The Game of Hope by Sandra Gulland ~ Giveaway

For Napoleon's stepdaughter, nothing is simple -- especially love.

Paris, 1798. Hortense de Beauharnais is engrossed in her studies at a boarding school for aristocratic girls, most of whom suffered tragic losses during the tumultuous days of the French Revolution. She loves to play and compose music, read and paint, and daydream about Christophe, her brother's dashing fellow officer. But Hortense is not an ordinary girl. Her beautiful, charming mother, Josephine, has married Napoleon Bonaparte, soon to become the most powerful man in France, but viewed by Hortense as a coarse, unworthy successor to her elegant father, who was guillotined during the Terror.

Where will Hortense's future lie?

Inspired by Hortense's real-life autobiography with charming glimpses of teen life long ago, this is the story of a girl chosen by fate to play a role she didn't choose.

Val has an ARC of this book to give away!

  1. I do enjoy YA books and prefer them over new adult.

  2. I liked Tiger Striped on facebook

  3. I like some YA books. Historical fiction is one of my favorites, and this one is both. Since I have a teen daughter, I like to find lots of books for her to read and share with friends.
