Waiting on Wednesday: Chime

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme held by Jill at Breaking the Spine to feature upcoming books that we can't wait to get our hands on. 
Title: Chime   
Author: Franny Billingsley 
Publisher: Dial 
Date of Release: March 17, 2011 

Goodreads Description: Before Briony's stepmother died, she made sure Briony blamed herself for all the family's hardships. Now Briony has worn her guilt for so long it's become a second skin. She often escapes to the swamp, where she tells stories to the Old Ones, the spirits who haunt the marshes. But only witches can see the Old Ones, and in her village, witches are sentenced to death. Briony lives in fear her secret will be found out, even as she believes she deserves the worst kind of punishment. Then Eldric comes along with his golden lion eyes and mane of tawny hair. He's as natural as the sun, and treats her as if she's extraordinary. And everything starts to change. As many secrets as Briony has been holding, there are secrets even she doesn't know.

Why am I waiting? I love the paranormal genre but haven't actually read many books about witches. Also, besides rooting for a well-developed relationship between Eldric and Briony, I can't wait to find out what secrets are going to come out into the open and how they'll affect the characters.
