Waiting on Wednesday (46)

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. (:

Today's pick:

Everlasting by Angie Frazier

description (from author site)

Sailing aboard her father’s trade ship is all seventeen-year-old Camille Rowen has ever wanted. But as a girl of society in 1855 San Francisco, her future is set: marry a man she doesn’t love, or condemn herself and her father to poverty. On her final voyage before the wedding, the stormy arms of the Tasman Sea claim her father, and a terrible family secret is revealed. A secret intertwined with a fabled map, the mother Camille has long believed dead, and an ancient stone that wields a dangerous - and alluring - magic. The only person Camille can depend on is Oscar, a handsome young sailor whom she is undeniably drawn to. Torn between trusting her instincts and keeping her promises to her father, Camille embarks on a perilous quest into the Australian wilderness to find the enchanted stone. As she and Oscar elude murderous bushrangers and unravel Camille’s father’s lies, they come closer to making the ultimate decision of who - and what - matters most.


Do I even need to explain why I want this one? I could write like a 500 word paragraph (filled with a ton of exclamation points) on why I want this book.

I lovelovelove historical fiction, and since 1855 is a year that I haven't read much about I definitely want it. Also, secrets? WHO DOESN'T LOVE SECRETS? And who doesn't love maps and rocks and Australia and sailors? THERE IS NOTHING NOT TO LOVE ABOUT THIS BOOK SUMMARY.


(Also, how cute is that cover? It's so cute.)

Released in *sob* June 2010.


  1. I think I "need" this one, too.
    Thanks for the pick. I hadn't heard of it.

  2. I agree, the cover is so cute. And the book sounds nice too. *adds to 2010 release lists*

  3. The cover is amazing - I am not a huge lover of historical fiction, but this one sounds good and the cover is awesome! :)

    I hope you enjoy it.

  4. Can't wait to read this one either. Sounds amazing! I love the cover too, very gorgeous!
