Giveaway Day 7


I apologize for skipping out on you yesterday. We FINALLY saw the sun after weeks of rain and cold (it's back to rain today) so I spend the entire day outside. Here is my final giveaway in my Week of Book Giveaways. Won't be the final one ever, because from here on, I'll be having a giveaway once a week. Like I mentioned before, I literally have stacks and stacks of books here just waiting for new homes.


Today's book to give away is Washington's Lady by Nancy Moser, from Bethany House Publishers.

It has been said that without George Washington there would be no United States. But without Martha, there would be no George Washington. He called her "my other self."Who was this woman who captured the heart of our country's founder?

She dreams of a quiet life with her beloved George, but war looms...Though still a young woman, Martha Dandridge Custis was a wealthy, attractive widow and the mother of two small children with no desire to remarry. But when a striking war hero steps into her life, she realizes that she is ready to love again. She is courted by, then marries the French and Indian War hero. Yet she wonders whether this man, accustomed to courageous military exploits, can settle down to a simple life of farming and being a father to her children.

Even as she longs for domestic bliss, Martha soon realizes she will have to risk everything dear to her and find the courage to get behind a dream much larger than her own.

Her new life as Martha Washington took her through blissful times at Mount Vernon, family tragedies, six years of her husband's absence during the Revolutionary War, and her position as a reluctant First Lady.

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED

What I am looking forward to reading. Oh boy, I have a long list. I'd have to say A Passion Redeemed would be one (however I do have the original version Julie wrote, I just haven't had time to read it because it's a word doc.) SO that said, I'd love to win this book as I'm about 1/2 way through it but I only have a lousy ARC and Nancy sent me a sticker for the book but I need a final copy to stick it in. Plus if I won I'd finish reading the final copy and scrap the ARC. :)

Someday and Sunset by Karen Kingsbury

I'm looking forward to reading DragonLight by Donita K Paul. Nancy's books Just Jane and Mozart's sister were awesome, so I'm sure Washington's Lady will be just as good. :-)

I don't know if I'm every really WATING for a book. They always seem to fall in my lap with the message that I'm needing right then! I guess I'm waiting for Sharon Hinck's new novel, Stepping into Sunlight. This sounds great. I'm also very interested in Washington's Lady, now - what a great idea!!!
