Waiting on Wednesday (133)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where that spotlights the upcoming books I am currently anticipating. 

~Currently Anticipating~
Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson 
Release Date: Sept. 22nd, 2015
Publisher: Greenwillow Books 
Walk on Earth a Stranger (The Gold Seer Trilogy, #1)
Goodreads Summary:
The first book in a new trilogy from acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Rae Carson. A young woman with the magical ability to sense the presence of gold must flee her home, taking her on a sweeping and dangerous journey across Gold Rush–era America.

Lee Westfall has a secret. She can sense the presence of gold in the world around her. Veins deep beneath the earth, pebbles in the river, nuggets dug up from the forest floor. The buzz of gold means warmth and life and home—until everything is ripped away by a man who wants to control her. Left with nothing, Lee disguises herself as a boy and takes to the trail across the country. Gold was discovered in California, and where else could such a magical girl find herself, find safety? Rae Carson, author of the acclaimed Girl of Fire and Thorns trilogy, dazzles with this new fantasy that subverts both our own history and familiar fantasy tropes.

Walk on Earth a Stranger, the first book in this new trilogy, introduces—as only Rae Carson can—a strong heroine, a perilous road, a fantastical twist, and a slow-burning romance. Includes a map and author’s note on historical research.

I don't understand. Is this historical fiction or fantasy :o? Or a mix of both?
Oh god either way, I am most definitely interested to see how Rae Carson writes this story.
And guys can we take a moment to admire that cover?
 What is that gorgeousness of gold flowing out around her. It's too pretty for my eyes. 

What are you waiting on this week?

  1. This sounds promising. Thank you for the introduction. Although my 2015 release is already chest deep, I hadn't seen this one before.
