I’m giving away two free copies of Robert Fripp’s Power of a Woman. Memoirs of a turbulent life: Eleanor of Aquitaine. If you’re interested in entering your name in the drawing, just leave a comment on this post. Friday will be the last day for new entries. I will select the winners at random and notify them by next week. Also, the author sent me some PDF timelines that go along with the book, and I can send those to the winners as well if you’re interested in having them.
*Note: I can only ship within the United States, so I apologize if you are not located within the U.S.
The book is a fictionalized autobiography of Eleanor of Aquitaine, told as if Eleanor were actually recounting her life to a young lady in her household.
While she dictates, Eleanor lives her roles again: duchess of Aquitaine, queen of France and warring courtier, patron of troubadours, crusader, queen and regent of England, empire builder, femme fatale and the subject of romantic verse, mother of too many sons, founder of her Court of Ladies in Poitiers, instigator and arbiter of family strife, scorned wife, banished exile, regent of England again, tax collector, ransom gatherer, peacemaker, matchmaker, and perpetual negotiator. At eighty-one years of age this magnificent lady dictates the royal progress of her life.
