Waiting on Wednesday: August 7, 2013

"The Salt from the ocean hung thick and heavy in the air." The Storycatcher by

Summary Courtesy of Goodreads:

Shelly Parker never much liked Faith Dobbins, the uppity way that girl bossed her around. But they had more in common than she knew. Shelly tried to ignore the haints that warned her Faith’s tyrannical father, Pastor Dobbins, was a devil in disguise. But when Faith started acting strange, Shelly couldn’t avoid the past—not anymore.

Critically acclaimed, award-winning author Ann Hite beckons readers back to the Depression-era South, from the saltwater marshes of Georgia’s coast to the whispering winds of North Carolina’s mystical Black Mountain, in a mesmerizing gothic tale about the dark family secrets that come back to haunt us.

What can I say, I'm a fan of gothic novels.  I'm also a sucker for a novel set in the depression-era south, which makes this book sound like it is right up my alley.  Publication is set for September 10, 2013.  Is anyone else eager for this one?

Thanks to Breaking the Spine  for hosting this event every Wednesday allowing bloggers to highlight a book that they are eagerly anticipating hitting the shelves!
