Waiting on Wednesday (96): Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: Walk on Earth a Stranger (The Gold Seer Trilogy #1)
Rae Carson
Publisher: Greenwillow Books (HarperCollins)
Release Date: September 22, 2015

Gold is in my blood, in my breath, even in the flecks in my eyes.

Lee Westfall has a strong, loving family. She has a home she loves and a loyal steed. She has a best friend--who might want to be something more.

She also has a secret.

Lee can sense gold in the world around her. Veins deep in the earth. Small nuggets in a stream. Even gold dust caught underneath a fingernail. She has kept her family safe and able to buy provisions, even through the harshest winters. But what would someone do to control a girl with that kind of power? A person might murder for it.

When everything Lee holds dear is ripped away, she flees west to California--where gold has just been discovered. Perhaps this will be the one place a magical girl can be herself. If she survives the journey.

The acclaimed Rae Carson begins a sweeping new trilogy set in Gold Rush-era America, about a young woman with a powerful and dangerous gift.

I LOVED Carson's Fire and Thorns trilogy, so I can't wait to everything that she writes next, especially since this is set in an entirely different setting. Plus that title and that cover are awesome!

What are you waiting on this week?
