Blogiversary Giveaway #12: Win a copy of The Grand Duchess of Nowhere by Laurie Graham

I have been very fortunate over the last 3 years to have been sent many great review books by the lovely people at Quercus Books and their generosity continues as Margot kindly sent me a copy of Laurie Graham's latest book The Grand Duchess of Nowhere to give away as a blogiversary prize. 

There is one great love in everyone's life.

For Ducky, Princess Victoria Melita, hers was a Romanov cousin, a member of the doomed Russian royal family. Her father is Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh, Queen Victoria's second son. Her mother is Grand Duchess Marie, the daughter of Tsar Alexander III. Ducky seems doomed to be a pawn on her grandmother's dynastic chessboard.

But Ducky is not so easily controlled. In an era when death is considered preferable to divorce she fights for the freedom to be with the true love of her life. From disgraced exile in Paris to the glitter of St Petersburg and the mud and carnage of the Eastern Front, she forges her own path.

As Russia descends into the chaos of 1917 and the Romanov dynasty falters, Ducky is right at the heart of events.

Exiled once more, she tells us her story.

As this is a hardback book I'm afraid I'm going to have to restrict postage to UK only as it's expensive to post heavy parcels overseas but don't worry there are plenty more International giveaways coming up.  Enter via the Rafflecopter form below.
