Midwest Book Review Bookwatch, August 2018

“…be advised that its heady descriptions and use of the first person makes for a compelling, empathetic examination that proves hard to put down and thoroughly engrossing as readers follow Arabella’s revelations, growth, and determination.

Waiting for You at Midnight is a vibrant story recommended for readers of women’s literature who would consider the fundamental differences between the sexes as they follow how an older woman recreates a different course for her love life in later years.”

“It shook me, this book. Just grabbed hold of me and shook out whatever defenses I’d marshalled against grief. Waiting for You at Midnight is the story of a single year in the life of Arabella, the year following the death of her husband. But this is not a sad book. There is muddling, yes, and missteps, for sure, but there is no wallowing. It is a story of care set in New Orleans, the City that Care Forgot, a contrast that lays the human condition out bare and honest for all the world to see.”

–Barb Johnson, Author of More of This World or Maybe Another
