Waiting on Wednesday (22)


This week I'm waiting on...


The Fool's Girl by Celia Rees

"A lush, epic historical novel by bestseller Celia Rees, with an added Shakespearean twist.
Young and beautiful Violetta may be of royal blood, but her kingdom is in shambles when she arrives in London on a mysterious mission. Her journey has been long and her adventures many, but it is not until she meets the playwright William Shakespeare that she gets to tell the entire story from beginning to end. Violetta and her comic companion, Feste, have come in search of an ancient holy relic that the evil Malvolio has stolen from their kingdom. But where will their remarkable quest—and their most unusual story—lead? In classic Celia Rees style, it is an engrossing journey, full of political intrigue, danger, and romance.
This wholly original story is spun from Shakespeare’s
Twelfth Night, and includes both folly and suspense that would make the Bard proud." Summary Courtesy of Good Reads

I loved Sovay by Celia Rees and I love historical fiction, so I'm really excited to read this one!

Release date: July 20, 2010
