Waiting on Wednesday


Lady Victoria Mansfield, youngest daughter of the Earl and 
Countess of Fairmount, is destined for a charmed life. Soon she 
will be presented during the London season, where she can choose a mate worthy of her status. 

Yet Tory has a shameful secret—a secret so powerful that, if 
exposed, it could strip her of her position and disgrace her family forever. Tory’s blood is tainted…by magic. When a shocking accident forces Tory to demonstrate her despised skill, the secret she’s fought so hard to hide is revealed for all to see. She is immediately exiled to Lackland Abbey, a reform school for young men and women in her position. There she will learn to suppress her deplorable talents and maybe, if she’s one of the lucky ones, be able to return to society. 

But Tory’s life is about to change forever. All that she’s ever 
known or considered important will be challenged. What lies 
ahead is only the beginning of a strange and wonderful journey 
into a world where destiny and magic come together, where true 
love and friendship find her, and where courage and strength of 
character are the only things that determine a young girl’s worth


Thoughts?


Um, can I have this? Now? First of all the cover is stunning, I love the black and white it is very classic. I hope the mirror will be shiny when the final copy comes out! History + magic is always a great combo.


This book is officially on my my must-have list!


Too bad it comes out March 1st... :(

This looks great! I wasn't expecting this to be about magic. I'm going to have to look for this one once it comes out.
