Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine every Wednesday. It’s about spotlighting some of the releases we are awaiting eagerly.
This week I’m waiting patiently eagerly for…

Title: Walk on Earth a Stranger
Author: Rae Carson
Series: The Gold Seer Trilogy #1
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Historical, Romance, Paranormal
Published By: Greenwillow Books
Coming out on September 22, 2015

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’m going to be honest, what first hooked me with this book was the title. It’s such a strange title that I was intrigued. Then I saw the cover and the cover is just breathtaking. It sounds like an interesting read.

Let’s talk about it.
