Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m waiting on: The Hunters by Kat Gordon
Expected Release Date: May 31, 2018
A sweeping, coming-of-age story set against the richly atmospheric backdrop of colonial Kenya in the 1920s.
THE HUNTERS is narrated by Theo Miller, fifteen when he first arrives in the country, the son of the new Director of Kenyan railways.
Falling under the spell of the glamourous Happy Valley set, he is seduced by rich, reckless Freddie and enchanting Sylvie.
But behind their allure lies a dangerous cocktail of love, lust and betrayal that Theo must navigate and all the while, dark clouds are gathering over his family and fortunes as Africa changes around them.
I find the Happy Valley set to be incredibly interesting to read about (though obviously problematic). The Hunters sounds like an engaging work of historical fiction to get lost in, and that cover is pretty gorgeous as well.
Does this sound appealing to you too? What book(s) are you waiting on lately?
