Thursday's Talk About the Book

Eve's DaughtersOkay, so every week I give away a book from my bookcases. I have quite a few. 
Right now I'm looking at several books I've read and enjoyed ... a little something for everyone.
I just finished the one on top, Eve's Daughters, by Lynn Austin. Lynn is by far one of my favorite novelists. If the woman wrote a grocery list, I'd read it. 
Do I recommend this book as your choice should you be the winner? Yes! Let me tell you a little about it:
From Christianbook.comOne bad decision can plague a family for generations. Emma Bauer realizes that now as she watches her granddaughter's marriage unravel. If she had only told the truth about her own troubled marriage, maybe she could have prevented her granddaughter's heartache. Is it too late to break the legacy of wrong choices and embrace God's forgiveness? 448 pages, softcover from Bethany.
My 2cents: I could not put this book down. I stayed up one night reading but was forced to put the book down when I just couldn't keep my eyes open another second. But, when I went "to sleep" I continued to dream the words. About an hour later, I woke, said, "Forget this!" got out of bed, grabbed the book, went into the family room with a cup of coffee, and read until about 4 in the morning. Book finished, I went back to bed and slept till 8. That's how good it is.
So, if you are the winner this week, you may want to check out Eve's Daughters or...

  1. This book sounds wonderful, Eva. Thanks for the opportunity to win it.

  2. I love a book that keeps me up all night. I confess, when my children were small I could manage to knock out a book occasionally during the day, planning naps just right....

    Does my name go in for the drawing?

  3. Sounds like a good book. I would love to be in the drawing.
