Giveaway: Victoria & Albert: A Royal Love Story by Daisy Goodwin and Sara Sheridan

Giveaway: Victoria & Albert: A Royal Love Story by Daisy Goodwin and Sara SheridanAre you as excited as I am that we're just 10 days away from season 2 of Masterpiece's Victoria? I wasn't the only one who loved the first season; 16 million people watched the PBS premiere!

In order to celebrate the return of Victoria--and thanks to the nice people at Masterpiece on PBS and WGBH Education in Boston--I'm happy to be able to offer two of my readers a copy of Daisy Goodwin and Sara Sheridan's beautifully illustrated official companion book Victoria & Albert: A Royal Love Affair (St. Martin's Press).

Here's the publisher's summary:

The official companion to the second season of the PBS/Masterpiece drama Victoria by award-winning creator and screenwriter Daisy Goodwin.

More than 16 million viewers watched the first season of the Masterpiece presentation of Victoria, created and written by Daisy Goodwin—the highest-rated PBS drama in twenty years, second only to Downton Abbey. But what happened after the queen married her handsome prince? Did they live happily ever after, or did their marriage, like so many royal marriages past and present, fizzle into a loveless round of duty?

Giveaway: Victoria & Albert: A Royal Love Story by Daisy Goodwin and Sara SheridanThis all-new companion book by Daisy Goodwin and Sara Sheridan transports us to the private world of Victoria and Albert. Though first cousins, they could not have been more different: Victoria was impulsive, emotional, and capricious, Albert cautious, self-controlled, and logical. But together they forged a bond with each other and with their people that would change the world. Drawing on letters and diaries and fresh insights into royal history, this gorgeous book charts the constant ebb and flow of power within the couple’s surprisingly ardent and modern marriage.

Sumptuously illustrated and full of rich insider detail, Victoria & Albert takes us behind the scenes of the magnificent TV drama, including fascinating, in-depth information on the actors, the props, and the costumes--and bringing an extraordinary royal marriage even more fully to life.
The book is full of gorgeous photos from the show and includes interesting facts, quotes from Victoria's letters, and more. If you love the show, you'll love the book. Take a look at the tie-in trailer:

The Giveaway: All you have to do to be entered for a chance to win a copy of Victoria & Albert: A Royal Love Story by Daisy Goodwin and Sara Sheridan is to have a USA mailing address and to fill out the following form. I'll pick two winners via a random number generator on January 12, and the good people at Masterpiece PBS will mail a copy to two of my readers. Good luck! And as one of the promo's for the Victoria series says: Keep Calm and Watch!

I'm very excited for the next season. I read Daisy Goodwin's book before the series premiered and really enjoyed it.

Wow, I had no idea there are companion books for TV shows. I've never seen the show, though.
