As a part of the Dreaming of Books Giveaway Hop, I'm holding a giveaway for your choice of one of the following books:
A Play of Heresy by Margaret Frazer is a historical mystery. You can read my review here.
In the early summer of 1438, Joliffe and his fellow players have arrived in Coventry for the theatrical and religious festival of Corpus Christi. Employed by several of the city's rich and powerful merchant guilds, they plan to present two of the many plays extravagantly depicting all of God's story with pomp and pageantry. When the merchant Master Kydwa goes missing, Joliffe uses his skills as a spy to uncover what's going on.
Shadow of Colossus by T.L. Higley is a Christian historical set in 227 B.C. in Rhodes. You can read my review here.
In the ten years that Tessa of Delos has been in bondage as a hetaeira, a high-priced Greek courtesan to a wealthy politician, she has learned to abandon all desire for freedom and love. But when her owner meets a violent death, Tessa is given the chance to be free—if she can hide the truth of his death and maintain a masquerade until escape is possible. Now Tessa must battle for her own freedom and for those she is beginning to love, as forces collide that will shatter the island’s peace and bring even its mighty Colossus to its knees.
This contest is for USA & Canada residents only.
