Author: Cat Winters
Genre: young adult, historical fiction, paranormal, fantasy, urban fantasy
Expected Publication: October 14, 2014
Olivia Mead is a headstrong, independent girl—a suffragist—in an age that prefers its girls to be docile. It’s 1900 in Oregon, and Olivia’s father, concerned that she’s headed for trouble, convinces a stage mesmerist to try to hypnotize the rebellion out of her. But the hypnotist, an intriguing young man named Henri Reverie, gives her a terrible gift instead: she’s able to see people’s true natures, manifesting as visions of darkness and goodness, while also unable to speak her true thoughts out loud. These supernatural challenges only make Olivia more determined to speak her mind, and so she’s drawn into a dangerous relationship with the hypnotist and his mysterious motives, all while secretly fighting for the rights of women. Winters breathes new life into history once again with an atmospheric, vividly real story, including archival photos and art from the period throughout.

I’ve read Cat Winter’s In the Shadow of Blackbirds and really enjoyed it. After hearing her new novel, I got really excited about it. Together with The Cure for Dreaming’s really interesting synopsis and beautiful cover, I think it’s definitely worth the reading (and getting excited for!).
