Waiting On Wednesday: A Brief History of Montmaray

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

A Brief History of Montmaray by Michelle Cooper book cover
A Brief History of Montmaray
by Michelle Cooper
Publication Date: October 13

From the publisher:

"Sophie Fitzosborne lives in a crumbling castle in the tiny island kingdom of Montmaray with her eccentric and impoverished royal family. When she receives a journal for her sixteenth birthday, Sophie decides to chronicle day-to-day life on the island. But this is 1936, and the news that trickles in from the mainland reveals a world on the brink of war. The politics of Europe seem far away from their remote island—until two German officers land a boat on Montmaray. And then suddenly politics become very personal indeed."

Check out this website that includes reviews, reading guides, and historical background to the novel.

Historical Fiction is my fav genre! I am just waiting for a few books to arrive on my doorsteps! And of course Steig Larrson's 3rd book in the Millennium Trilogy!

This sounds like a cook book, and I love the cover. Historical fiction is one of my fave genres.
