Today, our Waiting on Wednesday pick is Sharon Biggs Waller's A Mad Wicked Folly.
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. It's a meme that allows book bloggers to talk about which titles they're most looking forward to!
Here's the synopsis from Goodreads:
A teen in Edwardian London, after getting expelled from her French boarding school, pursues her passion for art—and for an attractive police constable—despite the restrictions of her upper-class family.
Like everyone else around the world, we loved Sybil's involvement in the suffragette era on Downton Abbey. So the fact that Waller's book is:
A) a historical YA fiction which will feature the suffragette movement
B) a drama about an upperclass British family and (a potentially) rebellious daughter
C) a book in which the arts play a huge part,
makes it right up our alley!
