Waiting on Wednesday (80)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it is a way to show off the books you can't wait to be released!!

This week I chose:


by Mary Hooper


Release Date: Sep 15, 2011

The following description is from goodreads.com:

Rose is a laundress in a
Victorian steam laundry. With both her mother and father dead, she is
an orphan and has to rely upon her own wits to make a living. The
laundry is scalding, back-breaking work and Rose is desperate to create a
better life for herself. Then Rose is noticed by Madame X, a famed
medium, who asks Rose to come to work for her. Rose is dazzled at first
by the young yet beautifully dressed and bejewelled Madame. But soon
Rose realises that Madame X is not all that she says she is, and Rose's
very life is in danger ...A romantic and thrillingly exciting new novel
from an acclaimed and much-loved historical writer for teens.

Mary Hooper writes so well about this era, so spooky!! I loved "Fallen Grace" and this one seems really similar.
