Waiting On Wednesdays (4)

Waiting On Wednesdays is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights highly anticipated releases.

Title: Anxious Hearts
Author: Tucker Shaw
Publishing Date: May 1, 2010

“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.

My Thoughts: 
The cover is absolutely beautiful with the color composition and the magical air of the forest. I'm ashamed to say that I do judge books by the covers so I cannot wait for the book to be released. Even if the contents of the book, I think I'll just buy this book for my bookshelf. Also, the plot seems romantically sad and a nice twist to the poem, Evangeline, which I have never read but read the summary of. Here are some photos and more information for the cover shoot.

Also, if any of you have book suggestions or ideas to either improve Movie Poster Monday or Fashion Thursday, please tell me. I still haven't decided what book to do for tomorrow's Fashion Thursday, so please feel free to tell me!
