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

Stars in the Night by Cara Putman ~ Hollywood 1942. When attorney Audra Schaeffer's sister disappears, Audra flies to Hollywood to find her but instead must identify her body. Determined to bring the killer to justice, Audra takes a job with the second Hollywood Victory Caravan. Together with Robert Garfield and other stars, she crisscrosses the southern United States in a campaign to sell war bonds. When two other women are found dead on the train, Audra knows the deaths are tied to that of her sister. Could the killer be the man with whom she's falling in love?

In a Heartbeat by Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy ~ First came the bestselling book, then the Oscar-nominated movie—the story of Michael Oher and the family who adopted him has become one of the most talked-about true stories of our time. But until now, Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy have never told this astonishing tale in their own way and with their own words.

For Leigh Anne and Sean, it all begins with family. Leigh Anne, the daughter of a tough-as-nails U.S. Marshal, decided early on that her mission was to raise children who would become "cheerful givers." Sean, who grew up poor, believed that one day he could provide a home that would be "a place of miracles." Together, they raised two remarkable children—Collins and Sean Jr.—who shared their deep Christian faith and their commitment to making a difference. And then one day Leigh Anne met a homeless African-American boy named Michael and decided that her family could be his. She and her husband taught Michael what this book teaches all of us: Everyone has a blind side, but a loving heart always sees a path toward true charity.

Michael Oher's improbable transformation could never have happened if Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy had not opened their hearts to him. In this compelling, funny, and profoundly inspiring book, the Tuohys take us on an extraordinary journey of faith and love—and teach us unforgettable lessons about the power of giving.

Winners will be announced on Saturday, 07/31/10.

  7. Good morning! Thank you all for stopping by to enter.

  8. I would love a chance to win either book. Please enter me in the drawing. Thanks so much.

  9. Know what I love about Cara's book? The cover! Isn't it just dynamite? The model reminds me of a classic 50s beauty. Her skin is enough to get covetous over, especially since I sprouted a pimple this morning. Right on my chin. I feel like the witch from Oz. But I digress. . .

  10. I would love to win either book this week. Thank you so very much for this great giveaway each week.
