Thanks to the folks at Transworld, we have one giveaway copy of ALISON GOODMAN's "The Two Pearls of Wisdom" (2008) for you to win. If you aren't familiar with this endearing fantasy title, you can read Trin's review here. She liked it quite a bit and calls it feminine and graceful; here is a snippet of what she had to say about it:
"...successfully manages to merge the essence of the Orient and a classical tale of a commoners (who is, in this case, also disadvantaged by being a cripple and a woman in a patriarchal society) rise to power and fame, all wrapped into a delightful story of intrigue, warfare and discovering one’s past. All in all, “The Two Pearls of Wisdom” is a very enjoyable read, which flows smoothly and never fails to hold your attention, but brings nothing new to the - full laden fantasy - table."
