Random Acts of Kindness

There is no better random act of kindness to book-lovers than sharing books. I have been looking forward to sharing this abundance from Bethany House...

I am a huge fan of "random"... but there are also moments to pause and consider:
If I hadn't found Anne Elisabeth Stengl exactly one year ago... if I wasn't such a huge fan of Kathy's blog... if Bethany House hadn't chosen Prism Book Tours... if I didn't have the awesomest tour participants on the planet... if authors didn't write such amazing books... 
I could go on and on!!  I really can't take any credit for this awesome giveaway, that's for sure. But it is my pleasure to pass on the great awesomeness to so many winners!!!

There are FIVE print copies of Prophet by RJ Larson for winners within the USA:

Prophet (Books of the Infinite #1)Prophet
by RJ Larson
Paperback, 352 pages
Published April 1st 2012 by Bethany House Publishers


Ela Roeh of Parne doesn't understand why her beloved Creator, the Infinite, wants her to become His prophet. She's undignified and bad-tempered, and at age seventeen she's much too young. In addition, no prophet of Parne has ever been a girl. Worst of all, as Parne's elders often warn, if she agrees to become the Infinite's prophet, Ela knows she will die young. 

Yet she can't imagine living without Him. Determined to hear the Infinite's voice, Ela accepts the sacred vinewood branch and is sent to bring the Infinite's word to a nation torn apart by war. There she meets a young ambassador determined to bring his own justice for his oppressed people. As they form an unlikely partnership, Ela battles how to balance the leading of her heart with the leading of the Infinite.

There are FIVE print copies of Promises To Keep by Ann Tatlock for winners in the USA:

Promises to Keep
Promises To Keep
by Ann Tatlock
Paperback, 348 pages
Published February 1st 2011 by Bethany House Publishers


Eleven-year-old Roz (Rosalind) Anthony and her family have just moved to Mills River, Illinois, to escape an abusive situation. Only days after settling into their new home, they are surprised to find the previous owner, Tillie Monroe, on their front porch reading the newspaper. Though her sons have sold the house and sent her to a facility for the aged, she is determined to die in the place she lived her life, and somehow manages to find her way "home" day after day. Feeling sympathy for the elderly woman, Roz's mother allows Tillie to move back in. 

Mara Nightingale becomes Roz's first friend in Mills River. In spite of their many differences, the girls discover they have something in common that binds them together--both are hiding secrets. So they make a promise--"cross my heart and hope to die"--never to tell anyone else. 

When danger stalks the Anthonys, Tillie exhibits unimaginable courage and selfless love in her determination to protect the family she has adopted as her own.
