Contest: The Queen's Daughter by Susan Coventry

Thanks to author Susan Conventry, I am hosting a contest to win a copy of her debut young adult historical novel, The Queen's Daughter:

Joan’s mother is Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine, the most beautiful woman in the world. Her father is Henry II, the king of England. She loves them both—so what can she do when she’s forced to choose between them? As her parents’ arguments grow ever more vicious, Joan begins to feel like a political pawn.
When her parents marry her off to the king of Sicily, Joan finds herself with a man ten years her senior. She doesn’t love him, and she can’t quite forget her childhood crush, the handsome Lord Raymond.
As Joan grows up, she begins to understand that her parents’ worldview is warped by their political ambitions, and hers, in turn, has been warped by theirs. Is it too late to figure out whom to trust? And, more important, whom to love?

To find out more about Susan Coventry and The Queen's Daughter, you can visit her website. You can also read my review of the book and my interview with Susan Coventry.

I'd love to read this book. I recently read Christy English's THE QUEEN'S PAWN and that was the first time I realized that Eleanor and Henry had daughters - it's great that women's voices are finally being heard - even if it is fictionalized. This book's going on my wish list - thanks for the chance to win a copy!

I read a fat, dusty bio on Eleanor a few summers ago. This sounds great!

This book has been on my TBR pile since I first heard about it months ago. I would love to win a copy as my library does not own this one.

I would love to read about their daughters instead of always talking about an heir to the throne.
