Waiting On Wednesday: The Girl She Was by Alafair Burke

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine. The purpose is to spotlight upcoming releases that we are excited for.


From the moment I heard about this book, I was so intrigued by it, especially as it gives me slight SJ Watson Before I Go To Sleep vibes and I loved that book when it was first released.

Expected Publication: 5th January 2022

Published by: Allen & Unwin

The past refuses to be forgotten in this gripping new thriller from the author of The Wife and The Better Sister. She calls herself Hope Miller, but she has no idea who she actually is.

Fourteen years ago, she was found, thrown from an overturned vehicle, with no clue to her identity. Hope eventually started a new life, but never recovered her memory – and always wondered what she may have left behind, or what she could have been running away from.

Now she’s missing. The only lead is a drop of blood connected to a notorious Kansas murderer. With nowhere else to turn, Hope’s best friend, Lindsay Kelly, calls NYPD homicide detective Ellie Hatcher – a woman with her own complicated history and links to the Kansas case.

In pursuit of answers, three women search for the truth beneath long-buried secrets. And when their searches converge, what they find will upend everything they’ve ever known.
