Patience, Princess Catherine by Carolyn Meyer.


Patience, Princess Catherine by Carolyn Meyer.

Catherine of Aragon grew up expecting she would one day become the queen of England-not a dejected teenage widow. But that is exactly what happens when fragile Prince Arthur, to whom she has been betrothed since the age of three, dies only months after their wedding. Her power now obsolete, Catherine is exiled to a dank castle in a remote part of the country. She is stranded there for years with little money and no control over her own fate.



There is one ray of light in Catherine´s lonely life-her friendship with handsome Prince Henry, her deceased husband´s younger brother. A marriage to Henry could elevate Catherine from her precarious position and give her the crown that she was once promised. But will Henry take the risk of making the destitute princess his queen? Only time will tell.

Wildwood by Colin Meloy.


Wildwood by Colin Meloy.

Prue McKeel´s life is ordinary. That is, until her brother is abducted by a murder of crows and taken to the Impassable Wilderness, a dense, tangled forest on the edge of Portland. No one´s ever gone in-or at least returned to tell of it.

So begins an adventure that will take Prue and her friend Curtis deep into the Impassable Wilderness. There they uncover a secret world in the midst of violent upheaval-a world full of warring creatures, peaceable mystics, and powerful figures with the darkest intentions. And what begins, as a rescue mission becomes something much greater as the two friends find themselves entwined in a struggle for the very freedom of this wilderness. A wilderness the locals call Wildwood.
