Giveaway Wednesday: Swimming With Wings by Lee Libro


As always, FIRST on my agenda today will be to announce the winners of last week's Giveaway Wednesday: a signed copy to two lucky readers of Debbi Mack's hardboiled mystery, Identity Crisis.

In the past I've used a random generator site on the internet, but today I employed my own, less technical but far prettier random number generator: my daughter. :-) And the two winners she chose are . . .

(Drum rolllllllllllll)

YAY!!! CONGRATULATIONS! I have email addresses for both of you, so will contact you shortly to make arrangements for mailing. :-)

And now for this week's Giveaway - Monday I featured a chapter from Lee Libro's Swimming With Wings, and this week you will all have a chance to enter to win a copy of your very own.

About Swimming With Wings:

What do a 20th century light healer who can raise the dead, an eccentric, would-be dubutant teen and a wandering gypsy have in common? A story of human brotherhood released only through the colliding dogmas surrounding their shared tragedy from long ago.

Lark Jennison is a free thinker and imagines she has wings! Set in the 1970's in a small southern town laced with folk mysticism, faith healings and the evangelistic zeal of the era, Swimming with Wings is her coming of age story. Orphaned, seventeen-year-old Lark and her brother are the last generation of the illustrious Jennison lumber family, and her uncanny ability to read a person, along with her eccentric ways as a budding artist, shine a spotlight of scrutiny upon her. When she falls for Peter Roma, a river gypsy from Summerville, she finds in him an equal, but is soon disturbingly set on a collision course with his fanaticism.

The drowning accident that had killed their fathers remains a mystery, a harbinger of ill feelings between the Romas and the Jennisons. Is Peter Roma, a scammer, a real gypsy or Lark's personal savior? To protect her, Lark's older brother sends her to art school in Maine, the home state of their mother's family. Uninvited, Peter follows but eventually considers their relationship a danger to their souls. His grandfather had been a mystical light healer and heralded the rising tide of a new age; however, Peter's "being saved" interpretation of this leads him into a cult and a world of corruption. The question then becomes who will save who?

Here's what one Amazon customer reviewer had to say about Swimming With Wings:

"I read this book straight through without putting it down. The characters were so real and I could really relate to them. I felt like I was stepping right into their lives. The topic was close to my heart and I felt that the author was sensitive in her approach to the subject. This is a must read!"

I know - sounds great, doesn't it?

When you said you red this book straight through - that did it for me. If it's that consuming, I want to read it.
