Waiting on Wednesday - Drought

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Drought by Pam Bachorz
Publisher: EgmontUSA
Publication Date: January 11, 2011

Summary from Goodreads: Ruby Prosser dreams of escaping the Congregation and the early-nineteenth century lifestyle that’s been practiced since the community was first enslaved.

She plots to escape the vicious Darwin West, his cruel Overseers, and the daily struggle to gather the life-prolonging Water that keeps the Congregants alive and gives Darwin his wealth and power. But if Ruby leaves, the Congregation will die without the secret ingredient that makes the Water special: her blood.

So she stays.

But when Ruby meets Ford, the new Overseer who seems barely older than herself, her desire for freedom is too strong. He’s sympathetic, irresistible, forbidden—and her only access to the modern world. Escape with Ford would be so simple, but can Ruby risk the terrible price, dooming the only world she’s ever known?


Last year I read and loved Pam Bachorz's book Candor, it's about brainwashing and living in the "perfect" community and a boy named Oscar Banks.  When I heard that she had another book in the works, I was very excited :-)  Drought sounds like it could be the perfect mix or creepy and thought provoking.  Plus, look at that cover...just amazing!

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
