Waiting on Wednesday (92)

Waiting on Wednesday
is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine
 that showcases upcoming releases 
that people are very much anticipating.

So yeah, I'll have an interview with this author on the blog in September, but that's not why I'm waiting on this book. First off, COOL COVER. And secondly, this sounds similar to The Village and it may be kind of cultish and it's set in the past and I like a creepy-sounding story, so I'm in!

Title: Winterkill
Author: Kate A. Boorman
Publisher: Amulet Books
Publishing Date: September 9, 2014
Pages: 319

Emmeline knows she’s not supposed to explore the woods outside her settlement. The enemy that wiped out half her people lurks there, attacking at night and keeping them isolated in an unfamiliar land with merciless winters. Living with the shame of her grandmother’s insubordination, Emmeline has learned to keep her head down and her quick tongue silent.

When the settlement leader asks for her hand in marriage, it’s an opportunity for Emmeline to wash the family slate clean—even if she has eyes for another. But before she’s forced into an impossible decision, her dreams urge her into the woods, where she uncovers a path she can’t help but follow. The trail leads to a secret that someone in the village will kill to protect. Her grandmother followed the same path and paid the price. If Emmeline isn’t careful, she will be next.
