Discover the “Queen’s Choice” with the MMS Book Club

How fast is summer going!? I am not sure I am prepared for it to be moving into August already! We have been working through some amazing books, but it is time to reveal the AUGUST book that is coming your way! I am excited to read this one, and it was a recommendation from one of our members.  Everything I have seen about this book shows that is going to be a fabulous read!

This month we are reading through The Crossing Places by Elly Griffiths, and it is one of those “can’t put down” books. I hope that y’all are enjoying it as much as I am! For August, we are going to dive into The Queen’s Choice, by Anne O’Brien. Grab your copy from the library today!

Also, don’t forget to join our Summer Reading Program! We are playing Book Bingo this summer, and its a great way to discover old favorites, and add some new ones in as well! Come and join us today!


The Queen’s Choice – via goodreads.com

France, 1399: The Duke of Brittany is dead and his widow, Joanna of Navarre, has inherited control of their land – a testament to her intellect, integrity and political prowess.

Then comes an unprecedented proposal from Henry IV, King of England. The price of becoming his Queen? Abandoning her homeland, leaving her children, and sacrificing her independence.

Henry’s hold on the crown is unsteady and war is brewing. With the constant threat of rebellion, Henry will trust no-one – not even his new Queen. Crossing the channel is a dangerous prospect. But the union between Joanna and Henry would bring the chance of a vital alliance between two proud states – if they will allow it.

One question. Two paths. A choice that will make history.
