About

I live in New York City and I'm surrounded by books all day and when I go home I have more books waiting for me. Read my "About" page on top to see what I mean. I just want to share my book experiences and my love of all-things-books, with hopefully the occasional review thrown in. If you wish to contact me, the address is polishoutlanderATgmailDOTcom

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

My pick for the week is:

Available April 2010

The daughter of a papermaker in a small French village in the year 1320 – mute from birth and forced to shun normal society – young Auda finds solace and escape in the wonder of the written word. Believed to be cursed by those who embrace ignorance and superstition, Auda’s very survival is a testament to the strength of her spirit. But this is an age of Inquisition and intolerance, when difference and defiance are punishable “sins” and new ideas are considered damnable heresy. When darkness descends upon her world, Auda – newly grown to womanhood – is forced to flee, setting off on a remarkable quest to discover love and a new sense of self . . . and to reclaim her heritage and the small glory of her father’s art.
This sounds so different and like a great and beautiful read. I stumbled upon this by accident looking at some other historical fiction titles. This went on my wish list immediately.
