Giveaway: The Visitors

Sally Beauman's The Visitors made my top ten of 2014, although I still haven't reviewed it yet. (Sorry! I will someday!)

I was so taken with this novel, a kind of coming-of-age story set in the 1920s among Egyptologists, English peers, and the monied set. In some ways, this novel reads as two or three different kinds of books -- for good and for bad -- as our 11 year old narrator goes from glamorous Egypt back to the UK where she squares off with a new tutor-turned-stepmother before looking back on her life as an adult during World War II. But the voice is so compelling I couldn't stop reading.

The paperback has just been released by Harper Paperbacks, and I'm thrilled to be able to offer a giveaway copy. This is a beefy read at 544 pages, but just gripping.
