Summary from Goodreads:
The first book in a new trilogy from acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Rae Carson. A young woman with the magical ability to sense the presence of gold must flee her home, taking her on a sweeping and dangerous journey across Gold Rush–era America.

Lee Westfall has a secret. She can sense the presence of gold in the world around her. Veins deep beneath the earth, pebbles in the river, nuggets dug up from the forest floor. The buzz of gold means warmth and life and home—until everything is ripped away by a man who wants to control her. Left with nothing, Lee disguises herself as a boy and takes to the trail across the country. Gold was discovered in California, and where else could such a magical girl find herself, find safety? Rae Carson, author of the acclaimed Girl of Fire and Thorns trilogy, dazzles with this new fantasy that subverts both our own history and familiar fantasy tropes.

Walk on Earth a Stranger, the first book in this new trilogy, introduces—as only Rae Carson can—a strong heroine, a perilous road, a fantastical twist, and a slow-burning romance. Includes a map and author’s note on historical research.



Thoughts:

I been hearing quiet a number of great reviews on this book and the author particularly on Goodreads. The author apparently wrote 'Fire and Thorn' Trilogy and has a great record of good stories. In addition to that, the cover is really beautiful. 

You can definitely see a lot of thought went into that. It's original and outside the box. I mean who would of giving the main character the ability to sense gold. Genius.  
I can't wait! 

Fantasy + Gold Rush + Magic= AWESOMENESS!!!
