Surprise Thursday Book Giveaway


I had the opportunity to review this book a little while ago, and it's a fantastic story. Today's giveaway is Beyond the Night by Marlo Schalesky.
Here's the book description:

They say love is blind. This time they’re right…

As a woman lies unconscious in a hospital bed, her husband waits beside her, urging her to wake up and come home. Between them lies an ocean of fear and the tenuous grip of memories long past. Memories of wonder. Of love. Memories of a girl named Madison and a boy named Paul…

Madison Foster knew she was going blind. But she didn’t want pity–not from her mother, not from her roommate, and especially not from her best friend Paul–the man she secretly loved.

Paul Tilden knew a good thing when he saw it. And a good thing was his friendship with Maddie Foster. That is, until he started to fall in love.

With the music of the seventies as their soundtrack and its groovy fashions as their scenery, Maddie and Paul were drawn together and driven apart. Then one night changed everything…forever.

And only now, when life tiptoes past the edge of yesterday, along the rim of today, can they glimpse the beauty that awaits them…beyond the night.

Intrigued? Here's how to enter:

1. Leave a comment, please include your e-mail address or your entry will be disqualified.

2. Subscribe to my blog, mention this giveaway on your blog, or, if you don't have a blog, e-mail five friends to tell them about it and include my e-mail address among those you send the message to and get two additional entries into the drawing.

Ok first PICK ME PICK ME!! :):) (lhmosca@gbis.com) this does sound like a great story.
Second, thank you for mentioning random.org. I have to do a random draw for my barrel race and didn't feel like writing out 80 + 62 names and horse names and draw #'s so that's an awesome tip!! :)
