Giveaway: American Princess by Stephanie Marie Thornton

Presidents daughter

American Princess

A novel based on the life of first daughter Alice Roosevelt.  To say the woman was truly a force is a total understatement. I just can’t help but wonder why it’s taken so long for someone to discover this.

“Before there was Caroline Kennedy, Chelsea Clinton, or the Bush twins, Alice Roosevelt made headlines as the beloved First Daughter of President Theodore Roosevelt. Well ahead of her time, Alice was brash, bold, and unapologetic: she was destined to be a legend. “

This new novel of Alice’s life has been well-researched by Thornton. She’s managed to use some of Alice’s letters and has used them authentically.  What a treat for those of you history buffs.

I have one copy for giveaway. Please leave a comment below to enter. Only U.S. addresses, and no P.O. boxes, please. I shall choose a winner on Monday, March 18. Good luck!

Thank you Berkley for this fine giveaway. Let the comments begin!
