Waiting on Wednesday 7/27: Overseas

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I chose the title Overseas by Beatriz Chantrill Williams. This is a time-travel romance with a setting and characters that I’ve never encountered, and I’m looking forward to reading it. I’ve included the summary below–no cover available yet as far as I can tell.

Expected publication 2011 by G. P. Putnam’s Sons

Julian Ashford is a man out of time: a decorated officer swept off a First World War battlefield into modern-day Manhattan by a force he can’t explain. As Julian Laurence, he’s built an investment empire; yet he shuns attention, desperate to conceal his past and unable to forget the woman who emerged from the rain-darkened shadows of the Western Front to save his life, on the eve of his disappearance from the pages of history.

When Kate Wilson attracts the notice of the legendary Julian Laurence at a business meeting, no one’s more surprised than she is. After all, she’s just an analyst, trying to make her mark in the high-stakes world of international finance without losing herself in its moral thickets. Julian’s brilliant allure – his relentless energy and his extraordinary intellect – all electrify her, but she’s baffled by his mysterious behavior. Why would he fall so hard, so passionately? And what history-transforming secret drives his fateful obsession with her?

What about you? What are you looking forward to this Wednesday?
