Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. I'm not a regular WoW poster, but I had to share this one.

The American Heiress by Daisy Goodwin

Add to Goodreads

About the Book: (from Goodreads) Beautiful, vivacious Cora Cash, the wealthiest debutante in America, is spirited away from the glamour and comfort of her Park Avenue mansion and suddenly finds herself Duchess of Wareham, mistress of Lulworth Castle, married to Ivo, the most eligible bachelor in England. As Cora is soon to discover, nothing in this strange new world is quite as it seems. Her handsome new husband is withdrawn and secretive; the English social scene is stuffed with pitfalls and traps; and there are increasingly dangerous forces at work, people who wish she'd never met Ivo in the first place. THE AMERICAN HEIRESS is a dazzling debut novel from Daisy Goodwin, whose brilliant new voice is reminiscent of Henry James, Edith Wharton, and Kate Morton

Why I Want It: Yes it's an adult novel, but it was in my Shelf-Awareness newsletter this week with a blurb that said "perfect for those suffering Downton Abbey withdrawl." And I'm totally having Downton Abbey withdrawl!! So I must read this book now!

What books are you waiting on?


  1. I am suffering terribly from Downton Abbey withdrawal! This book sounds great!

  2. YES! I want it tooo! Thank you for posting this! I'll definitely be looking for it!

  3. Yep, I'll be reading it. I'm suffering from the same thing!

  4. Hmm...I wasn't much of an Edith Warton fan years ago - I wonder if my tastes have changed. It does look beautiful! Nice pick.
