The story is set among a tree-lined, middle class community, unspoiled, neighborhood friends playing safely on the sidewalks. Precisely at five-thirty, well-behaved daddies rush home to kiss their wives, and all is right with the world. The only problem is, nothing is as it seems. Secret sins and obsessions live in unseen places...in fact, how well do you know your own next-door neighbors?

Join the life of a pretty, southern misfit with the uncanny ability to read greed and lust inside those who are up to no good. But what’s a regular, young girl to do about it? With no one to take her side, her help will come from a most uncommon source! You’ll cringe and you’ll cry, but no doubt share a few good laughs along the way.

In a heartrending twist, the girl who can see what others can’t-- is herself blind to the secret that will bring her own family to its knees. Reader beware, this isn’t just another, typical Monday.

I read Waiting for Monday last week and she is still with me. This may not mean anything to someone else, but I read at least 5 books a week. To have a character still stay with me this long speaks so much about the author for me.
I have read 100's of books where the main character lives a life of torture. Lives that seem to be nothing more than an exercise in tragedy day after day. And in each of those books the character eventually prevails and triumphs over their tormentors. You know, yadda, yadda, yadda, right?
Well, let me tell you, thats not how Janet Thronberry writes. Yes, it is a harrowing story of good eventually triumphing over evil. But Ms Throneberry takes you on such a journey to get there you can't put the book down.
I never write reviews. I almost never bother to reccomend a book. Yet, her I am, shouting from the cyber Mountian tops to who ever with listen.
Janet Thronberry, I ca't wait for your next offering.

This is a very well written book that will keep your interest from the first page until the last. It is set in the South and opens doors to closets that hold many dark secrets. It is truly a wonderful read. It also shares things that most families do not want to discuss. I hope that Janet continues to provide more books; she is a wonderful writer and spins her spell in her creations. This is a book that most people who were born and raised in the South, especially during this era can truly enjoy and it may help anyone who has gone through the "secrets" that are disclosed with the healing process. A very good read!!! Thank you Janet!
