Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, created to discuss books that book bloggers haven’t read yet and they’re usually books yet to be released. I ran across it when looking for new content ideas for The Book Blog Life, and it looked like so much fun.The Crane Wife by Patrick Ness
Published by Canongate Books
The extraordinary happens every day...
One night, George Duncan - decent man, a good man - is woken by a noise in his garden. Impossibly, a great white crane has tumbled to earth, shot through its wing by an arrow. Unexpectedly moved, George helps the bird, and from the moment he watches it fly off, his life is transformed.
The next day, a kind but enigmatic woman walks into George's shop. Suddenly a new world opens up for George, and one night she starts to tell him the most extraordinary story.
Wise, romantic, magical and funny, The Crane Wife is a hymn to the creative imagination and a celebration of the disruptive and redemptive power of love.
The Crane Wife is a book that I had sat on my shelf for so long, I am a huge fan of Patrick Ness and I love the worlds and characters he creates. I’m sure that this one will not disappoint. I just haven’t made the time to read it, which is definitely something I need to remedy as soon as possible. I might even make it a priority before the end of the year.
