Giveaway for SACRED TREASON by James Forrester

I'm delighted to offer a giveaway of SACRED TREASON by James Forrester, with the generosity of his US publisher, Sourcebooks.

Set in 1563, rumors against the young Queen Elizabeth have plunged England into a state of fear and suspicion. Despite being descended from treasonous Catholic lineage, William Harley has managed to earn the high-ranking position in the queen’s court, until a late-night knock on the door changes his life. A friend visits William, begging him to hide a puzzling manuscript. It seems harmless, but as William begins to unravel the clues inside, he realizes that he’s been entrusted with a dangerous secret about the queen’s mother, Anne Boleyn – an explosive mix of faith and fear that could tear his family, and the country, apart.

Acclaimed historian Ian Mortimer is well-versed in the drama of Tudor times. A Fellow of Royal Historical Society, his non-fiction handbook The Time Traveler’s Guide to Medieval England was a surprise bestseller in 2009. Inspired by Mortimer’s research in the British National Archives, Sacred Treason is the first installment in an electrifying trilogy set in the tumultuous early years of Elizabethan England. Published under the pseudonym James Forrester, this is the historian’s first novel, combining factual detail with a chilling conspiracy.

To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment here on this post. The giveaway is open to US and Canada residents only. The winner will be announced here on November 5. Please do check back to see if you have won, so we can obtain your mailing address to send the book.

Thank you and good luck to all!
