Julie Klassen


GIVEAWAY


It's retro Saturday with a twist. Instead of reviewing one book, I thought it would be fun to highlight the retro work of one of my favourite authors. If you'd like to be in the draw, just leave a comment including the title you'd like to win. The choice is yours. How cool is that?

Klassen's Lady of Milkweed Manor was my first experience with Christian fiction and I've never looked back. I fell in love with her wonderful descriptive phrasing and her ability to transport me back to another time and place. Her characters always engage me and her plots keep me rabidly turning pages late into the night. I can't even name a favourite book, each one is sweet perfection in my eyes. So, I thought it was fitting to start my first 'retro work by a favourite author' Saturday with Julie Klassen. Leave a comment and the title of any of Julie Klassen's books published 2014 or earlier and you might just win that book.

GIVEAWAY OPPORTUNITY:

If you would like an opportunity to win a copy of one of Julie Klassen's books (published 2014 or before) leave a comment below or email me at kavluvstoreadATyahooDOTca. Don't forget to include the title of the book in your comment. If you post a comment and add your email address, please use AT and DOT instead of @ and . in the address to protect yourself from spammers. If you enter the draw via email please remember to put the title in the subject line so that it's easy for me to spot your entry. Draw will be held and winner announced on Sunday March 8 2015. Offer open to international readers. Good luck!
