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

The Healer's Apprentice by Melanie Dickerson ~ In author Melanie Dickerson's new historical romance, a young healer's apprentice named Rose believes she will never marry ... until she meets Lord Hamlin, the future ruler of her region. Hamlin is everything she could ever want---kind, understanding, and a man of faith---but her low station and the fact he's already betrothed to a mysterious woman makes their romance impossible. As Lord Hamlin seeks to find the sorcerer who cursed his future bride, Rose's life spins toward confusion. A creative retelling of the classic Sleeping Beauty tale.

On This Day by Dianne Neal Matthews ~ Discover daily spiritual truth and application gleaned each day from current events and historic happenings. Each devotional relates something signifi cant that happened on that day and then connects the reader with a devotional takeaway from that event. Readers will experience spiritual truths and connection with God through lessons from the past.

The One Year Women of the Bible by Dianne Neal Matthews ~Each devotional in The One Year Women of the Bible focuses on a woman in the Bible and a woman today. You'll hear the perspective of faithful women like Sarah, Elizabeth, and Abigail along with the less faithful women, such as Jezebel. You'll also read about everyday contemporary women struggling with busyness and commitment to God. Dianne Matthews masterfully transitions to the scriptural account of a woman in the Bible who faced a similar story or issue and brings readers the spiritual lessons and direction to apply to our own lives.

Drawing Closer to God by Dianne Neal Matthews ~ The Bible is full of questions asked by God, Jesus, ordinary people, Satan, and even a donkey. Some are questions that we've wrestled with but have been reluctant to voice. Others are asked to comfort, to convict, or to reinforce spiritual principles. Drawing Closer to God examines 365 of these questions to uncover biblical truth readers can apply personally to their lives. Each devotional concludes with a question designed to encourage reflection and prayer, leaving readers with practical takeaway and a renewed appreciation for God's Word.

Love Finds You in Silver City, Idaho by Janelle Mowery ~ It’s 1869, and chaos rules Silver City. As Rebekah Weaver recovers from an accident that has left her badly burned, she worries that her father’s handsome new assistant won’t see past her scarred exterior. Deputy Marshal Nathaniel Kirkland is working undercover to investigate a series of explosions in the mines and businesses of Silver City. When ominous notes begin appearing on townspeople’s doors, Nate needs Rebekah’s help to uncover the identity of the perpetrator. As they work together, Nate begins to speculate that Rebekah’s "accident" was really a case of intentional sabotage - and that she might still be in danger.

Winners will be announced on Saturday, 10/09/10.
