Waiting on Wednesday: The Gilded Cage

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and features books that we just can't wait to get our hands on!

The Gilded Cage by Lucinda Gray (translated by Melissa Albert)

Goodreads' description:

"A historical psychological suspense and murder mystery for teens, with all the trappings of Downton Abbey.

After growing up on a farm in Virginia, Walthingham Hall in England seems like another world to sixteen-year-old Katherine Randolph. Her new life, filled with the splendor of upper-class England in the 1820s, is shattered when her brother mysteriously drowns. Katherine is expected to observe the mourning customs and get on with her life, but she can't accept that her brother's death was an accident.

A bitter poacher prowls the estate, and strange visitors threaten the occupants of the house. There's a rumor, too, that a wild animal stalks the woods of Walthingham. Can Katherine retain her sanity long enough to find out the truth? Or will her brother's killer claim her life, too?

This Gothic murder mystery is filled with history, psychological suspense, and all the trappings of Downton Abbey.

I'm a sucker for Gothics, and also a fan of Downton Abbey (although, it looks like this one is set much earlier than the Edwardian era, so I'm not sure how accurate the comparison is)... so this one sounds right up my alley!
What books are you waiting for?


  1. This looks really good, Danya! So far I've been disappointed with a lot of "Downton Abbey" readalikes that I've come across. Here's hoping this one doesn't!

  2. Beautiful cover and I just read a historical fiction book last week and enjoyed the genre quite a bit. I may have to check this one out. Thanks for sharing!


I love comments, so post away!
