"Waiting on' Wednesday"

I've been consistently impressed with the fiction titles being published by Abingdon Press, so I thought I'd spotlight one of their upcoming releases that I'm eagerly awaiting. From the cover to the story synopsis, They Almost Always Come Home has me intrigued. The author, Cynthia Ruchti, is the current president of American Christian Fiction Writers and placed second in the ACFW Genesis Contest in 2008 with this story.

About They Almost Always Come Home:

She’d leave her husband…if she could find him.

When Libby’s husband is late returning from a two-week canoe trip to the Canadian wilderness, she imagines the worst. But imagination’s fears seem two-dimensional compared to the 3-D reality of what she now faces.

The authorities write off his disappearance as an unhappy husband’s escape from an empty marriage and unrewarding career. Libby refuses to believe that possibility. If anyone were going to opt for escape, it would have been her. If Lacey hadn’t died, their marriage might have survived. But grief’s wedge split the distance between them wide open.

Libby enlists the aid of her wilderness-savvy father-in-law and her faith-walking best friend to help her search for clues to her husband’s disappearance…if for no other reason than to free her to move on. What they discover in the search upends her presumptions about her husband and rearranges her faith.

They Almost Always Come Home is set to release in May 2010.

I too think Abingdon Press is coming out with some good books. Great picK Jenny. Next week I'll play too. Funny thing: I had one archived since Christmas, but couldn't find it. Then, I had to be offline for most of the day. Aaanyhoo, good pick!

I'm glad you publicized this book, Jenny, because I'm also looking forward to reading it. When I saw it on Abingdon's list of 2010 releases several weeks ago, it immediately went on my wish list.
