Giveaway: The Queen’s Mistake

September 29, 2009

The Queen's Mistake

Thanks to Penguin Books, I have two copies of The Queen’s Mistake by Diane Haeger to give away.  Here’s a little bit about the book:

When the young and beautiful Catherine Howard becomes the fifth wife of the fifty-year-old King Henry VIII, she seems to be on top of the world. Yet her reign is destined to be brief and heartbreaking, as she is forced to do battle with enemies far more powerful and calculating than she could have ever anticipated in a court where one wrong move could mean her undoing. Wanting only love, Catherine is compelled to deny her heart’s desire in favor of her family’s ambition. But in so doing, she unwittingly gives those who sought to bring her down a most effective weapon—her own romantic past.

The Queen’s Mistake is the tragic tale of one passionate and idealistic woman who struggles to negotiate the intrigue of the court and the yearnings of her heart.

To enter to win one of two copies of THE QUEEN’S MISTAKE  by Diane Haeger, simply leave a comment on this post. Giveaway is open to those with a United States mailing address only.   I will use to determine the winner.  Contest ends at midnight EST, Monday, October 12, 2009.  Winner will be announced on Tuesday, October 13, 2009.

    Great giveaway Kathy!! I’d love a chance to read this one. Our book club has read a few similar historical fiction books (this seems to be a favorite time period of about three of our members), and they are usually wonderful to read and talk about.
