“There’s not a hint of regret or shame in his face. No fear of discovery in his voice. And maybe that’s what will keep me safe, for now. I can’t let on that I know what he did.”
Rae Carson is one of my favorite authors. Her Fire and Thorns series is so amazing, I really ought to reread them and put proper reviews up on the blog. Carson’s newest book Walk on Earth a Stranger combines fantasy and historical fiction in a unique new series.
From my review:
“It’s 1849 and the California Gold Rush has just begun. Families and individuals everywhere are packing up and heading west in hopes of finding fortune. For Leah “Lee” Westfall, leaving her family homestead in Georgia is unthinkable. But when a tragedy leaves her orphaned and in the hands of the potential perpetrator, she has no choice but to flee. Disguised as a boy, Lee embarks on a dangerous journey across the nation, holding close another secret, her ability to sense gold. Not knowing who to trust, every step Lee takes has the potential to overthrow her plans, returning her to a life that promises nothing but misery.” See my full review here.
