Welcome to the 3rd Annual Gratitude Giveaways Blog Hop from November 15th to 25th, hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer.
We have one copy for a US or Canadian address of The Girl on the Cliff ~ by Lucinda Riley.
It’s historical fiction set during WW1 in Ireland.
Blurb: To escape a recent heartbreak in New York, Grania Ryan returns to her family home on the wind-swept coast of Ireland. Here, on the cliff edge in the middle of a storm, she meets a young girl, Aurora Lisle, who will profoundly change her life.
Despite the warnings Grania receives from her mother to be wary of the Lisle family, Aurora and Grania forge a close friendship. Through a trove of old family letters dating from 1914, Grania begins to learn just how deeply their families’ histories are entwined. The horrors of World War I, the fate of a beautiful foundling child, and the irresistible lure of the ballet give rise to a legacy of heartache that leaves its imprint on each new generation. Ultimately, it will be Aurora whose uncanny intuition and indomitable spirit may be able to unlock the chains of the past.
(US: Atria Books, October 2012; Trade Paperback, 416 pages)(UK: Penguin, October 2011)
