Waiting on Wednesday #34: The Forbidden Orchid

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The Forbidden Orchid by Sharon Biggs Waller Publication Date: March 8, 2016 
Publisher: Viking

Staid, responsible Elodie Buchanan is the eldest of ten sisters living in a small English market town in 1861. The girls' father is a plant hunter, usually off adventuring through the jungles of China. 
Then disaster strikes: Mr. Buchanan fails to collect an extremely rare and valuable orchid, meaning that he will be thrown into debtors' prison and the girls will be sent to the orphanage or the poorhouse. Elodie's father has one last chance to return to China, find the orchid, and save the family—and this time, thanks to an unforeseen twist of fate, Elodie is going with him. Elodie has never before left her village, but what starts as fear turns to wonder as she adapts to seafaring life aboard the tea clipper The Osprey, and later to the new sights, dangers, and romance of China. 
But even if she can find the orchid, how can she find herself now that staid, responsible Elodie has seen how much the world has to offer?
Why Am I Excited For This Book?

I'm not sure how I only found this book a few weeks ago, but I am so excited for it. I REALLY LOVED A Mad, Wicked Folly  when I read it back in 2014. Not only did I enjoy the story, but I really love Sharon Biggs Waller's writing. So there is definitely no doubt in my mind about wanting to read this one. I am looking forward to this adventure Elodie finds herself on. And I am curious to find out what happens. 

What book are you waiting on this Wednesday?
