Waiting on Wednesday (144)

Aug 26, 2015

is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine that 
showcases upcoming releases people are very much anticipating.

I only heard about this book because I saw a few people talking about it on Twitter and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. And I have to say, I'm intrigued. The Civil War era is compelling, and the romance sounds like it will be sweet and swoony and fantastic to read. And it's inspired by Wuthering Heights? I mean, you already had me with the description of the romance, but sheesh--Rachel wants.

In a small town on the brink of the Civil War, Catrina finds a man making strange patterns in her family’s sorghum crop. He’s mad with fever, naked, and strikingly beautiful. He has no memory of who he is or what he’s done before Catrina found him in Stone Field. But that doesn’t bother Catrina because she doesn’t like thinking about the things she’s done before either.

Catrina and Stonefield fall passionately, dangerously, in love. All they want is to live with each other, in harmony with the land and away from Cat’s protective brother, the new fanatical preacher, and the neighbors who are scandalized by their relationship. But Stonefield can’t escape the truth about who he is, and the conflict tearing apart the country demands that everyone take a side before the bloodbath reaches their doorstep.
Inspired by Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights, Stone Field is a passionate and atmospheric story of how violence and vengeance pervert the human spirit, and how hatred can be transcended by love. 

Are you waiting on a retelling of sorts this week?

  5. This ones new to me but it's definitely going in the TBR. Withering Heights is one of my all-time favorite books and I LOVE the romance in it. Anything inspired by that I am on board for. Thanks for sharing!
