Can’t-Wait Wednesday: Under the Whispering Door by T.J. Klune
Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings and spotlights upcoming releases.
When a reaper comes to collect Wallace Price from his own funeral, Wallace suspects he really might be dead.
Instead of leading him directly to the afterlife, the reaper takes him to a small village. On the outskirts, off the path through the woods, tucked between mountains, is a particular tea shop, run by a man named Hugo. Hugo is the tea shop’s owner to locals and the ferryman to souls who need to cross over.
But Wallace isn’t ready to abandon the life he barely lived. With Hugo’s help he finally starts to learn about all the things he missed in life.
When the Manager, a curious and powerful being, arrives at the tea shop and gives Wallace one week to cross over, Wallace sets about living a lifetime in seven days.
By turns heartwarming and heartbreaking, this absorbing tale of grief and hope is told with TJ Klune’s signature warmth, humour, and extraordinary empathy.
Why I Can’t Wait:
After falling in love with The House in the Cerulean Sea, I can’t wait to read the upcoming book from this incredible author. It sounds like it’s going to be another beautiful story and has quickly become one of my most-anticipated releases of 2021. Plus the cover is gorgeous!
