New Giveaway: The Lady and the Unicorn by Tracy Chevalier (with new rules)

Okay kiddies, Miss Amy has a new giveaway for you!  I found a hardback copy of The Lady and The Unicorn by Tracy Chevalier, author of Girl With a Pearl Earring, at my local Goodwill store and seeing that I already have a copy I thought I would give one of my lovely readers a chance to win it!

Due to circumstances with another giveaway that I had recently, I decided to add a rule for my giveaway winners:  If you have already won a copy of the same giveaway on another blog, kindly let me know and I will draw another name. This way, EVERYONE has a chance to win at least 1 copy and not just one person winning several.  Sounds fair right?!  Honor system people, honor system!   


I have 1 hardback copy of The Lady and The Unicorn up for grabs. 

To enter, please leave a comment with your email address AND answer the poll question at the upper left corner of my site. 


SYNOPSIS:  A tour de force of history and imagination, The Lady and the Unicorn is Tracy Chevalier’s answer to the mystery behind one of the art world’s great masterpieces—a set of bewitching medieval tapestries that hangs today in the Cluny Museum in Paris. They appear to portray the seduction of a unicorn, but the story behind their making is unknown—until now.

Paris, 1490. A shrewd French nobleman commissions six lavish tapestries celebrating his rising status at Court. He hires the charismatic, arrogant, sublimely talented Nicolas des Innocents to design them. Nicolas creates havoc among the women in the house—mother and daughter, servant, and lady-in-waiting—before taking his designs north to the Brussels workshop where the tapestries are to be woven. There, master weaver Georges de la Chapelle risks everything he has to finish the tapestries—his finest, most intricate work—on time for his exacting French client. The results change all their lives—lives that have been captured in the tapestries, for those who know where to look.

In The Lady and the Unicorn, Tracy Chevalier weaves fact and fiction into a beautiful, timeless, and intriguing literary tapestry—an extraordinary story exquisitely told.


Giveaway ends:  December 14th.  US and International entries are accepted!

GOOD LUCK!
