Win a Copy of Miralee Ferrell's "The Other Daughter!"

A couple weeks ago I featured Miralee Ferrell's debut novel called "The Other Daughter with an interview with Miralee. I had only received the book at the time and hadn't read it.

Well now I've read it and I must say this is a book you don't want to miss! Once I picked it up I couldn't put it down until I finished it two days later. Well, I did take time out to eat and sleep and work on my WIP, LOL. But every free moment I could read, I read.

It's hard to imagine what it would be like to have a 13-year-old girl show up on your doorstep with the news that your husband is her father, but that's what happens to Suzanne Carson in "The Other Daughter." As far as Suzanne knew she had been the only woman her husband, David, an on-fire Christian, had ever been with. Up to now a strong, independent person when it came to things of the Lord, Suzanne faces a lot of struggles with acceptance of this young girl. It seems that this turn of events in her life is forcing a wedge between her and the Lord deeper than there ever has been. At every turn she rationalizes her actions and feelings only to find another obstacle has reared up. Miralee traces the character and spiritual arcs of both David and Suzanne to a satisfying conclusion as they both have to deal with David's dalliance almost fifteen years earlier, as well as forgiveness.

I highly recommend this book and if you would like to win my copy, please leave a comment in the comment section and I'll throw your name into a hat. I will draw a name next Monday, December 3rd. Note: You must leave contact information in the comment so I can reach you if I draw your name. If I can't reach you, I'll have to draw another name!

Hi Pam, I'm SO tickled you enjoyed my debut novel. It was a fascinating experience writing it, especially since the concept for the story line is based on a true incident in our lives. The details of the book are not true, but we did have a similar incident happen with an 18 yr old girl. I hope whichever of your readers win, they'll enjoy it as much, and the rest will rush out and buy a copy of their own!! Smile! Miralee
