I meant to post about this a while ago, before I got a book to review, but the last two weeks have been unusually busy, which means I didn’t get to it.

Blogging for Books is a great program for those who love to read and also blog.  This means me.  😀  When you sign up, you get to choose which kinds of books you want to review.  You choose a book from the list; they ship it to you (which takes about 1 to 2 weeks); you read and then review the book on your blog, their site and others that your frequent.

Below is my review of my first book, Lady in Waiting, by Susan Meissner.

Lady in Waiting, by Susan Meissner

I *love* this book!  As a big fan of historical reading, this book was a perfect blend of history and the present.  This is essentially two stories in one; two women with the same first name, tied together through history via a ring.

The modern Jane faces unexpected life changes, borne of decisions not of her choosing.  The historical Jane faces a lifetime of uncertainty, born into nobility and crafted into a political pawn in the Tudor reign. The contrast between eras and the role of women is striking.

Susan Meissner writes in a style that is completely immersing and gripping. This was a book I did not want to set down, and one that sucks you in and makes you lose all track of time. I felt like I knew the characters, and had an emotional investment in their stories. I was sad the book ended, and these characters are lingering in my mind.  I know I will be thinking about them for a good while.

I would definitely recommend this book to friends.  If you like historical drama, you will not want to miss this book! Please click on the image below to rank my review.
