Waiting On Wednesday: While Beauty Slept by Elizabeth Blackwell

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




While Beauty Slept by Elizabeth Blackwell
Hardcover, 432 pages
Expected publication: February 20th 2014 by Amy Einhorn Books/Putnam

A beautiful princess lies in a sleep so deep it is close to death. Was Sleeping Beauty revived by a prince's kiss? What really happened in that tower so long ago?

While Beauty Slept re-imagines the legend through the lens of historical fiction, telling the story as if it really happened. A Gothic tale of suspense and ambition, love and loss, it interweaves the story of a royal family and the servants who see behind the glamorous facade, following the journey of a young woman as she lives out a destiny that leads her to the brink of death.



Oh, I can't wait for this book! I love the "While Beauty Slept re-imagines the legend through the lens of historical fiction, telling the story as if it really happened" part in the description. It sounds amazing!
