Waiting on Wednesday (40)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine! It spotlights soon to be released books that can't come quick enough!

This week's most anticipated is...

The Springsweet by Saundra Mitchell!

Heartbroken over the tragic death of her fiancĂ©, seventeen-year-old Zora Stewart leaves Baltimore for the frontier town of West Glory, Oklahoma, to help her young widowed aunt keep her homestead going. There she discovers that she possesses the astonishing ability to sense water under the parched earth. When her aunt hires her out as a“springsweet” to advise other settlers where to dig their wells, Zora feels the burden of holding the key to something so essential to survival in this unforgiving land. Even more, she finds herself longing for love the way the prairie thirsts for water. Maybe, in the wildness of the territories, Zora can finally move beyond simply surviving and start living. (summary from Goodreads)

I know this one is old news, as it were, but I only just read The Vespertine last week and I really enjoyed it! I can't wait for this one because I truly liked Zora and need to know she gets her happy I'm hoping there's a hint of where & how Amelia and Nathaniel ended up!

Saundra Mitchell's The Springsweet is due to be released 17 April 2012.

What is with all of these books coming out April? I'm going to be broke I tell you!! What are you waiting on this week?
