Julia Stuart
ISBN: 9780385533287

"Balthazar Jones, a retired military man, is now a Beefeater living in the Tower of London with his family and his 181-year-old pet tortoise named Mrs. Cook.

So they changed the title? This was my WOW a few weeks ago and then I snagged a copy from Goodreads First Reads under the title: The Tower, The Zoo, and The Tortoise: A Novel. I have to say I like the "new" title more! I'm still waiting for my review copy to arrive but I'm really looking forward to reading it.
