Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson

Series: The Gold Seer Trilogy, Book 1

Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Historical Fiction, Romance


The first book in a new trilogy from acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Rae Carson. A young woman with the magical ability to sense the presence of gold must flee her home, taking her on a sweeping and dangerous journey across Gold Rush–era America.
Lee Westfall has a secret. She can sense the presence of gold in the world around her. Veins deep beneath the earth, pebbles in the river, nuggets dug up from the forest floor. The buzz of gold means warmth and life and home—until everything is ripped away by a man who wants to control her. Left with nothing, Lee disguises herself as a boy and takes to the trail across the country. Gold was discovered in California, and where else could such a magical girl find herself, find safety? Rae Carson, author of the acclaimed Girl of Fire and Thorns trilogy, dazzles with this new fantasy that subverts both our own history and familiar fantasy tropes.
Walk on Earth a Stranger, the first book in this new trilogy, introduces—as only Rae Carson can—a strong heroine, a perilous road, a fantastical twist, and a slow-burning romance. Includes a map and author’s note on historical research.

    … Oh no. Another one. Another book I badly want to read while time is slipping through my fingers. Thanks for the great pick – I’ll put it on my “Catching Up” List. :D … Seriously, Bookworms should be immortal. So many books we could read *-*

    I’m EXTREMELY excited for this one! I love historical books, plus the MC can sense the presence of gold… Yup, I’m in. And that cover is a huge bonus. ;)
