I’m delighted to be kicking off the blog tour with a fantastic giveway for you today – you have the chance to win a hardback copy of the rather beautiful Court of Lions by Jane Johnson. It is published today by Head of Zeus in hardback and as an ebook with the paperback to follow next January.
About the book
Sometimes surrender is more courageous than resistance.
Kate Fordham arrived in the sunlit city of Granada a year ago. In the shadow of the Alhambra, one of the most beautiful places on Earth, she works as a waitress serving tourists in a busy bar. She pretends she’s happy with her new life – but how could she be? Kate’s alone, afraid and hiding under a false name.
And fate is about to bring her face-to-face with he greatest fear.
Five centuries ago, a message, in a hand few could read, was inscribed in blood on a stolen scrap of paper. The paper was folded and pressed into one of the Alhambra’s walls. There it has lain, undisturbed by the tides of history – the Fall of Granada, the expulsion of its last Sultan – until Kate discovers it.
Born of love, in a time of danger and desperation, the fragment will be the catalyst that changes Kate’s life forever.
Court of Lions bridges time, interweaving the stories of a woman who must confront her unimaginable past and a man who must face an unthinkable future, bringing one of history’s great turning points to life in an epic saga of romance and redemption.
