We are happy to announce that author Nicole Galland will be coming to Book Club Girl on Air! Join us at 7 PM on Tuesday, July 23rd to hear Nicole chatting about her newest novel, Godiva, which goes on sale July 2nd. Nicole is also the author of I, Iago, Revenge of the Rose, Crossed, and The Fool's Tale.
According to legend, Lady Godiva lifted the unfair taxation of her people by her husband, Leofric, Earl of Mercia, by riding through the streets of Coventry wearing only a smile. It's a story that's kept tongues wagging for nearly a thousand years. But what would drive a lady of the court to take off everything and risk her reputation, her life, even her wardrobe—all for a few peasants' pennies?
In this daringly original, charmingly twisted take on an oft-imagined tale, Nicole Galland exposes a provocative view of Godiva not only in the flesh, but in all her glory. With history exonerating her dear husband, Godiva, helped along by her steadfast companion the abbess Edgiva, defies the tyranny of a new royal villain. Never before has Countess Godiva's ride into infamy—and into an unexpected adventure of romance, deceit, and naked intrigue—been told quite like this.
We have 10 copies of Godiva to give to 10 people who comment that they can participate in our show on Tuesday, July 23rd at 7 pm EST. We'll pick 10 random commenters from anyone who posts by 11:59pm Friday, June 28.
