Book #Giveaway | Travel to the Northern Front During the Civil War

Friday, April 27, 2018

Hello, readers and friends. Today we're coming to the blog with another giveaway. 

The feature book today is one written by a blogging friend. A novel that takes us back in time to the 1800s during the tumultuous time that was the Civil War. Written by Meghan Gorecki, Meghan is a blogger who I "met" through a little webzine called Femnista. Back then, blogging was barely on my radar, and so I simply enjoyed getting to know everyone thought their book havens. But when I did begin blogging, Meghan was among the first people to support the blog and extend more encouragement than she realizes. 

She is part of the reason I say this community is so welcoming. 

Congrats Meghan on releasing this story into the world.

Her new novel, Amongst the Roses is the story of her heart, as she has shared over the years on her website. A novel she's been so happy and proud to release to the world. It released in April, and  much to my shame, I have not had the chance to read said book (my apologies to the author). There have been too many others on my TBR, and I underestimated my  This said, I wanted to introduce you all to this novel, so today, up for grabs in the giveaway is a Kindle copy of Meghan's historical novel. 

SYNOPSIS: The War Between the States shakes Margaret Bryant out of her comfortable upper-class life when her father enlists in the Army of the Potomac. Despite being safely ensconced above the Mason-Dixon Line in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, Margaret finds her strength tested by opposition from familiar faces and Confederate threats. Will she let a young man from a lesser station into her heart even as war rages ever nearer to the home front?

Restless Connor Doyle sees the war as a way to escape from his family’s farm and his identity as a poor Irishman’s son. His brother, Adam, torn between duty to country and his family, enlists alongside Connor. Adam dares to hope in a future with Margaret when he begins a courtship correspondence from the war front. The two brothers make a vow to protect one another at all costs, but when faced with death and destruction from all sides—will they be able to uphold it?

The three bloodiest days in America’s history bring these three together at Gettysburg and tragedy’s cruelty threatens to tear two hearts apart—and bring two unlikely allies together. - Goodreads
