Waiting on Wednesday: Keeping the Castle

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme held by Jill at Breaking the Spine to feature upcoming books that we can't wait to get our hands on. 

Title: Keeping the Castle 
Author: Patrice Kindl
Publisher: Viking Childrens Books
Date of Release: June 14, 2012 

Goodreads Description: Seventeen-year-old Althea is the sole support of her entire family, and she must marry well. But there are few wealthy suitors - or suitors of any kind - in their small Yorkshire town of Lesser Hoo. Then, the young and attractive (and very rich) Lord Boring arrives, and Althea sets her plans in motion. There's only one problem; his friend and business manager Mr. Fredericks keeps getting in the way. And, as it turns out, Fredericks has his own set of plans ... 

Why am I waiting? I love historical fiction and this one seems like it's got a touch of Pride and Prejudice to it.

  7. Ooooo why haven't I heard of this one before Z? It sounds AWESOME! It does seem like it might have a bit of P&P in it, and that's always a good thing. AND we don't have to wait very long, YES!
