Waiting on Wednesday: Cate of the Lost Colony

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine. "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Cate of the Lost Colony by Lisa M. Klein
Pub. Date: October 12, 2010



Goodreads says, "The greatest unsolved mystery of American history--what happened to all the colonists who landed on Roanoke Island in 1587? This novel traces the fortunes and misfortunes of one Cate Archer, banished to Virginia by a jealous Queen Elizabeth because of her dalliance with Sir Walter Ralegh. What will be her fate in this  dangerous  New World?"


*I love historical fiction and this one seems pretty unique to me. I haven't read a YA novel about the colonists on Roanoke Island before. It sounds promising!  What book are you waiting for?
