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

The Miracle of Mercy Land by River Jordan ~ What if you had the power to amend choices you made in the past? Would you do it even if it changed everything?

Mercy Land has made some unexpected choices for a young woman in the 1930s. The sheltered daughter of a traveling preacher, she chooses to leave her rural community to move to nearby Bay City on the warm, gulf-waters of southern Alabama. There she finds a job at the local paper and spends seven years making herself indispensible to old Doc Philips, the publisher and editor. Then she gets a frantic call at dawn—it’s the biggest news story of her life, and she can’t print a word of it.

Doc has come into possession of a curious book that maps the lives of everyone in Bay City—decisions they’ve made in the past, and how those choices affect the future. Mercy and Doc are consumed by the mystery locked between the pages—Doc because he hopes to right a very old wrong, and Mercy because she wants to fulfill the book’s strange purpose. But when a mystery from Mercy’s past arrives by train, she begins to understand that she will have to make choices that will deeply affect everyone she loves—forever.

Promise of Yesterday by S. Dionne Moore ~ Marylu can’t bear to love again.

Marylu Biloxi is a true heroine in Greencastle, Pennsylvania, rescuing several people during the Battle of Gettysburg. But even heroes have broken hearts, and Marylu’s is shattered. So much so that she intends to never open it to love again.

Escaping the horrors of slavery, Chester Jones returns home after many years. After meeting the enigmatic Marylu, sparks fly as he gently pushes his way into her heart.

As love blossoms, secrets from Marylu’s past arise, causing her to question her newfound feelings. And then what about those rumors linking Chester to a murder. . .? Will Marylu allow God to heal her heart or will it be shattered again?

Winners will be announced on Saturday, 10/23/10.

  14. LOLOL! Sandra, you crack me up. Thanks so much for making me laugh.

    And thanks to all of you who stopped by today. I've been away from my computer (my parents are visiting) but I'm glad to know you were having fun without me! LOL!

    Good luck everyone!

  15. And Sandra, you're awesome, gal. Thanks for covering for me today, and posting the rest of your book blurb. Love you!!

  16. Wow! I agree with Elizabeth--thanks for adding that book blurb for Promise of Yesterday! I am definitely intrigued! :D


  17. Hey Molly,

    I finished The Miracle of Mercy Land earlier today. FABULOUS is an apt word! Beautiful writing, intriguing plot...VERY good. It was almost an allegory. Nothing like C.S. Lewis, but interesting nonetheless.

    Don't worry, I won't spoil it for you and give anything away, but even if you don't win it here, I'd highly recommend adding it to your reading list.
