Waiting on Wednesday: Father of Lies

Waiting on Wednesday recognizes that we as bookies pine for books. This post is about what I am impatiently waiting for right now. It was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week I am excited about the February 8th release of Father of Lies by Ann Turner. A master of historical fiction, Ann Turner is turning her eye towards the Salem witch trials in this new book.

Truth or Lies?

Lidda knew, with a clarity that was like a candle in a dark room, that all had changed; something was loosed in the village—Devil or not—and they would pay for it, every last man, woman, and child.

Fourteen-year-old Lidda has always known she was different. She longs to escape Salem Village and its stifling rules—to be free to dance, to sing, to live as she chooses. But when a plague of accusations descends on the village and witch fever erupts, L idda begins to realize that she feels and sees things that others can't, or won't. But how will she expose the truth without being hung as a witch herself?

Gripping and emotional, Ann Turner's retelling of the Salem witch trials captures one girl's brave soul-searching amidst a backdrop of fear and blame.

From Goodreads

Every once in a while I get in the mood for a really good paranormal, historical fiction & this one seems so perfect! You may recall how much I enjoyed Time of the Witches and Father of Lies seems like it will have the same appeal. I'm really looking forward to reading this book & hope that my library decides to pick it up. What are you waiting on this week?
