Waiting on Wednesday: Sigrun's Secret

Because we all have something we're waiting for.

Sigrun's Secret by Marie-Louise Jensen

Their garments are black as night. They carry torches in their hands, darkness and anger in their hearts. They are coming.

When a dark family secret is exposed, Sigrun's peaceful life is shattered. Forced to pay for her parents' misdeeds, she finds herself exiled from all she knows - and from the boy she loves - for three long years. Yet more secrets lie ahead; not least the power Sigrun finds awakening in herself, seemingly passed to her from a mysterious amulet. Can she use her new-found gift to save herself and those around her from the dangers they face? And will true love wait until her return?

Originally waited for by Rebecca, and I couldn't help but agree with her.
