Blogiversary Week Give-away: The Secret of Ravelston by Sergio Silveira

Jane Freemont is British young lady with a very big problem. She is modern girl...but she lives in early 19th Century. Jane has a critical, inquiring mind that is always ready to state her honest opinions--no matter whom she may inconvenience. This causes the young gentlemen to run away for her--for men surely can welcome women's criticism so much more than they do. But that's their loss.

Jane's older brother, and only living relative, has sent her to live far away where he believes her critical and inquiring mind will no longer create problems for him. But as Jane arrives in beautiful Ravelston, she becomes determined to discover the fate of another, yet much less privileged, young woman who has mysteriously vanished. In Ravelston no one seems to care about what happened to Mary Hale, who was seen as unimportant because she was poor. But Jane will risk everything, even her future, to find out the truth.

And she will discover that powerful love, unaccepted in oneself, can be the cruelest thing there is.
This book is available in e-format, so the give-away is International.

Edinburgh University's The Student Newspaper has a special promotion on The Secret of Ravelston and you can read two selected passages there: www.studentnewspaper.org/component/content/article/1755/1755

Ana will be reviewing this book at some point and the author will also be doing a guest post at a later date.

This give-away will close on July 16th. The author is willing to give away up to 10 copies of the book.

  10. I'm glad to have finally joined the flock of e-readers, though for now it's just the app on my android. There's still nothing quite like physical copies, but the electronic one's are a bit more portable to say the least.
