Christy English delves into the early life of the legendary Eleanor of Aquitaine in her new historical novel, To Be Queen (New American Library, paperback, $15.00, releases April 5th). After her father's sudden death, fifteen-year-old Alienor is quickly crowned Duchess of Aquitaine and betrothed to King Louis VII. When her new husband cannot pronounce her given name, Alienor becomes Eleanor, Queen of France. Although Louis is enamored of his bride, the newly crowned king is easily manipulated by the church and a God that Eleanor doesn't believe in. Now, if she can find the strength to fight for what she wants, Eleanor may finally find the passion she has longed for, and the means to fulfill her legacy as Queen. Christy English is a writer of historical fiction centering on Eleanor of Aquitaine, Alais of France, and the Plantagenets of the 12th Century. She has a Bachelor's in History from Duke University. When she is not writing, she is at the theatre, visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art, or roller skating in Riverside Park. Her first novel, The Queen's Pawn, is also available. If you cannot make the event, you can reserve a personalized copy of either of Ms. English's books by contacting Fiction Addiction in advance at 864-675-0540 or at email@example.com.
