Waiting on Wednesday: The Fool's Girl

This week I am waiting for a historical adventure:

The Fool's Girl by Celia Rees
Released 5th April 2010 in the UK, Bloomsbury

Summary from Amazon:
Violetta and Feste have come to London to rescue the holy relics taken from the church in Illyria by the evil Malvolio. Their journey has been long and their adventures many, but it is not until they meet the playwright William Shakespeare that they get to tell the entire story from beginning to end! But where will this remarkable tale ultimately lead Violetta and her companion? And will they manage to save themselves, and the relics from the very evil intentions of Malvolio?

You can read the first chapter here.

I love the premise for this. Any book that includes the remarkable Mr Shakespeare is a must. Thanks to Emma @ Bloomsbury for telling me all about this book. I can't wait to read it.

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine.
