Blogoversary Giveaway Special Extra #3



Today's giveaway is for TWO books directly from the author autographed!! A River Calling and A Place in Time. Open to US only, winner will be chosen on October 18th.

A River Calling: A Christian Father and His Sons; A Canoe Adventure; A Spiritual Journey That Would Last a Lifetime


This from Glenn:

I wrote a nonfiction book for dads a few years ago and thought I was done writing but driving the roads of Colorado looking at the old homesteads and cabins, I was inspired to start writing a story about that period, a favorite era for me. The story centers around Romans 8:28 and how it might impact our lives in ways we don't always get to discover in this world. Somehow it turned into a time travel love story between a 17 yr old snowboarder from present day Denver and a 16 yr old Christian girl from 1850 traveling the Oregon Trail with her family. Emma, the heroine is a wonderful example and role model for teen girls of today and an encouragement to all of us to be faithful even when we don't understand what is going on and what God is up to. The women who have read it said they laughed and they cried, then wanted their daughters to read it. I dedicated it to my own daughter, Emma, to always be an inspiration. God bless! (from goodreads)

These books look so good! Please enter me! Thanks!

If I could pick any time period to live in it would be in the late 1800's. All the changes and inventions - I would love to have lived to see it.

Thanks for the great giveaway!

I would love to live during the times of Abraham Lincoln and the freeing of the slaves. Every man/woman is created EQUAL!

I love to read about the West being founded, but wouldn't want to have to live it. Too rough.

Hard one.
I love the American revolution period. Love the ladies dress and tea time and all that goes with it.

Also love the western expansion period. The trials and hardships that the people endured but made them stronger.

I love the American Old West of the mid to late 1800's. That period of time, in that place, calls to my heart. It's almost as though I lived in that world and was very happy. gcwhiskas at aol dot com

I would love to be caught in very early American history. I think it would be so fascinating to see what America looked like back then.

I would have to choose the early west I've always been fascinated with the time of cowboys, heading west on wagon trains, arriving to somewhere new and setting up a homestead. I'm not up to it all physically as I am now, but would have loved it when I was younger!

I would want to be caught in the 50's because I love everything about that time. The friendliness of the people, not being afraid to go anywhere at anytime, the clothes, the music, the cars. Everything!

I thnk if I had to be caught somewhere other than today, I would probably say the 70s. Or maybe post-war. Both seem like such interesting, influential times.

Ahh forgot my answer to the question!! Thank you for the reminder! If I could be caught anywhere in history it would definitely be during the Victorian Era. I love the clothing, architecture, and furnishings of that time in our history! Women were just starting to gain some of their independence in society and some of the most interesting advances in technology were being developed such as the automobile, telephone, and lightbulb! How cool would it be to experience those things in person at a place like say the Chicago World's Fair?

I'd love to be in the first decade of the 1900s. Why? I guess because I'm reading a cozy mystery series set in that time and am really enjoying it! LOL (Fremont Jones Mysteries by Dianne Day)

Renee G said...

I am happy living in the present, but think I could easily have adapted to anytime from 1940 on. I would have love to have lived in a more "Norman Rockwell" world.
