Title: Walk on Earth a Stranger (The Gold Seer Trilogy #1)
Author: 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!
