This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
The Wedding Gift
By Marlen Suyapa Bodden
Publication Date: September 24
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 façade 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.

The synopsis sounds so good! I'll have to look out for this one.
I'll be honest and admit that I would never read something like that as it has tear jerker written allll over it.
Looks like an interesting read!

Hi Jill! First time to be here :) Sounds like a great book, will consider it in my list.
Have a great day!
Woah that sounds scandalous o-o not sure if Sarah sounds ungrateful or... I hope you enjoy it when it's out!
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! :)
WOW -- by the title alone, I would have never guessed the plot line. Sounds really good Jill.
Nice pick. Thanks for sharing :)
