every fiber of my being, I yearned to be normal. To glide through my
days at Iverson without incident. But I’d have to face the fact that my
life was about to unfold in a very, very different way than I’d ever
envisioned. Normal would become forever out of reach.”
Lora Jones has always known that she’s different. On the outside, she
appears to be an ordinary sixteen-year-old girl. Yet Lora’s been keeping
a heartful of secrets: She hears songs that no one else can hear,
dreams vividly of smoke and flight, and lives with a mysterious voice
inside her that insists she’s far more than what she seems.
England, 1915. Raised in an orphanage in a rough corner of London, Lora
quickly learns to hide her unique abilities and avoid attention. Then,
much to her surprise, she is selected as the new charity student at
Iverson, an elite boarding school on England’s southern coast. Iverson’s
eerie, gothic castle is like nothing Lora has ever seen. And the two
boys she meets there will open her eyes and forever change her destiny.
Jesse is the school’s groundskeeper—a beautiful boy who recognizes Lora
for who and what she truly is. Armand is a darkly handsome and arrogant
aristocrat who harbors a few closely guarded secrets of his own. Both
hold the answers to her past. One is the key to her future. And both
will aim to win her heart. As danger descends upon Iverson, Lora must
harness the powers she’s only just begun to understand, or else lose
everything she dearly loves.
Filled with lush atmosphere, thrilling romance, and ancient magic, The Sweetest Dark brilliantly captures a rich historical era while unfolding an enchanting love story that defies time.
I really like the cover of this book and was really intrigued by the title and the summary, we will have to wait and see what it is like when it comes out!! What are you waiting for this week?
