Ohio Brides has Landed!!!

Ohio Brides is arriving in people's mailboxes and on Wal-Mart's shelves. Yes, I jumped up and down when I saw it coverout on the shelf half a mile from my house! In honor of it's arrival, I'll give away two copies: one to someone who comments here on the blog and one to someone who comments on Facebook. if more than twenty people comment each place, I'll give away a total of four copies.

I love this cover! And the stories inside.

Three Ohio women seek God's promises for peace on the 1940's home front. Josie is a new bride struggling with dreams unfulfilled. Evelyn serves with the WAVES, but feels unappreciated. Kat becomes a professional softball player amidst criticism. Can each of them find love in such times of trial?

The video shows an engima machine...Evelyn worked on the project the broke the code :-)

I can't wait to read Ohio Brides! I've always been fascinated with the 1940's and I'm intrigued to get to know the characters in this book.

Ahhhh! My mother was a WAVE in 1943 when she married my dad. She was honorably discharged in 1944 when she got pregnant with my brother. The two of them lived in Cincinnati with my grandparents while my dad was in post-war occupied China. Can't wait to read how you dealt with this era, Cara!

Congratulations on the release of Ohio Brides, Cara! I want to read it, but Barbour doesn't seem to make their novellas available for Kindle yet. If you have any influence with Barbour, please let them know that they are missing many sales by only publishing them in trade paperbacks.

It is so much easier for me to read on the Kindle, so that's all I use now.

I am ecstatic to discover that "Ohio Brides" is available!!!!
Right now I am not that appreciative of living in Ohio because of the cold weather and bad storm forecast, but I think this book could take me away from it all for a while:)
Thanks for the giveaway!

I love the cover. I just want to meet the girl on it. Isn't she fun? And the stories in the collection are some of my favorites -- so far -- that I've written. Good luck, ya'll!

So excited Cara! I can't wait to read this one! Love the cover!

Linda said...

The video reminded me of watching a documentary of how we broke the enigma code. FASCINATING!!! I'm thinking it was done by Walter Cronkite, but not sure. My hubby loves that stuff, but didn't have anything to record it on at the time.

This should be a good read.
