For review: Two debuts from Llewellyn.
Words and Their Meanings by Kate Bassett. 354 p. Flux/ Llewellyn Worldwide Ltd., Sept. 2014. 9780738740294.
Publisher synopsis: Anna O’Mally is a born writer—gifted, perceptive, headed for the stars. Or she was, until the tragic death of her uncle Joe. He was barely older than Anna herself, and she worshipped the ground he walked on. Best of all, Anna got to live in the glow of knowing that she was the most important person in his world, too.
Sweet Unrest by Lisa Maxwell. 324 p. Flux/ Llewellyn Worldwide, October, 2014. 9780738740812.
Publisher synopsis: For as long as she can remember, Lucy Aimes has been plagued by a dark, recurring dream of drowning. But when her family moves to an old plantation outside New Orleans, she starts having intense new dreams, vivid scenes of a bygone era filled with people she shouldn't know but does. Searching for answers to her haunting visions, Lucy reluctantly descends into the city's mystical culture.
