Waiting On Wednesday: Dido

Waiting on Wednesday idea from Jill at Breaking the Spine.

-----

Dido by Adele Geras

* Published by: David Fickling Books
* Format: Hardcover (UK)
* Release Date:
May 7th, 2009 (UK),
* On Amazon: here.

Aeneas leaned forward a little and kissed her on the mouth. Just one swift, soft touch of his lips on hers and then he turned and walked away.

Love can be deadly. Especially when two young women fall for the same man – one a queen, the other her serving maid. Elissa knows she is playing with fire, but she can’t resist. Queen Dido suspects nothing, until one fateful night… Secrets are revealed, hearts are broken and as dawn breaks, a terrible tragedy unfolds.

A passionate tale of love, betrayal and revenge.

I'm really looking forward to this one. Love triangles, secrets, tragedy... it sounds like a great read! And I really like the cover too.

Oh my god. I've tried to leave a comment 3 times now and every time it kicks me off. This had better show up or I'm going to throw my computer down somewhere...

This sounds great. I didn't like Troy as much but I think I'll give this a try. And does the cover remind you of the original cover for Shannon Hale's Goose Girl? Gorgeous!

This sounds great and like Steph, when I first looked at it I thought it was a Shannon Hale book. Great cover!
