Random Acts of Publicity Day 2: The Wicked and The Just

Little known fact about me: I only took one English class in college. And it was my lowest grade. (There's actually a humorous story behind it, but I won't get into it now.)

Suffice it to say, if I could go back and change my major from Psychology to something else, I would. 

No, not English.

I'd change it to History.

Love history. More specifically, I love hearing the personal stories that, when you weave them all together, make up history.

So how could I pass up this little dandy when I walked past? 

I know you're not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but come on! It's beautiful. And then I flipped it open to the beginning, and the voice popped right off the page. 

The blurb (from Goodreads): 
Cecily’s father has ruined her life. He’s moving them to occupied Wales, where the king needs good strong Englishmen to keep down the vicious Welshmen. At least Cecily will finally be the lady of the house.

Gwenhwyfar knows all about that house. Once she dreamed of being the lady there herself, until the English destroyed the lives of everyone she knows. Now she must wait hand and foot on this bratty English girl.

While Cecily struggles to find her place amongst the snobby English landowners, Gwenhwyfar struggles just to survive. And outside the city walls, tensions are rising ever higher—until finally they must reach the breaking point.

The story is heartwrenching and uplifting and nailbiting and hopeful all in one swoop.

And this is the fun part...the author, J. Anderson Coats is a fellow MSFV success story! You can find The Wicked and the Just on Goodreads here.

  1. Ohhhh... Karen, I LOVE history too... so, so, so much. I love wars, and lifestyles, the way people lived, even to their mindsets... I always felt I was born in the wrong time, LOL...

    And thanks for this blurb and highlight. Really fun. :D
