Tomorrow is the final day of the blog tour for this much anticipated book. Have you been reading the reviews? My ShinyNewBooks colleague Annabel loved it - this is what she said about it here yesterday:
In the Name of the Family is a novel to really get stuck into – the 444 pages raced by as I immersed myself in ambition, political intrigue and the trials of Renaissance marriage of this fascinating family.
Here's a quote from Bookandbrew.net
It takes place in Renaissance Italy, is packed with intrigue and deception, and has a cracking cast of familiar but reimagined characters. What’s not to love?
There's a splendidly detailed review on girlwithherheadinabook, which ends:
it was wonderful to be reminded of all those other families in history whose lives were truly stranger than fiction and who, through the pen of an adept author, are ready to capture our imaginations all over again.

And now here's a great offer. Virago has kindly offered to send three free books out to interested readers. All you have to do is put your name in the comments, plus a way you can be privately contacted, and you'll be entered in the draw.
So, if you love Sarah Dunant, are fascinated by Renaissance Italy and the goings on of the Borgias, or just fancy immersing yourself in a fascinating and absorbing read, please have a go!
