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