Waiting On Wednesday #5 (On Thursday): ‘Godiva’

Waiting on Wednesday

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, to spotlight upcoming releases that make me clap in bookish glee.


This week’s selection is:

9780062026880_p0_v1_s600Godiva: ANovel by Nicole Galland

Release date:  July 2, 2013

Publisher:  William Morrow Paperbacks

Why?  A glimpse into the life of such a legendary and iconic woman- with a twist- sounds intriguing and romantic.  Plus, the ginger featured on that gorgeous cover= MUST read!

From the jacket:

‘Everyone knows the legend of Lady Godiva—the woman who (in)famously rode naked on horseback through Coventry to relieve her people from unfair taxation. But why would a lady of the court take it all off and risk everything, including husband, home, and well-being?

In this richly imagined retelling of an oft-told ancient tale, Nicole Galland gives us Lady Godiva in all her, um, glory, as she and her best friend (the Abbess Egdiva) and husband (Leofric, Earl of Mercia) embark on an adventure filled with courtly intrigue, deceit, back-stabbing, and romance.’
