Letters From Home by Kristina McMorris

I got my March 2011 (and my April 2011) issue of Woman's Day magazine today in the mail and on page 20 of the March issue it has a snippet about a new book titled Letters From Home by Kristina McMorris. I checked my library to see if they have it: They do, but it's in the cataloging department right now. Then I Googled it to see if I could read the first few pages online.

BOOK GIVEAWAY

Well the first thing I found was a blog that was giving away a free copy of the book from the author. I'm jumping up and down with my hand up in the air: I want it! I want it! Do you see me?  Please pick me! I want it! :)  Alyce is the blogger who is giving away a copy of the book from the author. Alyce's blog can be found at http://athomewithbooks.blogspot.com/2011/02/giveaway-letters-from-home-by-kristina.html.  Her entry deadline is 11:59 PM (Pacific) on Sunday, March 6th, and she will draw a winner on Monday, March 7th.  Go to her blog and do what she says to get your name in her drawing.  Good luck!

The plot sounds really good. It's based on love letters the author's grandfather, Morgan, wrote to her grandmother during WWII. It says the story opens with Morgan meeting reserved Liz and her two roommates, Julia and Betty. After Morgan goes overseas and begins writing to Betty, Liz--who cant get him off her mind--ghostwrites Betty's responses with her blessing. They soon worry about how Morgan will react when he learns the truth about the letters.

I cant wait to read this book to find out!

The snippet about the book also says to flip to the end for '40's-era recipes and cook them as you read to truely transport you to the women's world. I like to cook, too, so I would love to be a winner of this book!
