I am no longer an Amazon Associate. I am currently working on updating my posts with links to various locations to buy books. One of the links I am including is to RJ Julia - this is my favorite local independent book store. You can shop their store online and have access to pretty much anything you are looking for. I do not have any affiliation with any of these sites - just looking to support my local indie book store.

Giveaway - Child of the Northern Spring by Persia Woolley

As I mentioned earlier today in the wonderful guest post by author Persia Woolley I would have a giveaway away for you and I have kept true to my word.

Thanks to those awesome people at Sourcebooks, I have two copies of Persia Woolley’s new re-release Child of the Northern Spring to giveaway. This is the first book in the Guinevere Trilogy that Sourcebooks is re-releasing.

Here is the back cover blurb:

“Among the first to look at the story of Camelot through Guinevere’s eyes, Woolley sets the traditional tale in the time of its origin, after Britain has shattered into warring fiefdoms. Hampered by neither fantasy nor medieval romance, this young Guinevere is a feisty Celtic tomboy who sees no reason why she must learn to speak Latin, wear dresses, and go south to marry that king. But legends being what they are, the story of Arthur’s rise to power soon intrigues her, and when they finally meet, Guinevere and Arthur form a partnership that has lasted for 1500 years.

In Child of the Northern Spring, Gwen meets the characters who will accompany her and Arthur as they work to bring order to a country in chaos – Arthur’s best friend Bedivere; Merlin, whose wisdom reeks of magic and superstition; the brashly courageous young Gawain; and Morgan le Fey, Arthur’s half sister who harbors much hatred for the young king. This is Arthurian epic at its best – filled with romance, adventure, authentic Dark Ages detail, and wonderfully human people.”

  1. Thanks for the giveaway! I love Arthurian novels because it's so fascinating to see how the author interprets all the players. Tomboyish Gwen should be interesting!

  2. I will enjoy this book and have a friend who will also. She is currently on an Arthurian reading binge.


Thanks for leaving your comments! I love reading them and try to reply to all!
