loved it ... hopefully this one is just as good!

We haven't read JANE yet, but we think it's neat that the author is updating so many classics. Hopefully it gets people to read the originals, too!

Jane by April Lindner is one of my favorite books so I am absolutely dying to get my hands on a copy of this one. Great pick!
