Giveaway: The White Queen

The White Queen by Philippa Gregory is a little special to me, and not just because I really, really loved reading it.  It was the first review I posted to JRT when I created the blog in August, even though I'd read the book in June.  I was that excited about it.

The first in a stunning new series, The Cousins War, is set amid the tumult and intrigue of The War of the Roses. Internationally bestselling author Philippa Gregory brings this family drama to colourful life through its women, beginning with the story of Elizabeth Woodville, the White Queen
The White Queen tells the story of a common woman who ascends to royalty by virtue of her beauty, a woman who rises to the demands of her position and fights tenaciously for the success of her family, a woman whose two sons become the central figures in a mystery that has confounded historians for centuries: the Princes in the Tower whose fate remains unknown to this day. From her uniquely qualified perspective, Philippa Gregory explores the most famous unsolved mystery, informed by impeccable research and framed by her inimitable storytelling skills.

Thanks to the fabulous Ally at Simon & Schuster UK, I have a surprise for you!  The paperback release of The White Queen was April 15th (today).  To celebrate, JRT is giving away 5 copies!

All you have to do to enter is comment with:

1. Your name
2. Your e-mail address

That's it!  The contest is open internationally.  You must provide an e-mail address so I can contact the winner for mailing information at the end.
