Can’t Wait Wednesday #20 Greyfriars House by Emma Fraser

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you’re continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well!


Between the setting in the islands of Scotland to the era of time, this sounds fascinating to me. But what really gets me is what could Olivia has seen all those years ago that caused her own aunts to act so horribly toward her. And will her daughter Charlotte be able to discover the truth behind it all. June is such a long time away, but it sounds like it will be well worth the wait!

What are you waiting on this week?

Once a home full of love, all that remains in Greyfriars House are secrets and lies . . .
On a remote Scottish island sits Greyfriars House, a house haunted by unspoken words and family mysteries. But once it was a happy and comforting place and in the summer of 1939, family and friends gather to forget their fears about the impending war. Nine-year-old Olivia watches the grown-ups with fascination particularly her mother and her two aunts, the three daughters of the family who own the island. Then Olivia she sees something she isn’t meant to and when the truth comes out it reverberates through the generations.
Almost fifty years later, Olivia has fallen ill and urges her own daughter, Charlotte, to visit Greyfriars to reconnect the existing branches of the family. Charlotte is hesitant to get to know her great-aunts, women who have always shunned her mother, but curiosity and a desire to run from her own life get the better of her and she goes to the island.
But Greyfriars House is a shadow of its former self and Charlotte finds her great-aunts tense and cautious. There is something they want to share with Charlotte, but in order to truly understand their secret Charlotte must first understand what happened to them before and during the war . . .

    I haven’t heard of this, but that cover is stunning! And with my interest in all things Scotland thanks to my current obsession with Outlander, I may have to look into this one. Great pick! Thanks for visiting my CWW earlier this week at Lisa Loves Literature.

    I can see why you want to read this one, Jenea. It sounds very intriguing and the Scottish setting would be too hard to pass up! I love the cover as well. I am adding this to my own wish list. 🙂
