It’s Tuesday! The wonderful day that books are released to the world. This week, I’m anticipating the release of Landry Park by Bethany Hagen, which comes out Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2014.
In a fragmented future United States ruled by the lavish gentry, seventeen-year-old Madeline Landry dreams of going to the university. Unfortunately, gentry decorum and her domineering father won’t allow that. Madeline must marry, like a good Landry woman, and run the family estate. But her world is turned upside down when she discovers the devastating consequences her lifestyle is having on those less fortunate. As Madeline begins to question everything she has ever learned, she finds herself increasingly drawn to handsome, beguiling David Dana. Soon, rumors of war and rebellion start to spread, and Madeline finds herself and David at the center of it all. Ultimately, she must make a choice between duty – her family and the estate she loves dearly – and desire.
I don’t even have to get past the first five words of the description and I’m already drooling over this title. I love Downton Abbey and I HEART The Selection so, so much. This book will have a lot to live up to. However, I’m most excited about this idea of good old fashion female oppression where they are forced to marry for position and they just want to be free! Can’t wait to get my hands on this one!
