Tour de Force by Elizabeth White & Giveaway

Beth has graciously agreed to give away an autographed copy of this book, so be sure to play along and leave a comment!
Isn't this cover beautiful! I purposefully didn't ask for this book for review. I'll buy it after I turn this next book in, but here's the blurb...doesn't it sound good. And keep reading for something fun they asked us "creative" types to try...

Tour de Force by Elizabeth White.

Gillian Kincade is a soloist with Ballet New York, a sought-after guest artist, and a committed Christian. Though she may be an anomaly in the world of dance, Gilly believes her devotion to God isn’t compromised by following her dreams. Then she meets Jacob Ferrar.

Jacob is the brilliant young artistic director of the Birmingham Ballet Theatre and a born-again Christian. When he offers Gillian the lead in his latest ballet she accepts, knowing it won’t necessarily further her career, but it will touch her soul.

On the chaotic road to opening night, Gilly and Jacob develop a deep professional respect for each other and begin to fall in love. Then their brilliant first performance is destroyed by a terrible accident, and suddenly both must face an uncertain future. Together, they dance the fine line between personal vision and God’s will, listening for the guidance of the Father’s heart. You can learn more about Elizabeth's books at http://elizabethwhite.net.


Okay, so here's the fun thing. They asked us to write an acrostic using the letters in the title. Um, I'm so not creative in that respect. So prepare to laugh as you read this! I'm calling this an ode to summer :-)

Tomatoes
Oversized-slushies
UVA rays
Rainbows
Delicious ice cream
Everybody dance now
Frolic in the sun
Outside all day
Roast marshmallows
Carefree days
Evaporates too quickly

Tada (envision bow here). Anyone want to play? Leave an acrostic for one of the words in the title, and I'll have my kids select a winner. The winner can have their choice from my stack of giveaway books. So leave your acrostics :-)
