“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.

This was a book I found wile surfing the web and also on one of the blogs I follow. I've read some of Longfellow's works but never "Evangeline". This book looks really good.

Also this book looks interesting ( I haven't found a synopsis for this book yet, but I love the cover!

From what I know and I've heard, this story is about love and friendships. The cover, though, is amazing. This is from the same author of Impossible, so I think this one is going to be pretty good!

  1. Both of these look like fantastic books! I loved Impossible and Evangeline has a neat premise. Great picks.

    Here is my WoW pick.
