This week, The Borrowed Book is giving away FOUR great books:


The Country House Courtship by Linore Burkard ~ The year is 1818 and Miss Beatrice Forsythe is determined to marry well. After all, her sister, Ariana, married The Paragon, Mr. Phillip Mornay, five years earlier--which all but guarantees that she, Beatrice, can also make a famous match to a wealthy man.

But her sister and husband have disappeared from high society as they raise a family at their country estate. Can Beatrice persuade them to chaperone her in London? And what about Beatrice's business with the curate, Mr. O’Brien, whom she rashly promised to marry years earlier. At seventeen now, she has no wish to marry a mere clergyman—despite his agreeable countenance and gentle, understanding ways.

Battlefields and Blessings by Jocelyn Green is a 365-day collection of inspiring stories of courage perseverance and faith-based on firsthand accounts of more than seventy who have served in the war in Iraq and Afghanistan.Through multiple, never-before-told stories, readers will uncover the personal challenges of the battlfield. You’ll hear about the experiences and perspectives of deployed soldiers; chaplains; military wives, widows, parents and siblings; organizers of humanitarian efforts; veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder; missionaries to the Middle East and more.

Faith Deployed by Jocelyn Green speaks to relevant issues the miltary wife faces both in war and peace time. Fourteen other Christian military wives have contributed to this volume, hailing from all branches of service. With such a wide range of experiences (including active duty, reserves and National Guard), every military wife can relate to something in this book.

Love Finds You in Hershey, Pennsylvania by Cerella Sechrist ~ Sadie Spencer has learned that in life, as well as in food, sour balances sweet. Returning to her hometown of Hershey with a five-year-old daughter, she manages to rise from the ashes following the death of her husband and the passing of her mother and the dissolution of her career as a TV chef. She opens a restaurant and looks forward to savoring the sweet side of lifeuntil a handsome Russian entrepreneur arrives in town, apparently intent on opening up his own restaurant in direct competition to hers. Sadie becomes obsessed with honing the one skill shes never hadcreating dessertsto keep up with her adversary and in the process, she finds a love thats simply icing on the cake.

Winners will be announced on Saturday, 02/27/10.

I am so touched and impressed by the response to the military books! Jocelyn, bless you, my friend, for your precious ministry to our servicemen and women.

Four of my brothers-in-law served in the military. Currently, I have one nephew (who just got back from Iraq) and one friend who was just deployed there. What a blessing it is to see such support from all of you! My prayers go to you all, and to our troops overseas and at home.
