Waiting on Wednesday: Folly by Marthe Jocelyn

Folly by Marthe Jocelyn (Published by Random House, May 11, 2010)

Three fates intertwine in this moving and passionate love story set in Victorian London.
Mary Finn: country girl, maid to a lord in London
Caden Tucker: liar, scoundrel, and heart's delight
James Nelligan: age six, tossed into a herd of boys
When Mary Finn falls into the arms of handsome Caden Tucker, their frolic changes the course of her life. What possesses her? She's been a girl of common sense until now. Mary's tale alternates with that of young James Nelligan, a new boy in an enormous foundling home.
In Folly, Marthe Jocelyn's breathtaking command of language, detail, and character brings Victorian London to life on every page, while the deep emotions that illuminate this fascinating novel about life-changing moments are as current as today's news.


Another historical novel, I'm so excited by all the awesome YA historical fiction coming out this year, and this is another one on my wish list that looks really good.

That cover is a shocker. You have to wonder how it fits into the story. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it. Enjoy your book. My WoW post might interest you.
