Waiting on Wednesday #63: Love's Awakening

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're
eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Love's Awakening by Laura Frantz
Revell-September 15, 2013

About the Book
Ellie Ballantyne, youngest child of Silas and Eden, has left finishing school. But back at her family home in Pittsburgh, Ellie finds that her parents are away on a long trip and her siblings don't seem to want her to stay. When she opens a day school for young ladies, she begins tutoring the incorrigible daughter of the enemy Turlock clan. The Turlocks are slaveholders and whiskey magnates, envious of the powerful Ballantynes and suspicious of their abolitionist leanings. As Ellie becomes increasingly tangled with the Turlocks, she finds herself falling in love with an impossible future--and Jack Turlock, a young man striving to free himself from his family's violent legacy. How can she betray her family and side with the enemy? And will Jack ever allow her into his world?

Why I Want It
 I loved Love's Reckoning as well as the other Laura Frantz book I read so I'm really looking forward to reading this story!

Laura Frantz is an awesome author, so this one will probably be good. Plus the cover- that dress is pretty!
I haven't read the first in the series yet, but it's on my "to read" list.
