Waiting On Wednesday||❤

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

This Week is......
Under The Painted Sky
By Stacey Lee
Publication Date: March 15th 2015

Missouri, 1849: Samantha dreams of moving back to New York to be a professional musician—not an easy thing if you’re a girl, and harder still if you’re Chinese. But a tragic accident dashes any hopes of fulfilling her dream, and instead, leaves her fearing for her life. With the help of a runaway slave named Annamae, Samantha flees town for the unknown frontier. But life on the Oregon Trail is unsafe for two girls, so they disguise themselves as Sammy and Andy, two boys headed for the California gold rush. Sammy and Andy forge a powerful bond as they each search for a link to their past, and struggle to avoid any unwanted attention. But when they cross paths with a band of cowboys, the light-hearted troupe turn out to be unexpected allies. With the law closing in on them and new setbacks coming each day, the girls quickly learn that there are not many places to hide on the open trail.

This beautifully written debut is an exciting adventure and heart-wrenching survival tale. But above all else, it’s a story about perseverance and trust that will restore your faith in the power of friendship.

Why I Am Waiting This Wednesday?

I love how it set in the 19th century and is not the typical type of musician who wants to winter the Xfactor. As always I say I do like the cover and the font of the title. Last but not least, cowboys? I'm in!!

Keep Reading,
(I am so sorry for not posting this week, too many observational drawings and still lifes to be set up!)

  1. This one looks good! I'm adding it to my list. It reminds me a little of a book I just finished, I Shall Be Near To You, in which a woman disguises herself as a man in order to be a soldier in the US Civil War. If it sounds like something you are interested in, stop by my blog and read Monday's post to learn more about it.
