Waiting on Wednesday: The Invisible World by Suzanne Weyn

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Suzanne Weyn brings her trademark mix of history, romance, and the supernatural to the Salem Witch Trials.

For 15-year-old Sarah Owen, having a scientist father is a blessing and a curse. He doesn’t bat an eye at her pyschic abilities, since he researches them; and she knows more about the invisible worlds of microbes, electricity, and gravity than most girls in the 17th Century.

But when Sarah travels to the Americas with her father to do more research, she’s shipwrecked and lands for a time on the Gullah Islands. Later, when the plantation owners find her and send her north to Salem, Massachusetts, her abilities get her into trouble. Can Sarah save herself when she’s accused of witchcraft? Or will she and the rest of the innocents she’s accused with be found guilty…and sentenced to hanging?

Salem. Witch. Trials. That’s pretty much all I needed to see to be totally excited about this one. Not in love with the cover but at least she’s not wearing a fancy dress. Expected publication is August 28, 2012.
