Waiting on Wednesday (110)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme to discuss upcoming books we can't wait to get our hands on. Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine  

This week, I'm waiting on:

The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley
Release date: June 4, 2013

Description from Goodreads:

Nicola Marter was born with a gift: when she touches an object, she sometimes glimpses those who have owned it before. When the gallery she works in receives a wooden carving she can see the object’s history and knows that it was named after the Firebird, the mythical bird that inspires an old Russian fairytale and was once owned by Russia’s famed Empress Catherine. 

Nicola’s investigation into the Firebird’s origin draws her into the 1715 world of Anna Logan and leads her on a quest through Scotland, France and Russia, unearthing a tale of love and sacrifice, of courage and redemption.

I loved The Winter Sea and really enjoyed Susanna Kearsley's other books that I've read so I am excited about this one. It will be interesting to read about Russia as well as Scotland (where a lot of her books are set) and France.

  1. I'm not very familiar with Russian history so this glimpse at a different time sounds really interesting. Also what a great gift to have when you work in a gallery!

  3. I've heard good things about Kearsley and I have a copy of The Winter Sea, I just haven't gotten around to reading it yet! I love that a lot of her books are set in Scotland- very cool! Thanks for bringing this book to my attention. Great pick, Christina!

  4. I'm currently reading a book with a similar concept: Hanging by a Thread. Here the girl gets visions when she touches a person's clothes. :) I'm liking the concept :)
