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 the 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 I'm waiting:
I realize I have a problem with pretty covers. That's the first thing I'm drawn to, but even if it had a horrible looking cover, I would still be drawn to this one. I'm hesitant to be excited about a book when it is compared to a previously successful book like The Selection (which I LOVED), because I hate when publishers do that. I feel like they just say that to play off the success of said comparison book. HOWEVER, this one sounds really good! I've been craving a new dystopian world to dive into, especially with some of my very favorite dystopian series ending this year! For some reason, I don't think I'll ever get enough dystopian! Also, I think it's really cool that the people that rule are called the gentry, because that's one of my dog's names! I asked for this one for my birthday on February 10th, so fingers crossed that my parents buy it for me! :)
What do you think of my choice?
