Blogoversary Giveaway #5



Blogoversary Giveaway #5, My Son John by Kathi Macias, thanks to Sheaf House. A Winner will be announced October 18th.

My Son John

Liz Peterson's mother is brutally murdered-and then her son is arrested for the crime, devastating their family to the point that Liz wonders if any of them will be left standing when it's all over. Can God's love and grace reach even to the deepest agony of the soul and bring, if not a meeting of the minds, a meeting of the hearts-and healing to a family torn apart by murder and betrayal?

"My Son, John" has been on my wishlist for several weeks now. Probably not a comfortable read, but a moving one. Thanks for this giveaway, Margaret.

I think this book sounds very interesting because even though things like this really happen, I don't know anyone who has experienced anything similar and I have no idea how I would react in such a situation. It seems like a moving novel.

We read of situations like this very often. It is more common than one thinks. So the book promises to be an interesting read.

A son who kills his own mother? If God can forgive that well... sounds like a wonderful messge about the love God has for us and about the forgiveness He can show if only we ask. I would love this book!

The cover is inviting as well as the title. It reminds me of the Murder by Family by Whitaker.
