New Giveaway! Enter for a chance to win Love Finds You in Victory Heights, Washington!

To enter for a chance to win this book simply post whether or not you lost a loved one who was in the military and which war they were in. I'll select a winner using the Randomizer program next Sunday! Best wishes!

Love Finds You in Victory Heights, Washington
Win a copy of this new Love Finds You book by Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss!

(I really want to read this one, but don't have the book, wah! I love WWII era fiction.)

About the book:

The Second World War has stolen Rosalie's fiance from her. But rather than wallow, Rosalie throws herself into her work at the Boeing plant in Victory Heights, shooting rivets into the B-17 bombers that will destroy the enemy. A local reporter dubs her Seattle's Own Rosie the Riveter, and her story lends inspiration to women across the country. While Rosalie's strong arms can bear the weight of this new responsibility, her heart cannot handle the intense feelings that begin to surface for Kenny, the handsome reporter. Fear of a second heartbreak is a powerful opponent - but will it claim victory over love?

While I have never lost a family member in the military, I am friends with people who have. The loss extends to friends as well, who are there to support the family left behind. My heart is with all the military and their family, as they sacrifice so much all the time. I would love to read this book as well, and thank you for the chance to win!

My mother worked at one of the naval stations during World War II and she knew many young men who died, including at Pearl Harbor.

I am very blessed to still have my dad who is 92. He is a veteran of
WWII and had some very close calls!
My brother couldn't serve in Vietnam because he was diabetic. My sister lost a close male friend who was only in Vietnam for a few days and was killed. Many thanks, Cindi

My Aunt Martha lost her husband on D day at Normandy. My Aunt Tavy was a real Rosy the Riveter. I hope that I can read this book to get a little bit of the feeling of what it was like for her to put those rivets in the plane.

I have thankfully never lost a family member in war, but did lose a close friend in Viet Nam.

I love that Tricia's books have war themes and appreciate the chance to win LFY in Victory Heights.

I've had loved ones who have served our country in war time but not one who was lost. My brother-in-law was a bomber pilot and was shot down but rescued during WWII. I'm so proud of them all.

Thankfully, I have not lost a loved one in the war. However, a friend that was over in Afghanistan recently had to return to the States after suffering major injuries in an explosion. He is now slowly but surely on his way to a full recovery.

Would love to read this book. I have not lost a loved one in a war but my father served in the Army (he served in the more current conflicts like Panama and Desert Storm). I was in the Army (no wars). I married a man in the Army who served in Panama and Desert Storm. His father was in Korea. I know I have older relatives who also served in the Army and one (at least) in the Navy. So we have a history of military service but no losses in war that I'm aware of.

I have 2 stories very similar. I had a cousin I never knew but they said when he had to go the next day, he walked all thru the house and looked over every room but never came home again. His body was never found but thought he fell off a boat. I am not sure if it was WWI or II. Then during the Viet Nam war, I had a very good friend who drove all over town and looked it over. I drove with him and he said, I'll never be back. Of course I told him to quit talking silly. He stepped on a land mine and blew up. So sad.... he was a good friend and died bravely, I know. I'd love to have this book; it looks wonderful. Thanks!

Personally, I have not lost a close loved one in a war; however my best friend's husband was captured in Vietnam and reportedly died in a prison camp from dysentery. We were both wives of career military officers. What was even more sorrowful about his capture is that my husband and I were watching the evening news, and his capture was recorded by a news reporter. That was a terrible shock for my friend to see that piece being broadcast on the evening news. I was in touch with her immediately, and was told that she was handling things the best she could and that the news station had informed her they would send her the tape. Real life is much stranger and more diabolical than fiction could ever be. I enjoy historical fiction and thank you for the chance to win this book.

Blessing Be in Christ,

Being the wife of a military career officer, I've experienced the anxiety and constant prayers for my husband who served twice in the Vietnam war. Two whole years that he was gone, and the children and I had to manage life knowing that anytime a phone call or seeing a man in uniform ringing the doorbell might be news we never wanted to hear. Communication was lacking because sometimes it would take longer than usual for letters to arrive at home...or on the war zone where my husband was serving. It can be a tense situation, but we had to have faith and keep on keeping on as usual at home. One never really gets accommodated to this kind of existing when the family is apart and we know it's only temporary...we hope. I'm proud of my family and my husband during the absences. It can be considered a sacrifice, but one that is required of military families. We all trust in God in our household. It's not easy, but a true learning experience in patience and growth for all.

God Bless America,
Barb Shelton

I haven't lost one of my immediate family members. My brother currently serves in the Army and just came home from Iraq, my dad served in the Army and the Vietnam War and youngest son is the the Army National Guard. However, I am a Blue Star Mother and in the past few months we have layed to rest 4 of our sons. The pain and the agony that these families go through is beyond imaginable. The honor and the hero that they are for standing up for our country is amazing! One that we will have a memorial service for on saturday was a young man who jumped in a river in Afghanistan to save an Afghan police officer who had fallen into the river. As you get through the story your realize that this young man jumped in to save not a comrade or an american but the enemy and he didn't know how to swim. He jumped in to save him out of reaction and out the right thing to do. Thank you to all our troops who serve our country. May they all come home safely. May we all give them the respect that they deserve.

My two sons were in the military during the early days of the Iraq war. Their being deployed was always present in my mind. Fortunately, neither of them were deployed to the war. I did have a great uncle who served during WWII as well as my father-in-law served during WWII. I am thankful for those who do fight for our freedom. I would love to win this book. It sounds wonderful!
