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.

1. It all depends on what our vacation is! Sometimes we camp on the shores of Lake Michigan, other times we travel to a fun place to visit relatives, other times to sight see in parks. We love it all!

With the exception of vacations to visit family, we vacation near water.  Lake Superior is our go to summer destination.

Thanks for the chance to win a gift card!

One of my favorite ways to spend a vacation is to go fishing with my family.  We have so much fun!  We are from North Dakota.  Our favorite fishing is Parshall Bay by Parshall, ND.

It depends on where I am going. If I stay on land it is with the understanding that I will hit the beach at some point. I love being by the water. It is calming, peaceful and powerful.

Land, I am definitely a land person!

I like dry land.  I get seasick.

1. Most of our vacation time is spent on land. 

3. II can' swim so I am limited to activities around water.

Thank you for your giveaway.

I mostly stay on the land when I go on vacation.  I'm more a mountain person than a water/beach person, probably because I grew up in a valley surrounded by mountains.  I do love mountain lakes, but they're usually pretty cold for swimming, so we just wade in the shallows a bit. 

I love vacationing on land, but love cruising

I;m not a water person, but do enjoy watching it--the movement of waves or a stream brings peace.

I love both water and land, but I had cherished all of my holidays spent near water. It's beauty and power always attracts me. 

1. No vacation since 1993, but water is my preference. 

2. Never been to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.

3. Always interested in everything on, under, and around the water.
