While we don’t have a specific title for today, here’s a look at an author we hope to feature soon at Wonders and Marvels.
Lisa Klein is the author of multiple novels for young adults. Her first book, Ophelia, retells the story of Hamlet through the eyes of his ill-fated lover, weaving in additional backstory while remaining relatively true to Shakespeare’s text. Her second novel, Two Girls of Gettysburg, shifts the focus to the American Civil War. Through the eyes of two vastly different cousins, this novel portrays the Battle of Gettysburg from both the Union and Confederate sides.
Klein’s third book, Lady Macbeth’s Daughter, will be officially released on October 13th. With this novel, she returns to the realm of Shakespeare retellings, this time centering on the premise that Macbeth and his wife had a daughter who was abandoned at birth. Raised by three strange sisters in the Wychelm Wood, Albia knows nothing of her real parents. But when her father, Macbeth, comes to seek knowledge of his fate, she is forced to make a series of painful choices.
Look for a guest post from Lisa soon at Wonders and Marvels!
