Waiting on Wednesday (#40): Mistwalker by Saundra Mitchell


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


This week, I'm featuring:


Mistwalker by Saundra Mitchell
Publisher: Harcourt Children's Books
Publication Date: February 4, 2014

Summary (from Goodreads):

When Willa Dixon’s brother dies on the family lobster boat, her father forbids Willa from stepping foot on the deck again. With her family suffering, she’ll do anything to help out—even visiting the Grey Man.

Everyone in her small Maine town knows of this legendary spirit who haunts the lighthouse, controlling the fog and the fate of any vessel within his reach. But what Willa finds in the lighthouse isn’t a spirit at all, but a young man trapped inside until he collects one thousand souls.

Desperate to escape his cursed existence, Grey tries to seduce Willa to take his place. With her life on land in shambles, will she sacrifice herself?



I love the Vespertine trilogy by Saundra Mitchell, and I'm convinced that I will read anything she writes! Go Saundra!
