Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where bloggers share what books they are eagerly anticipating.
I was making my way through reviews earlier this week when I stumbled across this little gem. The cover doesn't jump out at me, but the reviews did. Historical, mystery, suspense...it sounded brilliant!

Summary from Goodreads.com:17-year-old Verity Boone expects a warm homecoming when she returns to Catawissa, Pennsylvania, in 1867, pledged to marry a man she has never met. Instead, she finds a father she barely knows and a future husband with whom she apparently has nothing in common. One truly horrifying surprise awaits her: the graves of her mother and aunt are enclosed in iron cages outside the local cemetery. Nobody in town will explain why, but Verity hears rumors of buried treasure and witchcraft. Perhaps the cages were built to keep grave robbers out . . . or to keep the women in. Determined to understand, Verity finds herself in a life-and-death struggle with people she trusted.
Inspired by a pair of real caged graves in present-day Catawissa, this historical YA novel weaves mystery, romance, and action into a suspenseful drama with human greed and passion at its core.
So how about you? What is your WoW pick of the week?
