Bloggy Giveaway: Canteen Dreams

This contest is now closed. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and commented!


The folks over at Bloggy Giveaways have organized a fall blog giveaway. I love giving things away without an excuse. Give me an excuse, and I'm a sucker. In the spirit of fall and thankfulness, I'm giving away an autographed copy of Canteen Dreams. Leave a comment on this post this week to be entered in the drawing. I'll post the winner's name this weekend.

About the book:

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” —John 15:13

In the aftermath of Pearl Harbor, Audrey Stone wants to help in the war effort. But what’s a young schoolteacher from Nebraska to do? When her community starts a canteen at the train station, Audrey finds her place. She spends nearly every spare moment there, offering food and kindness to the soldiers passing through. Despite her busyness, Audrey does allow some time to get to know a handsome rancher.

Willard Johnson worries about his brother who joined the navy to get off the ranch and see the world. When Willard’s worst fear is confirmed, he feels he must avenge by enlisting himself. But will his budding relationship with Audrey weather the storms of war? Or will one of the many soldiers at the canteen steal her away from him?

Can two such determined people find their place in the war and with each other?

I only have one rule...entries must be from the United States only. Thanks!

And go here to see the long list of giveaways.
Enjoy!
