Waiting on Wednesday: The Uninvited

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

The Uninvited by Cat Winters
Pub. Date: August 11, 2015



Goodreads says, "Twenty-five year old Ivy Rowan rises from her bed after being struck by the flu, only to discover the world has been torn apart in just a few short days. But Ivy’s life-long gift—or curse—remains. For she sees the uninvited ones—ghosts of loved ones who appear to her, unasked, unwelcomed, for they always herald impending death. On that October evening in 1918 she sees the spirit of her grandmother, rocking in her mother’s chair. An hour later, she learns her younger brother and father have killed a young German out of retaliation for the death of Ivy’s older brother Billy in the Great War. Horrified, she leaves home, to discover the flu has caused utter panic and the rules governing society have broken down. Ivy is drawn into this new world of jazz, passion, and freedom, where people live for the day, because they could be stricken by nightfall. But as her ‘uninvited guests’ begin to appear to her more often, she knows her life will be torn apart once more, but Ivy has no inkling of the other-worldly revelations about to unfold."
Ever since I read The Cure for Dreaming, I have been dying to read more from Cat Winters. I heard In the Shadow of Blackbirds is amazing (still have to read it!) and this book sounds pretty great as well.  I love how Winters writes historical fiction with a twist.  What do you guys think?

  1. I haven't read any of her books yet but this does sound interesting. I like the mix of historical with a little paranormal. It reminds me of Delia's Shadow which is set around the same time and deals with ghosts.

  3. I've never heard of her, but ghost stories are always a must. Sounds a bit like "Second Glance" by Jodi Picoult which I absolutely loved.
