Waiting on Wednesday 16 - Faithful by Janet Fox

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking The Spine. This week's choice is:

Faithful by Janet Fox - Release Date: May 13, 2010

Sixteen-year-old Maggie Bennet’s life is in tatters. Her mother has disappeared, and is presumed dead.
The next thing she knows, her father has dragged Maggie away from their elegant Newport home, off on some mad excursion to Yellowstone in Montana.

Torn from the only life she’s ever known, away from her friends, from society, and verging on no prospects, Maggie is furious and devastated by her father’s betrayal. But when she arrives, she finds herself drawn to the frustratingly stubborn, handsome Tom Rowland, the son of a park geologist, and to the wild romantic beauty of Yellowstone itself.

And as Tom and the promise of freedom capture Maggie’s heart, Maggie is forced to choose between who she is and who she wants to be.


Faithful is Janet Fox's debut YA novel. Is it on your Debut Authors Challenge List? I would probably buy this book for the cover alone, but it also sounds like a great mystery set in a time period you don't see very often. Can't wait to read it!
