Description: “Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week’s selection: Landry Park by Bethany Hagen
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Downton Abbey meets The Selection in this dystopian tale of love and betrayal.
In a fragmented future United States ruled by the lavish gentry, seventeen-year-old Madeline Landry dreams of going to the university. Unfortunately, gentry decorum and her domineering father won’t allow that. Madeline must marry, like a good Landry woman, and run the family estate. But her world is turned upside down when she discovers the devastating consequences her lifestyle is having on those less fortunate. As Madeline begins to question everything she has ever learned, she finds herself increasingly drawn to handsome, beguiling David Dana. Soon, rumors of war and rebellion start to spread, and Madeline finds herself and David at the center of it all. Ultimately, she must make a choice between duty – her family and the estate she loves dearly – and desire.
Why did I choose this?
I didn’t like The selection as much as most people, but compare anything to Downton Abbey and I’m in. Plus I’ve been slacking off on dystopian reads lately for some reason and it’s time to get back to the genre.
