Win a Signed Copy of Always Emily by Michaela MacColl!

always emily by michael maccoll Win a Signed Copy of Always Emily by Michaela MacColl!In Always Emily, Michaela MacCall imagines a time before the famous sisters, Charlotte and Emily Brontë, were published authors, when they were both at Roe Head School as a teacher and student respectively. These two sisters are as opposite as can be, other than their passion for writing. While 19-year-old Charlotte is cautious and sensible, 17-year-old Emily is imaginative and stubborn. Before they become the authors of enduring works of classic literature, MacColl requires them to figure out the connection between a string of local burglaries, rumors that a neighbor’s death wasn’t an accident, and the appearance of a handsome and mysterious stranger on the moors. Will the girls be able to untangle these knots of fact and fiction before someone else is murdered?

For those who haven’t rush out to buy a copy on April 8, 2014, the day it was officially released, now is your chance to win an autographed copy of this historical YA mystery novel. Whether you’re fans of the Brontë sisters’ or MacColl’s writing, this giveaway is a great opportunity for US and Canadian residents to get your hands on the book.

This contest is open to anyone in the US or Canada, who enter between now and when it ends on May 9, 2014 at 11:59 pm EST. Simply fill out the Rafflecopter form below for your chance to win!

    I’ve always loved Jane Eyre so I guess Charlotte is my fav sister. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for commenting, Courtney! I loved Jane Eyre, too, but I also have a real love for Anne Brontë’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, too. :)

    Yes, Jane Eyre is incredible. That said, I might want to reread Wuthering Heights after reading After Emily. Maybe I didn’t get it when I first read it, so want to give it another chance.

    I love both Charlotte, Emily, Jane Eyre, and Wuthering Heights.

    Thanks for commenting, Jen! I had a hard time getting into Wuthering Heights, but I only tried reading it once. By contrast, I’ve read and loved Jane Eyre in high school and in several university classes. It’s one of my all-time favorite novels. After reading Always Emily though, I want to re-read Wuthering Heights. I think I’ll get more out of it.

    Sadly, I have not read any books by the Bronte sisters. Pathetic, I know. I am hoping to remedy that this school vacation!

    I’d have to say Charlotte – I love Jane Eyre, in fact I’m relistening to it on audio right now, but I love them both! Thanks for the giveaway, this book sounds incredible!

  11. April 20, 2014 at 6:46 pm

    Not surprising that you haven’t read it yet, Courtney, since it just came out this month. Hope you enjoy it!

  12. April 20, 2014 at 6:47 pm

    It’s not pathetic at all, Megan, but I can’t wait to hear what you think once you get the chance to read some or all of their novels. :)

    I’ve never listened to an audiobook of Jane Eyre. Who is reading the one that you have?

    My pleasure for the giveaway. I enjoyed Always Emily and hope that you do, too.

    This book looks so interesting. I love the Brontes. And how appropriate that you have this post and giveaway on Charlotte’s birthday.

    Oh, I meant The Tenant of Wildfell Hall…I looked it up on Goodreads :) Most of the 4 star reviews I read were by people who really enjoyed Jane Eyre too!

    It’s read by Wanda McCaddon. It was one of last year’s selection from the annual SYNC YA free audiobook event that they do. I can’t wait for it again this year – they always have really great selections!

    Thanks for commenting, Evangeline. It is really interesting, especially for those of us who love the Brontës. Yes, it is a nice coincidence. :)

    If you are interested in this book and/or also like Emily Dickinson, you might want to check out a similar novel that Michaela MacColl wrote called Nobody’s Secret.

    Oh…that makes more sense. It’s a great story about what happens after marriage. I’ve never read anything else like it from the Victorian period.

  20. April 21, 2014 at 3:19 pm

    Cool! Thanks for the info, Rachel! I appreciate it.

    Oh, that sounds right up my alley. Thanks for the rec.

  22. April 21, 2014 at 7:31 pm

    My pleasure! I’ve read all of Michaela MacColl’s novels. These are the only two based on historical writers, but all four of them feature a historical figure as either the main or secondary character and each. Personally I preferred the YA novels to that of her MG one, but they’re all worth checking out.

    Um…yeah, so I haven’t exactly read any of their books, but I plan to soon, I have one downloaded on my Kindle…

    No worries, Emma! Which one are you most looking forward to reading?
