Meet Contestant #6, a Historical Fiction!

A bit about this contestant:
Contestant #6 is all about the intrigue. In eighteenth-century France, surrounded by the decadence of Versailles through a new era of revolution, it's important to remember both where you came from and where you end up. What history should this contestant know about you?

The first words they'll say to you (a snippet from the first page):
Paris 1793
She runs after the tumbling cart, her heart tripping, racing, tripping again.
      The morning is crisp, the sky robin’s-egg blue. The streets are empty. Houses are shuttered, doors locked. Here and there chimneys belch plumes of thick smoke. Traitors are burning their sins, she had heard. Madame Guillotine is not swift enough.

I love Once Upon a Book Club. Each month offers a book with a collection of gifts that bring the words on the pages to life. My collection is growing and I even had to purchased new book shelves. I love the boxes!

Once Upon a Book Club is a reader’s delight. The concept of this book box is so unique, it combines your love of reading with the joy opening presents.

The gifts truly bring the story to life and perfectly match what’s happening in the story. For example-the main character might have gotten a bracelet from her best friend in the story. And then you get that bracelet as a gift! It’s so fun because it’s an immersive experience.
