In honor of Valentine’s Day (which is tomorrow), I thought I’d share my love of one of my favorite historical fiction writers.
Thanks to the generosity of the author, one lucky winner will win a SIGNED, first edition hardcover of Madame Tussaud as well as a pair of Marie Antoinette cupcake earrings – pictured to the right (click on the picture to enjoy a larger, more detailed view).
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Michelle Moran’s latest novel (being released February 15th) is set in the tumultuous period of the French Revolution and features a fascinating female character. Madame Tussaud spans five years from the budding revolution to the Reign of Terror, and brings the reader “into the world of an incredible heroine whose talent for wax modeling saved her life and preserved the faces of a vanished kingdom.“
