Mailbox Monday: March 1, 2010

Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page where we share what reads we have received in our mailboxes the previous week.

Here are the goodies that arrived for me last week:

 The Boleyn Wife by Brandy Purdy (won through Celtic Lady's blog)

"Shy, plain Lady Jane Parker feels out of place in Henry VIII's courtly world of glamour and intrigue--until she meets the handsome George Boleyn. Overjoyed when their fathers arrange a match, her dreams of a loving union are waylaid when she meets George's sister, Anne. For George is completely devoted to his sister, and cold and indifferent to his bride. As Anne acquires a wide circle of admirers, including King Henry, Jane's resentment grows. But if becoming Henry's queen makes Anne the most powerful woman in England, it also makes her highly vulnerable. And as Henry, desperate for a male heir, begins to tire of his mercurial wife, the stage is set for the ultimate betrayal...

Encompassing the reigns of five of Henry's queens, THE BOLEYN WIFE is an unforgettable story of ambition, lust, and jealousy, of the power of love to change the course of history, and of the terrible price of revenge."

A bit of an aside, but I won this book from Kathleen at Blog O' The Irish.  If you haven't had a chance to check out her blog, simply click HERE.  She has some terrific reviews and great giveaways so please stop by her blog and give it a read.  And be sure to congratulate her on her newest furry family member, Misty!

So what goodies arrived in your mailbox last week?
