Waiting on Wednesday #228

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Goodreads Description: 

I must write this account, and when I have finished, I will burn it.

Buried deep within the archives of a convent in medieval France is an untold story of love, loss, and wonder and the two girls at the heart of it all.

Dolssa is an upper-crust city girl with a secret lover and an uncanny gift. Branded a heretic, she’s on the run from the friar who condemned her mother to death by fire, and wants Dolssa executed, too.

Botille is a matchmaker and a tavern-keeper, struggling to keep herself and her sisters on the right side of the law in their seaside town of Bajas.

When their lives collide by a dark riverside, Botille rescues a dying Dolssa and conceals her in the tavern, where an unlikely friendship blooms. Aided by her sisters and Symo, her surly but loyal neighbor, Botille nurses Dolssa back to health and hides her from her pursuers. But all of Botille’s tricks, tales, and cleverness can’t protect them forever, and when the full wrath of the Church bears down upon Bajas, Dolssa’s passion and Botille’s good intentions could destroy the entire village.

From the author of the award-winning All the Truth That’s in Me comes a spellbinding thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the final page and make you wonder if miracles really are possible.

Hardcover, 368 pages
Expected publication: April 12th 2016 by Viking Books for Young Readers

I have read two books by Julie so far, and I loved them both. This new book by her sounds aaamazing. Eee. I simply cannot wait to read The Passion of Dolssa :D I think it seems so good. And it looks so gorgeous. Sigh. I'm crossing all my fingers that I will love it. <3 But I'm pretty sure I will :) Can't wait.
What are you waiting for on this passionate Wednesday?

  3. I still need to pick up a book by Berry, I've heard brilliant things about her writing, so really can't wait to experience it for myself. I also like the different take that Berry has taken with this book, it's not normally something that I would read, but I really want to!

  4. Oh my god this sounds incredible! never heard of it before, but I'm definitely adding it to my TBR right now. thank you so much for sharing!

  6. New to me but has quite the potential. Hope you get to read and love it soon.

  7. You know, I'm actually a little undecided on this one! I hope you enjoy this book when you read it, Carina.
