This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands,-- This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England. ~~William Shakespeare, Richard III

Giveaway: The White Queen

The release date for Philippa Gregory's newest novel The Red Queen is fast approaching (within a day or so here in the States). This is the second novel in her Cousins' War series and I decided I would host a giveaway for the first book in the series, The White Queen. While her newest novel focuses on Margaret Beaufort, Henry VII's mom, the first novel focused on Elizabeth Woodville, Edward IV's queen and mother to Elizabeth of York (who became Henry VII's wife and mother to Henry VIII).


THIS IS A GIVEAWAY FOR THE WHITE QUEEN!!! NOT THE NEWEST NOVEL!!!!


I have a beautiful hardcover copy to giveaway to one lucky person! To enter:

3) Link to where you posted about it in your blog

This giveaway will be open until August 31 and is open to all readers! Good luck!
