Pope Joan giveaway!

 

 In honor of the re-release of Pope Joan by Donna Woolfolk Cross I would like to welcome you to the Pope Joan giveaway!  Please note that the giveaway copy has this cover and is NOT the edition shown above.

Pope Joan is being re-released by Three Rivers Press and will be available on June 9, 2009.

Please stay tuned in the next few weeks for my review AND an interview with Donna!
Synopsis: For a thousand years her existence has been denied. She is the legend that will not die–Pope Joan, the ninth-century woman who disguised herself as a man and rose to become the only female ever to sit on the throne of St. Peter. Now in this riveting novel, Donna Woolfolk Cross paints a sweeping portrait of an unforgettable heroine who struggles against restrictions her soul cannot accept.

Brilliant and talented, young Joan rebels against medieval social strictures forbidding women to learn. When her brother is brutally killed during a Viking attack, Joan takes up his cloak–and his identity–and enters the monastery of Fulda. As Brother John Anglicus, Joan distinguishes herself as a great scholar and healer. Eventually, she is drawn to Rome, where she becomes enmeshed in a dangerous web of love, passion, and politics. Triumphing over appalling odds, she finally attains the highest office in Christendom–wielding a power greater than any woman before or since. But such power always comes at a price . . .

In this international bestseller, Cross brings the Dark Ages to life in all their brutal splendor and shares the dramatic story of a woman whose strength of vision led her to defy the social restrictions of her day.

Giveaway 411:
  • Giveaway ends on June 8th. Winner will be announced on June 9th.
  • Open to all domestic and international entries. Passages loves our neighbors across the water =)
  • For 5 additional entries sign up as a follower; if you already are a follower you will automatically get this.

  9. Awesome! I read a similar book when I was about 12 years old. I think it was about a woman who became a monk, fell in love with another monk while in disguise, and wound up being stoned to death. Cheerful book.

  76. A prince had a curse put on him when he was a little boy. He could only speak two words every year. But, if he didn't speak for a whole year, he would then be able to speak 4 words the next year and so on.

    One day he met a princess named Josie and he wanted to say "My Princess".

    The next year he saw her he wanted to say "My princess, i love you".

    The third year he saw her he wanted to say "My princess I love you, will you marry me?" But, the young prince, now growing older knew he would have to wait a couple more years.

    So, on the fifth year, excited to finally present his question, he visited the princess.

    He approached her respectfully and asked, "JOSIE, MY PRINCESS, I LOVE YOU. WILL YOU MARRY ME?"

    And the princess said, "Pardon?"

    *****
    I get bored of always saying "Please enter me!!"
