Waiting on Wednesday: (59)

Like A River Glorious

Rae Carson
The Gold Seer Trilogy, #2
Greenwillow Books
Expected: September 27th, 2016

Description from GoodReads:

   After a harrowing journey across the country, Leah Westfall and her friends have finally arrived in California and are ready to make their fortunes in the Gold Rush. Lee has a special advantage over the other new arrivals in California—she has the ability to sense gold, a secret known only by her handsome best friend Jefferson and her murdering uncle Hiram.

   Lee and her friends have the chance to be the most prosperous settlers in California, but Hiram hasn’t given up trying to control Lee and her power. Sabotage and kidnapping are the least of what he’ll do to make sure Lee is his own. His mine is the deepest and darkest in the territory, and there Lee learns the full extent of her magical gift, the worst of her uncle, and the true strength of her friendships. To save everyone, she vows to destroy her uncle and the empire he is building—even at the cost of her own freedom.

Why I Want It:

   Last year, roughly about the same time as now, I picked up an ARC of Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson, and fell in love with it. To this day it is one of my most prized possessions. Since then, the wait has been never ending for Like A River Glorious. I just can't wait anymore.

   Walk on Earth a Stranger contained western adventure, gold, and magic. I'm hoping that Like a River Glorious will be the exact same way!

   That's my Waiting on Wednesday this week! Will you be picking up Like A River Glorious? What are you waiting on this week?
