Historical or Contemporary giveaway? You decide which novel you get.

Here are the books to be given away. Let me know which book you think should be given away first and I'll put your name in the hat for that book. If you can't decide (because they both sound great) then I will enter you into each drawing. Ready? Here are the descriptions...


Loving Liza Jane follows 21-year-old Eliza Jane Meriwether from Boston to Little Hickman, Kentucky in the year 1895. Na├»ve, but full of confidence and zeal, Eliza will assume the job as Little Hickman’s schoolteacher. But when she first rides into town on a ramshackle buckboard, her initial thought is, “Oh, Lord, what have I done?” Kentucky is nothing like her native Boston. Will she ever grow accustomed to its rolling hills and wide open spaces, not to mention the lack of modern conveniences? Although filled with doubts, she is convinced God has led her to this point, and soon the new schoolteacher is beloved by all, including Benjamin Broughton, a handsome widower with two young children. Trouble is her contract implicitly states, “marriage or any other unseemly behavior by women teachers is improper and will thereby result in immediate dismissal”. Liza has a lot to learn about God’s perfect plan for her life.




When tragedy strikes, can love survive? Struggling through the tragic loss of a child, Jeff and Maddie Bowman experience the immense pain and grief brought about by a broken heart and a marriage severely strained and headed toward divorce. Feeling completely hopeless, Maddie questions whether life will ever be normal again. Then, when faced with having to care for a precocious little boy, Maddie slowly realizes how to let God be in control even when life is crashing down around her. The love she finds will give her hope and strength to make it through every storm.

I'll go for either one:-)

Being a cover-freak, I like Through Every Storm but really, I like both stories because they seem reality-oriented and they are something we can all sympathize with.

Donna W said...

The first one reminds me of "Christy," so I'd go for that. It's amazing how much our culture has changed in a relatively short period of time.

Being a new believer, I'm always looking for books that will help nurture my faith and keep me growing as a Christian. Sharlene's books sound like the kind of books I'd very much like to read. Pls enter me for both drawings.
