Waiting on Wednesday 1 - Rose Under Fire
I've decided to join in on the Waiting on Wednesday meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, where bloggers pick a book that hasn't been published yet that they are excited to read!
My first pick is Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein. It will be published September 10, 2013.
While flying an Allied fighter plane from Paris to England, American ATA pilot and amateur poet, Rose Justice, is captured by the Nazis and sent to Ravensbrück, the notorious women's concentration camp. Trapped in horrific circumstances, Rose finds hope in the impossible through the loyalty, bravery and friendship of her fellow prisoners. But will that be enough to endure the fate that’s in store for her?
Elizabeth Wein, author of the critically-acclaimed and best-selling Code Name Verity, delivers another stunning WWII thriller. The unforgettable story of Rose Justice is forged from heart-wrenching courage, resolve, and the slim, bright chance of survival.
I absolutely loved Elizabeth Wein's debut novel, Code Name Verity (you can find my review here). I'm very excited to read her second book, also set during World War II and featuring women on the battlefront.
