Wishlist Wednesday....


I am delighted to be part of wishlist Wednesday which is hosted by Dani at pen to paper

The idea is to post about one book each week that has been on your wishlist for some time, or maybe just added.

So what do you need to do to join in?

Follow Pen to Paper as host of the meme.

Pick a book from your wishlist that you are dying to get to put on your shelves.

Do a post telling your readers about the book and why it's on your wishlist.

Add your blog to the linky at the bottom of her post.

Put a link back to pen to paper (http://vogue-pentopaper.blogspot.com) somewhere in your post.




My Wishlist Wednesday Book 

is


by 

Lucinda Riley


The Orchid House: A Novel
Simon and Schuster



From Goodreads

For fans of The House at Riverton and Rebecca—a debut spanning from the 1930s to the present day, from a magnificent estate in war-torn England to Thailand, this sweeping novel tells the tale of a concert pianist, Julia, and the prominent Crawford family whose shocking secrets are revealed, leading to devastating consequences for generations to come.

I am intrigued by this story - dual time narratives always appeal to me and this one looks especially interesting as it is set in the 1930's, and the present day.  I usually read dual time narratives which are set further back in history, so to have one in relative recent time should make for an interesting comparison.




Lucinda Riley is the author of several novels.
