Waiting on Wednesday 4/28

Wednesday, April 28, 2010




Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and spotlights upcoming novels we just can't wait for! We all know there are a ton of great books coming out this year, but this week, I'm particularly excited for...

Title: Folly
Author: Marthe Jocelyn
Release Date: May 11, 2010






Three fates intertwine in this moving and passionate love story set in Victorian London.

Mary Finn: country girl, maid to a lord in London

Caden Tucker: liar, scoundrel, and heart's delight

James Nelligan: age six, tossed into a herd of boys

When Mary Finn falls into the arms of handsome Caden Tucker, their frolic changes the course of her life. What possesses her? She's been a girl of common sense until now. Mary's tale alternates with that of young James Nelligan, a new boy in an enormous foundling home.

I love books set in historic times, and I love books with stories that intertwine until a parallel is drawn between all the characters. I think this book sounds amazing - and entertaining - and I have to say that the cover is a bit haunting. I love how dark it is. This is a definite must-read for me! What are you waiting on this week?

  6. The only thing I would not like about this book is the the scondrel. It always upsets me when nice poor girls get mixed up with men like that. Still I guess that is where the conflict is. I will be interested to see how you like it so I will look for your review.
