Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases you are eagerly anticipating.

Title: Ladies in Waiting
Author: Laura L. Sullivan
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Release Date: May 8, 2012


From Goodreads:
Eliza dreams of writing plays for the king’s theater, where she will be admired for her wit rather than her father’s wealth. Beth is beautiful but poor, so she must marry well, despite her love for her childhood sweetheart.

Zabby comes to England to further her scientific studies—and ends up saving the life of King Charles II. Soon her friendship with the handsome king becomes a dangerous, impossible obsession. Though she knows she should stay away from the court, the queen needs ladies in waiting.

And so the three Elizabeths from very different walks of life find themselves at the center of the most scandal-filled court that England has ever seen.

***
I am a sucker for anything historical fiction, and Ladies in Waiting sounds right up my alley. I’m curious to see if or how the three Elizabeths come together in the book and how their stories intertwine.

  1. I don’t read too much historical fiction, but every time I do I always enjoy the story, so I’m thinking this one will be no different:) There’s just something fascinating about the royal court isn’t there? Awesome choice Tara!
