GIVEAWAY: On the Eleventh Day of Christmas...

My True Love Gave to Me...
... Eleven Pipers Piping...

and I'm giving away...

A captivating story of a mother's love stretched to breaking and a knight determined to rebuild his life with the royal mistress, The Time of Singing is Elizabeth Chadwick at her best. Based on a true story never before told and impeccably researched, this is a testament to the power of sacrifice and the strength of love.

When Roger Bigod, heir to the powerful earldom of Norfolk, arrives at court to settle an inheritance, he meets Ida de Tosney, young mistress to King Henry II. In Roger, Ida sees a chance for lasting love, but their decision to marry carries an agonizing price. It's a breathtaking novel of making choices, not giving up, and coping with the terrible shifting whims of the king.

For the King's FavorThe Time of Singing is the original title published in the UK. It was recently published in the U.S. retitled as For the King's Favor.
