"Waiting On" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.Here's what I'm waiting on this Wednesday!
The Mirk and Midnight Hour by Jane Nickerson
Expected publication: March 2014 by Random House
Jane Nickerson's second novel, also set in the "Strands" world, is based on the Scottish 'Ballad of Tam Lin,' and is set in Mississippi during the Civil War. Violet Dancey, a 17-year-old whose father has left to fight in the Civil War, is forced to confront Thomas, a hurt Union solider near her home. She must decide how to approach the enemy--and how to deal with her growing attraction to him.
Personally, I am not familiar with the Scottish ballad on which the book is based, but I'm 100% sure I will enjoy this book just as much as I did Strands - Jane Nickerson is one extremely talented writer. Her prose is beautiful, evocative and seductive. I can't wait to read her second book!
What are you waiting on?!
