Watermark: A Novel of the Middle Ages by Vanitha Sankaran

"The daughter of a papermaker in a small French village in the year 1320—mute from birth and forced to shun normal society—young Auda finds solace and escape in the wonder of the written word. Believed to be cursed by those who embrace ignorance and superstition, Auda's very survival is a testament to the strength of her spirit. But this is an age of Inquisition and intolerance, when difference and defiance are punishable "sins" and new ideas are considered damnable heresy. When darkness descends upon her world, Auda—newly grown to womanhood—is forced to flee, setting off on a remarkable quest to discover love and a new sense of self . . . and to reclaim her heritage and the small glory of her father's art".

  1. You got a UK ARC at Goodwill?! That's awesome! Great haul Lizzy!

    Happy Reading!

  2. I read Watermark in 2 days; it was awesome!! Hope you enjoy it, too. Great haul from the Goodwill@!

  3. Wow-I love the cover of Watermark! Can't wait to see the review-hope it's good!

  4. I love the cover of Watermark. It's beautiful! Enjoy all your new reads!

  5. Amy, I guess I have been lucky lately but for this past week I have found 3 ARC's at goodwill.

    Elizabeth, I have heard others say the same thing 2 days and it was wonderful. It is taking everything I have not to pounce on it.

    Watermark does have a beautiful cover but since mine is a ARC it has a white box around it and it not the finished cover. If I love it I will buy the finished copy. I have heard it is really interesting. I am going to have to wait and see.

  6. I was also bummed that the ARC of Watermark had the white boarder around it. It sounds really interesting and I am looking forward to reading it!

    Good job on the Goodwill books lately...that is really awesome :)

  7. Carrie I will for sure post my review of it and give the DL on the book. I hope it is good.

    Muse I know it is such a disappointment when it is not a finished copy. I will end up buying it I can just feel it because that cover is too pretty not to own a final copy of.

    I am such a goodwill scrounge, I am such a book hound I have like 3 locations by my house and I go once a week or if I am bored. I swear the whole "who ever dies with the most books wins" thing has been killing me lately.
