THE REVENANT by Sonia Gensler ARC Givwaway




There are so many things I loved about this book!

I loved the setting of the girls' boarding school in Indian country.
I loved the feel of the novel as it was so Libba Bray in the language.
I loved the romance as it gave just enough to keep me wanting more.
And most of all, I loved that the main character had a who subplot of her own that made her so much deeper of a character. The novel could have been an exceptional ghost story with a murder mystery twist. But instead, it was an exceptional ghost story with a murder mystery twist with a main character who had a BIG SECRET! Loved that. It was written masterfully and convincingly. It's really a book you don't want to miss!

And now you have the chance to win my ARC! Up for giveaway is

THE REVENANT by Sonia Gensler (Knopf/Random House, June 14, 2011)

From Amazon:

When Willie arrives in Indian Territory, she knows only one thing: no one can find out who she really is. To escape a home she doesn't belong in anymore, she assumes the name of a former classmate and accepts a teaching job at the Cherokee Female Seminary.

Nothing prepares her for what she finds there. Her pupils are the daughters of the Cherokee elite—educated and more wealthy than she, and the school is cloaked in mystery. A student drowned in the river last year, and the girls whisper that she was killed by a jealous lover. Willie's room is the very room the dead girl slept in. The students say her spirit haunts it.

Willie doesn't believe in ghosts, but when strange things start happening at the school, she isn't sure anymore. She's also not sure what to make of a boy from the nearby boys' school who has taken an interest in her—his past is cloaked in secrets. Soon, even she has to admit that the revenant may be trying to tell her something. . . .
