Wish List Wednesday - The Silent Governess


I have wish lists at both Paperback Swap and BookMooch, and am always adding new books to them. So, I'm going to feature a book (or two) each week on Wednesdays that I'm wishing for. You are welcome to join in on the fun!

I have read both of Julie Klassen's books (Lady of Milkweed Manor and The Apothecary's Daughter) and loved them both. So now I'm wishing for her next book, The Silent Governess, which will be available in bookstores on January 1, 2010.

Synopsis (from the publisher's site):
Olivia Keene is fleeing her own secret. She never intended to overhear his.
But now that she has, what is Lord Bradley to do with her? He cannot let her go, for were the truth to get out, he would lose everything--his reputation, his inheritance, his very home.
He gives Miss Keene little choice but to accept a post at Brightwell Court, where he can make certain she does not spread what she heard. Keeping an eye on the young woman as she cares for the children, he finds himself drawn to her, even as he struggles against the growing attraction. The clever Miss Keene is definitely hiding something.
Moving, mysterious, and romantic, The Silent Governess takes readers inside the intriguing life of a nineteenth-century governess in an English manor house where all is not as it appears.

This also qualifies as a pre-publication "can't wait to read" selection, which is the subject of Jill's meme Waiting On Wednesday, at her blog Breaking the Spine. Visit her site to see what other upcoming books other readers are eagerly waiting for.

So, what are YOU wishing for this week?
