FAVORITE BOOK GIVEAWAY- Great Maria by Cecelia Holland

I love this book so much, I want to share it. If you're a fan of historical fiction (or think you could become one) I recommend this remarkable novel.
My review is here.

And from the jacket back:

Her father is a robber baron...
Her husband has grand ambitions and a quick temper...
She will become...The Great Maria.
A lush portrait of the eleventh century that leaves out none of its harshest nature, Great Maria is Cecelia Holland at her most evocative. A mere fourteen years old, strong-willed Maria is betrothed to Richard. Theirs is a marriage of conflict, yet one that grows over the years into respect and partnership. As they struggle-- at times against each other, at times side-by-side-- Maria and Richard emerge as full-blooded characters you'll never forget.
