Easter Weekend Giveaway.

Following on from the fine example of one of my fellow bloggers, I thought that I would give away one of my pre-loved books to a fellow book lover. This will be the first of many pre-loved give-aways.

The book I have chosen from my collection is one that I really enjoyed -- Brixton Beach by Roma Tearne.

Synopsis from back cover
When family tragedy strikes, Alice Fonseka, a dreamy, artistic child with a Singhalese mother and Tamil father, leaves the beautiful island of Sri Lanka. Unable to bear the injustice of what has happened, her family heads for England.
There, in the cold, urban landscape of London, Alice grows up, creating a life for herself, with all that this means: struggles, a home in London - and a blossoming of the art through which she expresses herself. but there is much she cannot find. Understanding. Peace. Lasting Love. she has nearly given up when, unbidden, it blooms brightly. 
Then on the clear summer morning of July 7, 2005, violence crosses her path again.


This is really a great book and very well written.

The book, as I said, is pre-loved but in good condition from a smoke-free home.

Please reply to this post if you are interested. I will put all the names in a hat on 30th April 2011 and pick a winner.

I don't have any rules that you need to follow. No questions to answer. You don't have to follow me, but it would be nice if you do, as I may do other give-aways that are for followers only.
