Giveaway: Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier






About Ruby Red by Kierstin Gier:
 
Gwyneth Shepherd's sophisticated, beautiful cousin Charlotte has been prepared her entire life for traveling through time. But unexpectedly, it is Gwyneth, who in the middle of class takes a sudden spin to a different era!

Gwyneth must now unearth the mystery of why her mother would lie about her birth date to ward off suspicion about her ability, brush up on her history, and work with Gideon--the time traveler from a similarly gifted family that passes the gene through its male line, and whose presence becomes, in time, less insufferable and more essential. Together, Gwyneth and Gideon journey through time to discover who, in the 18th century and in contemporary London, they can trust.

I'm excited to tell you about Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier which is the first book in a trilogy, translated from German and it is already an international bestseller. I first heard about this author and series from my cousin who lives in Germany and she raved about the book and the author.  I was thrilled when I found out that Ruby Red was translated into English so that I could read it. I have an advanced reading copy and can't wait to read it.

You can listen to and read an excerpt of Ruby Red, here


Kerstin Gier is the bestselling author of the Ruby Red trilogy, as well as several popular novels for adults.  Anthea Bell is the foremost translator of German literature in the world. And she thinks Ruby Red is just "charming"!

You can visit her website, here but it is in German.

Here is the German book cover, I find it interesting to see the different book covers:





Check out this book trailer for  Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier: 

People think time travel is all high-fashion and fabulous intrigue... but it's not! 16 year old Gwen takes us behind the scenes of a modern day time-traveling society, and gives us a sneak peak of her travel partner...swoon!
