Description from Goodreads:
Sailing aboard her father’s trade ship is all seventeen-year-old Camille Rowen has ever wanted. But as a girl of society in 1855 San Francisco, her future is set: marry a man she doesn’t love, or condemn herself and her father to poverty.

On her final voyage before the wedding, the stormy arms of the Tasman Sea claim her father, and a terrible family secret is revealed. A secret intertwined with a fabled map, the mother Camille has long believed dead, and an ancient stone that wields a dangerous—and alluring—magic.

The only person Camille can depend on is Oscar, a handsome young sailor whom she is undeniably drawn to. Torn between trusting her instincts and keeping her promises to her father, Camille embarks on a perilous quest into the Australian wilderness to find the enchanted stone. As she and Oscar elude murderous bushrangers and unravel Camille’s father’s lies, they come closer to making the ultimate decision of who—and what—matters most.

Beautifully written and feverishly paced, Everlasting is an unforgettable journey of passion, secrecy, and adventure.

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  It spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

This one does sound very interesting! I'm still trying to decide if I like the cover or not :). LOok forward to reading your review of it!

Megan said...

This sounds excellent. The synopsis makes me think a little bit of A Great and Terrible Beauty, which I loved. A little history plus a little magic make Megan a happy girl. I'll be waiting with you! ;-)

Emily - The cover reminds me a bit of Disney's The Little Mermaid. :)

Megan - I definitely agree that magic + history = fun! :)

Ladybug said...

I love the sound of Everlasting and it do also remind me of The Little Mermaid. Makes me think of the song Kiss the Girl from that boat trip :)

Jennifer G. said...

Oh, and I don't know if it's too late to sign up, but there's an ARC tour for this going on over at Traveling Arc Tours.

Violet said...

Ladybug- Now I have Kiss the Girl stuck in my head! *sings off key* "There you see her, sitting there across the way..."

Jennifer G.- Thank you for the Traveling ARC tour information. :)

Ladybug said...

LOL sorry for that, Violet!

Violet said...

Haha! No worries, Ladybug! I like that song a lot and my family is used to hearing me sing Disney songs off key, so no one was too traumatized. ;-)
