Waiting on Wednesday #48: Manor of Secrets by Katherine Longshore

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature created by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This is where you showcase an upcoming release you're anxiously awaiting!

This week, I'm waiting on:
Manor of Secrets by Katherine Longshore.

Expected Publication: January 28, 2014.
by: Point/Scholastic.

Goodreads Blurb:
The year is 1911. And at The Manor, nothing is as it seems . . .

Lady Charlotte Edmonds: Beautiful, wealthy, and sheltered, Charlotte feels suffocated by the strictures of upper-crust society. She longs to see the world beyond The Manor, to seek out high adventure. And most of all, romance. 

Janie Seward: Fiery, hardworking, and clever, Janie knows she can be more than just a kitchen maid. But she isn't sure she possesses the courage -- or the means -- to break free and follow her passions.

Both Charlotte and Janie are ready for change. As their paths overlap in the gilded hallways and dark corridors of The Manor, rules are broken and secrets are revealed. Secrets that will alter the course of their lives. . . forever.

Why I'm excited:
I know, historical fiction two weeks in a row. But I need it! It feels like there isn't much of it publishing in 2014 YA, so I'm REALLY excited about what is! not to mention how much I already adore Katherine, so to see a new book coming? I can't wait!

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. You and those historical fiction novels! I am the same way though - it's my favorite genre. Ish. Historical fantasy is my favorite genre. But I LOVE historical fiction. I hope you do that historical fiction feature again - I think it was in April?

    Anyway, I actually don't have an ARC of this one (for the past two WoWs of yours, I think I HAVE had them). BUT, I hope you get one, and you love this one, Jess! :)

    Check out my WoW post!

  2. I love historical YA! Actually, I haven't read much of historical YA, but I loved my mom's historical (not the cheapy kinds). This sounds amazing! Thanks for showing it, Jessica :)

  3. I loved Katherine Longshore's Gilt, and this one is already on my to-read list!
