Waiting On Wednesday (36)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. This is a once-a-week look at the book(s) I am anxiously awaiting release.

"Mistwalker" by Saundra Mitchell

This book is to be released February 4th, 2014. It is a stand-alone novel.

When Willa Dixon's brother dies on the family lobster boat, her father forbids Willa from stepping foot on the deck again. With her family suffering, she'll do anything to help out--even visiting the Grey Man.

Everyone in her small Maine town knows of this legendary spirit who haunts the lighthouse, controlling the fog and the fate of any vessel within his reach. But what Willa finds in the lighthouse isn't a spirit at all, but a young man trapped inside until he collects one thousand souls.

Desperate to escape his cursed existence, Grey tries to seduce Willa to take his place. With her life on land in shambles, will she sacrifice herself?

I have never really heard of a book similar to this one. Soul gathering, family obligations, and the possibility of love in the face of an enemy? Sounds like a fun read to me. I have never read anything by Saundra Mitchell so this would be a new experience all around for me.

What are you "Waiting On" this Wednesday?
