Summary from Goodreads:
In early-nineteenth century Scotland, sixteen-year-old Josie, an orphan, is sent to live with an aunt and uncle on the rocky, stormy northwest coast. Everything and everyone in her new surroundings, including her relatives, is sinister, threatening, and mysterious. She’s told that Eli, the young man she’s attracted to, is forbidden to her, but not why. Spirited, curious, and determined, Josie sets out to learn the village’s secrets and discovers evil, fueled by heartless greed, as well as a ghostly presence eager for revenge. An author’s note gives the historical inspiration for this story.
Indeed, I am ready. Historical fiction, ghosts, and Scotland? Hell yes. Isn’t it pretty? Look at the pretty cover… it’s so gorgeous. The blue, the green.. ugh. I’m dying. I can’t wait for this to come out so that I can read it!
