New giveaway! Now I'm giving away Always Remembered by Janelle Mowery

About the book:

Rosa Carter plans for the day she can leave the Alamo to find a better, safer life elsewhere. But her stepfather, a man with a mean streak wide as the Texas sky, has hidden her mother away in order to force Rosa to deliver valuable information about the Alamo’s garrison and ammunitions stores. Chances of escape look impossible.

Miles Fitch wants to regain his father’s land in south Texas, so he joins the fight for freedom from Mexico. Inside the Alamo, he is drawn to a dark-eyed beauty named Rosa…until he begins to suspect that she is betraying the cause of the Texans and feeding info to the Mexican army. Forced to leave the mission, Rosa watches helplessly as Santa Ana’s army closes in. Did the man she love somehow escape or survive the battle? And if he did, how will she ever prove to him that she is not a traitor?

My thoughts: I don't have a copy of this book to review, but it sounds interesting! Make sure to answer the question and leave me a way to contact you if your name is drawn. Thanks!

Now for the question:  What is the most intriguing thing about the history of The Alamo in your opinion? 

A winner will be selected using "the hat" randomizer program next Sunday.

I don't know a ton of the history of Alamo, so this book sounds interesting to me. I would say, I find it interesting how, within our small country there were so many wars to get established!

I live in Texas, so I'm familiar with the Alamo and it's history. I've been to see it several times. :)

For me the most intriguing thing about the Alamo's history is the night before the battle. When the general (Texan general, I can't remember his name)drew a line in the dirt and basically asked those who were willing to stay and fight and die to cross it. And those who weren't to stay on the one side. If I remember right, all but one man crossed the line. And this includes a dying general who asked to be carried across it.

I was amazed that fighters from Scotland were involved. Although it's not so surprising. They are hard workers and hard fighters. The whole atmosphere in there intrigues me. It's a church and a place of death at the same time. It's one of five missions on the Mission Trail. I love the place. Even visited once on a Segway. Haha

I would love to read this book. Americans have so much interesting history,and I am a history buff. My husband is an American and we are hoping to move down to his home in Idaho. We have 2 adopted children so this is slowing us down alot. I love the introduction to your book and need to find out what happens:)
