Book Giveaway: In the King's Arms

TNBBC has another cool giveaway to offer!

To celebrate it's recent release,
Sonia Taitz will be appearing over at TNBBC on goodreads
on November 15th to discuss her novel 

and we are giving away 3 domestic copies 
to get the discussion going!

(Sorry International Peeps!)

Here is the Goodreads description:

Lily Taub is the brilliant, beautiful and headstrong American daughter of Holocaust survivors. Seeking relief from their traumatized world, Lily escapes to Oxford University, where she meets Julian Aiken — black sheep of an aristocratic English family. When Lily is invited to the family’s ancestral home over Christmas vacation, her deepening romance with young Julian is crossed by a shocking accident that affects them all. Julian must face the harsh disapproval of his anti-Semitic family, who consider Lily a destructive force, not only in Julian’s life, but to their own sense of order. In the King's Arms is a lyrical, literary novel about the healing possibility of love.

  4. This book sounds so good! I'd love to participate in the discussion with the author and my fellow TNBBCers, Lori!

    I am a romantic at heart, and I do believe that love can conquer all. I think it needs to be true love, which is sometimes hard and imperfect, but if two people are willing to do whatever it takes to be together, their love for each other will see them through the difficult times!

    Would love to see how love conquers all in this book! I can be reached at

    Thanks for hosting another fab giveaway & discussion, Lori :) ~Katie

  5. The author (admittedly, I know her...) has proven that love has conquered all in marrying the love of her life who later converted to Judaism! As a "half-breed," I know these interfaith dilemmas can be delicate and challenging. But isn't there always an obstacle in the path to love? Every man I know likes a chase...and most women, too.

  6. The belief that love conquers all is what keeps me going many days. I would like very much to have a copy of this book and I will participate in the discussion.
