Boook Giveaway: Radicals and Royalists

The lovely Emily Jacobs wrote to tell me of her newest book, Radicals & Royalists which is now available from Amazon.  Needless to say, it sounds like something many of you bookworms would be interested in:
After a childhood spent learning about abolition, self-government, and the rights of humankind, Lydia Jameson is now an independent-minded young woman who hopes to change the world. As Britain and France wage war over tradition and revolution in 1793, Lydia works with her widowed father Nicholas, operating a bookshop and printing business in Portsmouth, England. Although they live in relative safety, their disdain for the status quo carries the constant risk of arrest. When Lydia's best friend marries a naval officer--against her advice--she must suffer the company of Tories in uniform who consider her a treasonous rebel. Lydia soon finds herself immersed in romance, political conflict, and family drama, as she begins to learn that not all officers are created equal.
Emily has been kind enough to agree to let one reader win a copy of this exciting Georgian tale (so you can read about it and gush all about it to us).  I myself, will be living vicariously through you since, reading for pleasure seems to be a long-lost dream le sigh.

  2. Grammatical corrections will probably keep me off the list of entrants for the book giveaway, but - Oh, well. I assume your post meant to say 'bookworms' not 'bookworks'.

  6. Pick me! I need to be educated above all things. I really loved the book of the history of the Vicarage. I loaned it to my CEO and haven't seen it since.
