Waiting on Wednesday: The Pursuit of Tamsen Littlejohn

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. It is a fun way to feature the up and coming releases you are looking forward to.

Waiting on:
Title: The Pursuit of Tamsen Littlejohn
Publisher: Water Brooke Press
Publication Date: April 29th, 2014

Synopsis:
Western North Carolina, 1787 ~ To escape a threatening stepfather and an unwanted marriage, Tamsen Littlejohn enlists the aid of Jesse Bird, a frontiersman she barely knows, to spirit her away from Morganton, North Carolina, west beyond the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Trouble pursues, as the two men intent on seeing her recovered prove relentless in their hunt. Trouble awaits in the form of a divided frontier community. Across the mountains the State of Franklin has been declared, yet many settlers remain loyal to North Carolina. Chaos reigns, thwarting Tamsen and Jesse’s hastily cobbled plan to keep her safe.

With her pursuers ever nearing, the region in turmoil, neighbors grown suspicious of her presence, Tamsen’s safety is soon put in greater jeopardy. Gaining the freedom she longs for will mean running yet again, to the most unlikely refuge imaginable—the Cherokees, a people balanced on the knife edge of war.
Why I'm Waiting:
I loved Lori Benton's debut novel Burning Sky. The story and the research she put into her story was just fantastic! I can't wait to read more stories by her.

What are you waiting on this week?
