Winter Extravaganza: Fallen Grace Giveaway


CONTEST CLOSED





THE PRIZE: Fallen Grace by Mary Hooper

SUMMARY:
Life has been nothing but unfair to Grace Parkes and her sister. Penniless, the two orphans manage to stay alive—but only barely, like so many on the streets of Victorian London. And Grace must bear a greater heartbreak, having become pregnant from terrible circumstances and then given birth to a stillborn baby. But the infant's death sets Grace on a new path, bringing her into contact with people who hold both riches and power. A great fraud has been perpetrated on young Grace and her sister, and they are the secret recipients of a most unusual legacy—if only they can find the means to claim it. Mary Hooper's latest offers Dickensian social commentary, as well as malicious fraud, mysterious secrets, and a riveting read. (Publishes on February 1, 2011.)

This book sounds very interesting, and I find myself very intrigued by the Dickens comparison. I am also very interested in seeing what new path the loss of her baby sets Grace on.
