JUNE 21st

runs til end of month

BOOK BLURB: In two days, wealthy Chicagoan, Anna Hartwell, will wed a man she loathes. She would refuse this arranged marriage to Lyman Millard, but the Bible clearly says she is to honor her parents, and Anna would do most anything to please her father--even leaving her teaching job at a mission school and marrying a man she doesn't love. The Great Chicago Fire erupts, and Anna and her family escape with only the clothes on their backs and the wedding postponed. Father moves the family to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, where Anna reconnects with Rory Quinn, a handsome immigrant who worked at the mission school. Realizing she is in love with Rory, Anna prepares to break the marriage arrangement with Lyman until she learns a dark family secret that changes her life forever.

Q1 I haven't been on a vacation in a really long time. When I used to take vacations it was on the Washington Peninsula so by the water. But that was when i lived closer to water...lol Now I'm on dryyyyyy land again in Northern Utah.

1.  I like to vacation near water—ocean or lakes.  I think that scenery is peaceful and relaxing.  Would love to win the gift card.  Thank you.

I like being near water when on vacation. Can be anything from a pool to the ocean!

I’ve always said when I retired I wanted to live near the water whether the ocean, river, lake, creek or mud hole. My husband and I go traveling in our RV whenever we get the chance and I get to camp near the water in lots of places!

I’ve never been to Lake Geneva but would love to someday. We vacation near water and close to land, though the kids haven’t been on a cruise yet. 

When my family goes on vacation, we usually go near water. Our vacationing is usually camping in summer, and water is the only way to cool down. Plus, it’s fun! I haven’t been to Lake Geneva, but I’ve been living in Wisconsin for a couple months now and might make it out there later. 

Thank you you for the awesome giveaway!

I enjoy visits to water in many ways.

In the water,  I enjoy swimming,  snorkeling,

and tub rafting!  Also,   I really enjoy searching for


Thanks, Cindi

I am having difficulties getting a message to post. We love to vacation in the mountains. We just love the majesty and splendor of the mountains.

3. I love to swim! 

#3. I am a water person for sure. We used to go to Lake Michigan yearly, but family responsibilities has put an end to that. We do take day trips to Lake Huron now. At Lake Huron we swim and hunt for Petoskey stones. I also love to lie on the beach and listen to the waves, read my book and soak up the warmth of the sun, with sunscreen of course. :) Please enter me in the giveaway. Thank you.

We love to be near the water!  We raised our family living in the Finger Lakes region of NY so were blessed to enjoy every type of water sports.
