Waiting on Wednesday (25)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it is a way to show off the books you can't wait to be released!!

This week I chose:

"Cate of the Lost Colony"

by Lisa M. Klein
Bloomsbury
Release Date: Oct 12, 2010

The following description is from Goodreads.com


The greatest unsolved mystery of American history--what happened to all the colonists who landed on Roanoke Island in 1587? This novel traces the fortunes and misfortunes of one Cate Archer, banished to Virginia by a jealous Queen Elizabeth because of her dalliance with Sir Walter Ralegh. What will be her fate in this dangerous New World?


I love historical fiction and this one is even based on truth! I can't wait to read more about this story, it sounds fascinating! The cover is so gorgeous, I love it!

What are you waiting for this week??

Ooh, the Roanoke mystery! It's a good historical dilemma to focus a book on. I'm waiting on Cheat the Grave by Vicki Pettersson...it came out today, but I'm waiting for Amazon to deliver it. :-)

I have an award for you here: http://steelergirl83.blogspot.com/2010/05/awards-day.html

XOXO~ Renee
