In the Spirit of Giving...

Good morning all!

I am announcing a giveaway for a book, possibly two. This is another way of thanking you for all the visits to my blog in 2011.

The book I’m offering is a copy of the memoir A Stolen Life by Jaycee Dugard. It is the dramatic story of the author being held captive for eighteen years by someone who abused her. To learn more about it, you can see it on Amazon. This is a hardcover book.

I’ve had a goal for this blog… I’d really like to have 200 followers by Monday, January 1. Right now I have 196, which means I need at least four more. Here is an incentive to sign up, if you haven’t already… if I can reach 200 or more by Monday, I’ll do another drawing for a second book. This one is by Ursula Hegi, one of my favorite authors. Her book, Stones from the River is one of my all-time favorites. The book I’ll be giving away is Salt Dancers. It’s about inherited sorrow, when the main character finds herself pregnant at forty-one. She returns to her home in the Pacific Northwest to confront haunting memories of her past. You can find out more about it on Amazon. This is a paperback copy.

There is one hitch. You need to be a follower to enter the giveaway, so no “anonymous” entries, please. If you want to enter the giveaway, please leave a comment with your “sign-in” name and specify which book you’d like to receive.

I’ll be announcing the winner (or winners) on Monday and sending the book or books on Tuesday.

I hope your Christmas was wonderful. Mine was very enjoyable. It was great to have our sons, Paul and Tim, home to visit us.

My friend, Mary Ann, another former Amish person who writes the blog, A Joyful Chaos, has made a very wonderful announcement of the miracle that happened in her life during Christmas. Please click over to see her post. Congratulations, Mary Ann and family!
