Waiting on Wednesday (#133): Forbidden by Eve Bunting


"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:


Forbidden by Eve Bunting
Publisher: Clarion Press
Publication Date: December 1, 2015

Summary (from Goodreads):

In early-nineteenth century Scotland, sixteen-year-old Josie, an orphan, is sent to live with an aunt and uncle on the rocky, stormy northwest coast. Everything and everyone in her new surroundings, including her relatives, is sinister, threatening, and mysterious. She's told that Eli, the young man she's attracted to, is forbidden to her, but not why. Spirited, curious, and determined, Josie sets out to learn the village's secrets and discovers evil, fueled by heartless greed, as well as a ghostly presence eager for revenge. An author's note gives the historical inspiration for this story.



This sounds EXACTLY like something I would enjoy! Hopefully!

EDIT: I actually just got this from Edelweiss! But I schedule my Waiting on Wednesday posts months in advance so... :D
