It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (10)


Welcome to It’s Monday! What Are You Reading! This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from! Hosted by Book Journey

This week I'm reading:


The Lost Prince by Selden Edwards



From the author of the beloved New York Times bestselling novel The Little Book, comes a novel about a love that is capable of bridging unfathomable distances.
Recently returned from the experience of a lifetime in fin de si├Ęcle Vienna, where she met and tragically lost the first great love of her life, Eleanor Burden has no choice but to settle into her expected place in society, marry the man she is supposed to marry, and wait for life to come to her. As the twentieth century approaches, hers is a story not unlike that of the other young women she grew up with in 1890s Boston—a privileged upbringing punctuated by a period of youthful adventure and followed by the inevitable acknowledgment of real life—except for one small difference: Eleanor possesses an unshakable belief that she has advance knowledge of every major historical event to come during her lifetime.

But soon the script of events she has written in her mind—a script described by no less than Sigmund Freud as the invented delusions of a hysteric—begins to unravel. Eleanor Burden, at once fragile and powerful, must find the courage of her deepest convictions, discover the difference between predetermination and free will, secure her belief in her own sanity, and decide whether she will allow history to unfold come what may—or use her extraordinary gifts to bend history to her will and deliver for her the life she knows she is meant to have.

  2. I'm not a big fan of historical fiction but I saw The Lost Prince last week and was instantly drawn to it. I've put a hold on it at the library and am excited to read it.

  4. Ooh nice! Read Julie Kagawa's The Lost Prince and liked it a lot! ;)

    Know that this is an entirely different book, but I just find it fun sometimes to see different books with the same title! Or books that have the same cover art, but "tweaked"!

    Happy Reading this week!

    Here's my Monday Wrapup
