Winner of It's Not about Him and another Book Giveaway!

And the winner is........ Carolyn W! Thanks, everyone for entering. I highly recommend the book or any book my Michelle Sutton.

And now introducing another book giveaway. Maggie Rose by Sharlene Maclaren!

1904 New York

Maggie Rose, the spunky, friendly, twenty-year-old middle daughter of Michigan resident Jacob Kane, feels compelled to leave her beloved hometown of Sandy Shores to pursue what she feels in her heart are God's plans for her life--in New York City.

Maggie Rose adjusts to her new life at Sheltering Arms Refuge, an orphanage that also transports homeless children to towns across the United States to match them with compatible families. Mot of the children have painful pasts that make Maggie aghast, but she marvels at their resilency. As she gets to know each child, her heart blossoms with new depths of love and compassion.

When a newspaper reporter comes to stay at the orphanage in order to gather research for an article, Maggie is struck by his handsome face--and concerned by his lack of faith. She can't deny their mutual affections, though. Will she win the struggle to maintain her focus on God and remain attuned to His guidance.
