Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
Expected Date: October 3, 2017
Love grows such strange things.
For nearly a century, the Nomeolvides women have tended the grounds of La Pradera, the lush estate gardens that enchant guests from around the world. They’ve also hidden a tragic legacy: if they fall in love too deeply, their lovers vanish. But then, after generations of vanishings, a strange boy appears in the gardens.
The boy is a mystery to Estrella, the Nomeolvides girl who finds him, and to her family, but he’s even more a mystery to himself; he knows nothing more about who he is or where he came from than his first name. As Estrella tries to help Fel piece together his unknown past, La Pradera leads them to secrets as dangerous as they are magical in this stunning exploration of love, loss, and family.
Ever since reading The Weight of Feathers, Anna-Marie McLemore has become an auto-buy author for me. Her prose is exquisite and she writes magical realism at its finest. Wild Beauty sounds like another stunner full of love, culture, and whimsy. I cannot wait to get my hands on this gorgeous book!
