Waiting on Springsweet

Hurrah! I'm looking forward to this book - I kind of wish that we had more of Amelia's story, but I'm interested to see what adventures her cousin Zora will get up to.

The Springsweet
by Saundra Mitchell
Harcourt Children's Books
April 2012

Heartbroken over the tragic death of her fiancĂ©, seventeen-year-old Zora Stewart leaves Baltimore for the frontier town of West Glory, Oklahoma, to help her young widowed aunt keep her homestead going. There she discovers that she possesses the astonishing ability to sense water under the parched earth. When her aunt hires her out as a “springsweet” to advise other settlers where to dig their wells, Zora feels the burden of holding the key to something so essential to survival in this unforgiving land.

Even more, she finds herself longing for love the way the prairie thirsts for water.
Maybe, in the wildness of the territories, Zora can finally move beyond simply surviving and start living.
