Review: Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson

17564519Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson

Publisher: Greenwillow Books

Release Date: September 22, 2015

Genre: YA Historical Fiction

Gold is in my blood, in my breath, even in the flecks in my eyes.

Lee Westfall has a strong, loving family. She has a home she loves and a loyal steed. She has a best friend—who might want to be something more.

She also has a secret.

Lee can sense gold in the world around her. Veins deep in the earth. Small nuggets in a stream. Even gold dust caught underneath a fingernail. She has kept her family safe and able to buy provisions, even through the harshest winters. But what would someone do to control a girl with that kind of power? A person might murder for it.

When everything Lee holds dear is ripped away, she flees west to California—where gold has just been discovered. Perhaps this will be the one place a magical girl can be herself. If she survives the journey.

Hello fellow book friends! I recently (as in a while ago) finished Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson, and discovered a truly great book! It is jam packed with historical aspects and lovely characters. I felt like I was traveling to California right along with them, experiencing everything that they did and feeling the things that they felt. Carson’s writing is elegant yet brutally honest, and it makes for a great historical read!
