Waiting on Wednesday (100): The Springsweet by Saundra Mitchell

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The Springsweet by Saundra Mitchell 
Publisher: Harcourt Children's Books
Publish Date:April 17, 2012

Publisher's Description
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.

* This is from the author of The Vespertine, a wonderful historical fantasy (and this is a companion to The Vespertine).  This one sounds right up her alley and I love the very different storyline.- Jessica
