Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekley meme hosted by Breaking The Spine to showcase unreleased novels that we are waiting for anxiously. This week I'm picking: The Vespertine. (And I know that it came out two weeks ago, but I haven't been able to buy it yet and I'm just dying to read it!)

The Vestpertine by Saundra Mitchell
Pub. Date: March 7, 2011
It's the summer of 1889, and Amelia van den Broek is new to Baltimore and eager to take in all the pleasures the city has to offer. But her gaiety is interrupted by disturbing, dreamlike visions she has only at sunset—visions that offer glimpses of the future. Soon, friends and strangers alike call on Amelia to hear her prophecies. However, a forbidden romance with Nathaniel, an artist, threatens the new life Amelia is building in Baltimore. This enigmatic young man is keeping secrets of his own—still, Amelia finds herself irrepressibly drawn to him. When one of her darkest visions comes to pass, Amelia's world is thrown into chaos. And those around her begin to wonder if she's not the seer of dark portents, but the cause.

This book takes place in 1889 which I think will be fascinating! It sounds like a great book and I hope I can buy it soon!

What book are you waiting on this Wednesday?
