Waiting on Wednesday: Cate of the Lost Colony by Lisa Klein

Cate of the Lost Colony by Lisa Klein (Published by Bloomsbury, October 2010)

The greatest unsolved mystery of American history--what happened to all the colonists who landed on Roanoke Island in 1587? This novel traces the fortunes and misfortunes of one Cate Archer, banished to Virginia by a jealous Queen Elizabeth because of her dalliance with Sir Walter Ralegh. What will be her fate in this dangerous New World?


I have always been fascinated by the story of the Lost Colony of Roanoke and what may have happened there. And I have loved all the books I have read so far by Lisa Klein. So I am really looking forward to this book, and it is one of the fall releases I want to read the most. Also I love the cover, it is really pretty, love the girl's dress and the background.

I hadn't heard of this but I find the mystery of Roanoke to be really fascinating. In the 90s I read an interesting series by Angela Hunt that started with the Rooanoke Colony and what might have happened to them. Great WoW pick. I'm adding this to my TBR list.
