 TAKEN-     I have a copy of The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff, ISBN 9780812974157, that I can post to a wishlist. Just pm if you want it.

I also have a ragged, beat up, but totally readable copy of The Eagle and the Raven by Pauline Gedge, ISBN  0445045113, that I want to send as a freebie to anyone who wants it. Just pm me with your address. FC,FS.

Neither of these have been exposed to smoke, but my cat read The 19th Wife and said it sucked. She's way wrong though. It was a great read! I did enjoy the historical bits of the novel just a bit more than the modern day parts, but they both fit very well together and made for a great story.
