WoW: Anxious Hearts by Tucker Shaw

“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 to 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.

Fact about me: I came this close to being called Evangeline. My parent's were going to call me that because it means gift from God. Cheesy, I know. My dad decided against it because apparently he thought everyone would call me Evy. I think it's a gorgeous name. Anyway...

I first heard about Anxious Hearts* in a Books to Pine for post at The Story Siren. I thought the cover was lovely, so I googled for a summary. From the summary, I think the cover fits the book perfectly, as it has a dreamy quality to it. It seems like a gorgeous love story. This book comes out from Amulet Books on May 1, 2010. It's a bit of a long wait, but from the sound of the book, it'll be worth it! What do you think?

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.
