The clue that you are VERY behind on your book keeper tracker of-er list? When you have to search for an hour to find a book for WoW. My Amazon wishlist, which acts as a precursor to my Goodreads account, is usually the go to, to see what books I have waiting to be read, but are not out yet. I have been busy or lazy, you decide. Although maybe this is the universes method of intervention because I can never just add ONE book to my Amazon wishlist (darn recommendations).
The Wicked and the Just by J. Anderson Coats
Scheduled to be released:
April 17, 2012
Why I'm waiting:
If you haven't read here before, you might not know that I'm horrible about judging a book by it's cover. It is a nasty tendency and the main reason why I picked The Wicked and the Just. I don't read inside covers or book summaries online, I like to be surprised. I do know this book is Historical Fiction, though, and that is one of my favorite genres to read.
This is Ms. Anderson Coats debut novel and I'm always intrigued by an author's first book. It is motivation to make me purchase a copy, rather than pilfer it from my library (I don't steal, I just like that word). I'd like to hope that little ole me purchasing a copy of an author's book goes a long way. Someday I hope someone would extend the same courtesy to my first book. Good luck Ms. Anderson Coats!
Cecily longs to return to her beloved Edgeley Hall, where her father was lord of the manor. But now he has completely ruined her life. He is moving them to Caernarvon, in occupied Wales, where he can get a place for almost nothing, since the king needs good strong Englishmen to keep down the vicious Welshmen. At least Cecily will get to be the lady of the house at last—if all goes well.
Gwenhwyfar knows all about that house. Once she dreamed of being the lady there herself, until the English came and destroyed the lives of everyone she knows. Now Gwenhwyfar must wait hand and foot on this bratty English girl who has taken what should have been hers.
While Cecily struggles to find her place amongst the snobby English landowners, Gwenhwyfar struggles just to survive. And meanwhile the Welsh are not as conquered as they seem. Outside the city walls of Caernarvon, tensions are rising ever higher—until finally they must reach the breaking point.
