"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Wedding Gift

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

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


The Wedding Gift
By Marlen Suyapa Bodden

Publication Date: September 24

From Amazon:

When prestigious plantation owner Cornelius Allen gives his daughter Clarissa’s hand in marriage, she takes with her a gift: Sarah—her slave and her half-sister. Raised by an educated mother, Clarissa is not a proper Southern belle she appears to be with ambitions of loving who she chooses and Sarah equally hides behind the fa├žade of being a docile house slave as she plots to escape. Both women bring these tumultuous secrets and desires with them to their new home, igniting events that spiral into a tale beyond what you ever imagined possible and it will leave you enraptured until the very end.

Woah that sounds scandalous o-o not sure if Sarah sounds ungrateful or... I hope you enjoy it when it's out!

Maria Behar said...

This is a FANTASTIC choice!! I don't normally read much historical fiction, but this one really sounds like a great read! It's sure to have lots of drama, and I love the idea of two sisters bucking the system the way these two obviously do. I sure hope Oprah takes notice of this one! Thanks for featuring it! :)
