Waiting On Wednesday (1)...

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted each week by

My pick this week is: 
The Proper Care and Maintenance of Friendship by Lisa Verge Higgins
Rachel Braun was the inspiration to her group of friends, the one who 
lived each day to the fullest--and the one whose life was cut tragically short. Upon her untimely death, Rachel leaves letters for her three closest friends challenging them to face their biggest fears.What makes a wife a lover?
For Kate, the spark went out of her marriage long ago but her husband doesn't seem to notice. Their role as parents consumes their lives so they need to rekindle the romance they once shared.
What makes a woman a mother?
For Jo, a high-powered career has led her to believe that she doesn't have a single maternal instinct. When an orphan unexpectedly enters her life, she is forced to confront her own unhappy childhood and the walls it has built around her heart.
What makes a man the love of your life?
For Sarah, home is the steamy jungles of Africa while the man of her dreams waits in the air-conditioned confines of Los Angeles. Her longing for this man from the past is blinding her to a new love standing right in front of her.

What these women all have in common is a friend with a generous soul, an irrepressible spirit- and a serious illness. In her final letters, Rachel raises one last question: 

What makes a friend live in our hearts forever?

The Proper Car and Maintenance of Friendship will be released January 26, 2011
