Giveaway! The White Queen by Philippa Gregory.

I had planned to do this giveaway last week as part of The Red Queen blog tour, but I had problems with my internet and it messed up my schedule! Anyhow, here it is! The White Queen is the first book in Philippa Gregory's Cousins' War series, and it's a great read.  I have an extra copy, and I'm happy to share it with one of you lucky readers!



Brother turns on brother to win the ultimate prize, the throne of England, in this dazzling account of the wars of the Plantagenets. They are the claimants and kings who ruled England before the Tudors, and now Philippa Gregory brings them to life through the dramatic and intimate stories of the secret players: the indomitable women, starting with Elizabeth Woodville, the White Queen.

The White Queen tells the story of a woman of extraordinary beauty and ambition who, catching the eye of the newly crowned boy king, marries him in secret and ascends to royalty. While Elizabeth rises to the demands of her exalted position and fights for the success of her family, her two sons become central figures in a mystery that has confounded historians for centuries: the missing princes in the Tower of London whose fate is still unknown. From her uniquely qualified perspective, Philippa Gregory explores this most famous unsolved mystery of English history, informed by impeccable research and framed by her inimitable storytelling skills.

COMPETITION CLOSED!
WINNER ANNOUNCED SOON!
