Book Giveaway | Joanne Bischof's The Lady and the Lionheart



Hello, happy readers! Welcome to Finding Wonderland. If you're new here and stumbled across this blog through this giveaway, thanks so much for visiting. Next month marks five years in the blogging world for this blog. We're celebrating with some fun things like posts that offer some helpful tips on blogging, personal reflections on why I blog as I do, and of course, there are some fun giveaways in the works. (At least I hope they'll be fun!) Today, we're kicking off the string of giveaways early because I read the featured novel a week ago and haven't stopped thinking about it since.


Before we get the specific book giveaway stats (the details of the book, the perpetual pesky rules, etc.), let me just say this: if you like romantic, atmospheric historical novels that dig deeper, you'll want to read Joanne's latest novel. It's a stunner.

THE LADY AND THE LIONHEART

Raised amid the fame and mystique of the Big Top, Charlie Lionheart holds the audience in the palm of his hand. But while his act captivates thousands, it’s away from the spotlight where his true heart lies. Here he humbly cares for his pride of lions as if they were his brothers, a skill of bravery and strength that has prepared him for his most challenging fe 
at yet—freeing an orphaned infant from the dark bondage of a sideshow. A trade so costly, it requires his life in exchange for hers, leaving him tarnished by the price of that choice.

As the circus tents are raised on the outskirts of Roanoke, nurse Ella Beckley arrives to tend to this Gypsy girl. All under the watchful eye of a guardian who not only bears a striking resemblance to the child, but who protects the baby with a love that wraps around Ella’s own tragic past, awakening a hope that goodness may yet reign. When their forbidden friendship deepens, Charlie dares to ask for her heart, bringing her behind the curtain of his secret world to reveal the sacrifice that gave hope to one little girl—boldly showing Ella that while her tattered faith is deeply scarred, the only marks that need be permanent are his own.

  3. I'm currently reading Traces of Guilt by Dee Henderson. Your review reminded me of The Ringmaster's Wife, which is another book set in the circus world! It's also on my list 😊

    1. The Ringmaster's Wife is stunning too, Becca. If you like this era, you'll enjoy both novels. Best of luck.

      Three cheers for Dee Henderson. My favorite (to date) from her are the O'Malley books. :)

  11. This looks wonderful! I haven't read anything by her yet even though there are a couple waiting on my Kindle... gotta move them to the top with such stellar recommendations :) I just read and loved an indie novel which is the third in a series set just at the beginning of the Revolutionary War. The three books are So Fair a Lady, So True a Love, and So Rare a Gift by Amber Lynn Perry. All wonderful and the ebooks are on sale over the next couple days.

    1. OhMyGoodness, yes, Heidi. Joanne's novels are delight from opening page to final word. This one is especially gorgeous because it has reflections of a fairytale and for me, that's bookish kryptonite. ;)

      I've heard of Amber's novels. I'm pleased to have a trusted recommendation for them; thanks! I'll definitely have to look into reading them. :)
