I'm giving away Learning to Fly by Roxanne Henke.

To enter to win simply post a comment. Only people in the USA or Canada may enter. Thanks! And don't forget to leave me a way to contact you if you win!


About the book:

Nervous new mom Susan feels like she may never get a handle on "the mothering thing"---so she's grateful when a chance meeting reconnects her with JoJo, an acquaintance with a daughter the same age. Over the years, the family friendships deepen, but as graduation nears, will they be ready to let their girls fly?

My thoughts:

I started this book and it was interesting. I don't have a daughter and my mother died 10 years ago, and was in the hospital dying around this time of the year, so I'm not sure if this book will be painful for me or healing. We'll see. The opening was good, though. :)

I haven't read anything by this author. I have a daughter and two sons. There is a different bond between a mother and a daughter. I know my mother and I talk everyday. I would love to read this novel. It sounds like something I would enjoy. I am sorry about your mother and I will keep you in my prayers.

Michelle, my oldest, and a daughter, will be graduating in a year and it's a very emotional time for me. Whether or not I win the book, it'll probably be a very sobering book to get my hands on.

Blessings,
