Hey ya’ll back at it again with another Waiting on Wednesday. If you don’t know WoW is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine. Give them a follow.

So if you don’t know I’m a huge Cat Winters fan. I just all that she writes. So it comes as no surprise that one of her books is the one that I’m waiting for. So without further ado. Here you go.




Cat Winter



From the author of The Uninvited comes a haunting historical novel with a compelling mystery at its core.  A young child psychologist steps off a train, her destination a foggy seaside town. There, she begins a journey causing her to question everything she believes about life, death, memories, and reincarnation.

In 1925, Alice Lind steps off a train in the rain-soaked coastal hamlet of Gordon Bay, Oregon. There, she expects to do nothing more difficult than administer IQ tests to a group of rural schoolchildren. A trained psychologist, Alice believes mysteries of the mind can be unlocked scientifically, but now her views are about to be challenged by one curious child.

Seven-year-old Janie O’Daire is a mathematical genius, which is surprising. But what is disturbing are the stories she tells: that her name was once Violet, she grew up in Kansas decades earlier, and she drowned at age nineteen. Alice delves into these stories, at first believing they’re no more than the product of the girl’s vast imagination.  But, slowly, Alice comes to the realization that Janie might indeed be telling a strange truth.

Alice knows the investigation may endanger her already shaky professional reputation, and as a woman in a field dominated by men she has no room for mistakes. But she is unprepared for the ways it will illuminate terrifying mysteries within her own past, and in the process, irrevocably change her life.

  1. This sounds really good! I read The Cure for Dreaming by her and wasn’t the biggest fan. But I’m not ready to write her off yet. I haven’t read In the Shadow of Blackbirds or The Steep and Thorny Way yet either but it’s on my shelf. Which is your favorite of her books?

    1. In the Shadow of Blackbirds, Haunting and atmospheric. Truly enjoyed that book the most. But I’m bias. Also enjoy The Uninvited by her even though it was a bit predictable and the plot was easy to figure out.

      Thanks for stopping by.
