Waiting on Wednesday: Anxious Hearts

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.  


Anxious Hearts by Tucker Shaw
Pub. Date: May 1, 2010




Goodreads says, "“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."


*Being the English teacher I am, I was immediately drawn to this YA novel that retells the classic poem, Evangeline. I am intrigued by this book; plus, I adore the cover! What are you guys waiting for?

  10. I think this sounds like a great love story. I'm sorry to say that I'm not familiar with the poem. But I will be, I looked it up in one of my school books from when I studied English, "The Norton Anthology of Poetry", and there it was! Now I have to go read it :)
