Winner of Surrender the Wind by Rita Gerlach is....
Phoebe! Thanks for entering, everyone! This is a fabulous book that you'll want to add to your To-Be-Read pile.!
On the personal front. We've had great weather here in Northern California. 80's in the day (sometimes it creeps in the 90's) and low 60's at night. The wide temperature swing is due to the lack of humidity in the air. I grew up in South Florida and the temperature rarely fluctuated from day to night. And it's a different kind of heat here without the humidity. It doesn't weigh down on you, it just seems to suck all the moisture out of your body! Anyway, it is a beautiful area and I thank God for allowing me to live in such a mild climate. Personally, however, I'd love to move back southeast closer to the Atlantic ocean. My husband and I are considering buying a condo for vacations in Florida someday.
I'm nearly done with The Raven Saint! I've been working furiously to polish it up to perfection this week and will turn it in Saturday. That's the last I'll see of it until I get the final galleys. Galleys are the final layout of the novel exactly how it will look when it is printed. At that point, I cannot change anything major, only minor things like a word here and there. I am very pleased with the story of Grace, and should you end up reading it, I hope you'll enjoy it too!
