Coming Soon to a Library Near You

Coming Soon to a Library Near You is a weekly feature inspired by Jill at Breaking the Spine that looks at upcoming books.

This Week’s Book: Cate of the Lost Colony
Author: Lisa M. Klein
Release Date: October 12 2010
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? (goodreads)

I generally like historical fiction, but I especially love anything historical set in North America. This looks really interesting and it's a topic I hear about from time to time. If anyone has already read it, I would love to hear your oppinions :)
