Congratulations to Saundra Mitchell, for today is the release date for her novel THE SPRINGSWEET!
Amazon description: Heartbroken over the tragic death of her fiancé, 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 the follow-up book to THE VESPERTINE which Saundra worked on during YES! GRAPEMO! (and was so generous with her teasers!) and also the book I'm currently reading. How lucky am I to get to read them in quick succession?? TOTALLY lucky!
Best of luck to you, Saundra! xox
