Wishing & Waiting on Wednesday: Season of Storms

There’s nothing like a Wednesday for thinking about the books we want to read! My Wishing & Waiting on Wednesday post is linking up with two fabulous book memes, Wishlist Wednesday (hosted by Pen to Paper) and Waiting on Wednesday (hosted by Breaking the Spine).

My pick this week is an upcoming reissue of a book by a favorite author:


Season of Storms by Susanna Kearsley
(Release date: September 2, 2014)

Synopsis via Goodreads:

In the early 1900s, in the elegant, isolated villa Il Piacere, the playwright Galeazzo D’Ascanio lived for Celia Sands. She was his muse and his mistress, his most enduring obsession. And she was the inspiration for his most stunning and original play. But the night before she was to take the stage in the leading role, Celia disappeared. Now, decades later, in a theatre on the grounds of Il Piacere, Alessandro D’Ascanio is preparing to stage the first performance of his grandfather’s masterpiece. A promising young actress – who shares Celia Sands’ name, but not her blood – has agreed to star. She is instantly drawn to the mysteries surrounding the play – and to her compelling, compassionate employer. And even though she knows she should let the past go, in the dark – in her dreams – it comes back.

Season of Storms was originally published in 2001, but will be reissued this year with a shiny new cover, thanks to Sourcebooks Landmark. I think this is one of the few remaining Susanna Kearsley books that I haven’t read, and with its new cover, will look perfect on my shelf next to all of her other gorgeous books. And lest anyone think I’m shallow and I’m basing this on looks alone… yes, I really do want to read the book!

    • I’ve bought the new versions even for ones I already owned (like Mariana) because they’re just so gorgeous! I do love her books anyway, no matter the cover. 🙂
