Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for. 
The Mirk and Midnight Hour 
by Jane Nickerson
hitting shelves March 14, 2014 from Random House
Jane Nickerson's second novel, also set in the "Strands" world, is based on the Scottish 'Ballad of Tam Lin,' and is set in Mississippi during the Civil War. Violet Dancey, a 17-year-old whose father has left to fight in the Civil War, is forced to confront Thomas, a hurt Union solider near her home. She must decide how to approach the enemy--and how to deal with her growing attraction to him.
My thoughts: Loved Jane Nickerson's debut Strands of Bronze and Gold, so I'm excited to hear about this book!  I'm sure it will be another beautifully done historical tale!


  1. I am desperate to read Strands but haven't gotten the chance. This one sounds really good too. Very appealing to me. Thanks for introducing me to it :)

  2. I still need to read Strands of Bronze and Gold but this sounds really good too. I am not as familiar with Tam Lin.

  3. I haven't read Strands of Bronze and Gold yet but I'm glad there's another one already on the way :)

    My WOW: http://www.bookythoughtsandme.com/waiting-on-wednesday-4/

  4. What a gorgeous cover! I haven't read any of the authors books but I've heard they're great. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I still need to read the author's debut, but this one sounds fabulous as well. Fantastic WoW choice! :)

  6. Not sure this is my kind of book (generally not fond of things to do with wars) BUT I do love the cover and have heard good things about the author - so I might give it a go! Thanks for sharing :).

  7. This one's new to me. I haven't read Strands yet, but it doesn't sound like you'd need to. I love the cover. Great pick!
