If you know debut author Katie Ganshert at all, you know she’s a giver. You probably remember, yesterday I announced you, my lovely readers, selected (through comments, FB likes, Tweets, and FB comments) her Reach Out Story as your favorite for the month of July. Because of this, she won the July Reach Out gift-basket (which she’d also generously donated to).
In true Katie fashion, she’s chosen to “regift” the gift basket to one of you.
Judy Burgi, congrats! You’ve won a wonderful basket of books donated by generous authors. (Click here to see what all you won.) Happy reading, my friend!
A young architect at a prestigious Chicago firm, Bethany Quinn has built a life far removed from her trailer park teen years. Until an interruption from her estranged mother reveals that tragedy has struck in her hometown and a reluctant Bethany is called back to rural Iowa. Determined to pay her respects while avoiding any emotional entanglements, she vows not to stay long. But the unexpected inheritance of farmland and a startling turn of events in Chicago forces Bethany to come up with a new plan.
Handsome farmhand Evan Price has taken care of the Quinn farm for years. So when Bethany is left the land, he must fight her decisions to realize his dreams. But even as he disagrees with Bethany’s vision, Evan feels drawn to her and the pain she keeps so carefully locked away.
For Bethany, making peace with her past and the God of her childhood doesn’t seem like the path to freedom. Is letting go the only way to new life, love and a peace she’s not even sure exists?
