Waiting on Wednesday (60) – The Wicked and The Just by J. Anderson

Posted by on November 9, 2011
“Waiting On” Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about (created by Jill at Breaking The Spine.)

1293. North Wales. Ten years into English rule.

Cecily would give anything to leave Caernarvon. Gwenhwyfar would give anything to see all the English leave.

Neither one is going to get her wish.

Behind the city walls, English burgesses govern with impunity. Outside the walls, the Welsh are confined by custom and bear the burden of taxation, and the burgesses plan to keep it that way.

Cecily can’t be bothered with boring things like the steep new tax or the military draft that requires Welshmen to serve in the king’s army overseas. She has her hands full trying to fit in with the town’s privileged elite, and they don’t want company.

Gwenhwyfar can’t avoid these things. It’s all she can do to get through one more day.But the Welsh are not as conquered as they seem, and the suffering in the countryside is rapidly turning to discontent. The murmurs of revolt may be Gwenhwyfar’s only hope for survival – and the last thing Cecily ever hears.

The Wicked and the Just will be released on April 17th, 2012 by HMH Books.

  1. Oohh, this book sounds so cool!! I've been looking for a good historical fiction book to read since I want to add diversity to my shelves, and I love that this one is set ten years into the English rule — we're supposed to learn that in history this year! :) That's just coolness!

    Awesome pick for your WOW, Hafsah!

  2. You always come up with the most original choices. I'm going to have to add this one to my TBR. It sounds very intriguing historical. Looking forward to it!
