Spring Book Giveaway--French Letters by Jack Woodville London





We are long overdue for a book giveaway, so I figured I better get myself in gear and post this message.

Travel to the small town of Tierra, Texas in the World War II historical novel, French Letters - Virgnia's War: Tierra, Texas 1944.

In the little town of Tierra, Texas, the young boys play war while the men are already off fighting Hitler and the Nazis. But Virginia has a war all her own. Dealing with a spiteful brother, a manipulative father, and a dark secret that threatens to be revealed, she lives her life under the watchful eyes of the entire town. Sometimes the casualities of war are not wounded on the battlefield.

You can read my full review of French Letters here.

Here are the rules for this contest:

1) Comment here with your working email address so that we can contact you if you win.

2) Get an additional entry for blogging about this contest. Leave a comment here telling us where you are blogged about it.

Contest ends on May 15, 2009. The winner will be announced at this blog on May 16, 2009.

This contest is open to residents of the United States and Canada only.

Good luck!

Sounds like a very interesting book. The soldiers who fight the wars are the main casualties of war, but the wives (or husbands) of the wounded or the widows (or widowers) of the dead and the children left behind without mothers or fathers are the casualties less heard of. I hope I win this book.

I often think WWII had to be hard for the women left behind in small towns. Thanks for the chance to win this book. asthenight at gmail dot com

Cheryl said...

I agree Deborah. I can't imagine being left behind while the men went off to war; trying to support the war efforts in certain ways while also trying to hold it together and hoping the men returned safely.

Thanks for your participation everyone. I'm thrilled to have you stopping by.
