Waiting on Wednesday (#9) The Lady of The Rivers

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. Basically, it’s a chance to highlight one of the many books that you want to read but hasn’t been released just yet.

My Waiting on Wednesday pick for this week is…

Title: The Lady of the Rivers
Author: Philippa Gregory
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Publication Date: October 18, 2011

[Goodreads | Amazon]

Jacquetta, daughter of the Count of Luxembourg and kinswoman to half the royalty of Europe, was married to the great Englishman John, Duke of Bedford, uncle to Henry VI. Widowed at the age of nineteen she took the extraordinary risk of marrying a gentleman of her house-hold for love, and then carved out a life for herself as Queen Margaret of Anjou's close friend and a Lancaster supporter - until the day that her daughter Elizabeth Woodville fell in love and married the rival king Edward IV. Of all the little-known but important women of the period, her dramatic story is the most neglected. With her links to Melusina, and to the founder of the house of Luxembourg, together with her reputation for making magic, she is the most haunting of heroines.

This is book three in the Cousin's War series by Philippa Gregory.  I already have books one and two, though I haven't yet read them, but who doesn't love a Philippa Gregory book?  Maybe I will read the first two books before the third one comes out.  Fingers crossed!

What's on your waiting list this week?
