Giveaway! Jantsen's Gift

Hello my wonderful and dear readers. I am proud to announce my very first giveaway here at Jenny loves to read. This giveaway is courtesy of Anna over at Hachette. She has graciously given me 5 copies of this wonderful book to giveaway. Contest rules are at the bottom of the post. Good Luck!

Jantsen's Gift: A True Story of Grief, Rescue, and Grace

Nine years ago, Pam Cope owned a cozy hair salon in the tiny town of Neosho, Missouri, and her life revolved around her son's baseball games, her daughter's dance lessons, and family trips to places like Disney World. She had never been out of the country, nor had she any desire to travel far from home. Then, on June 16th, 1999, her life changed forever with the death of her 15-year-old son from an undiagnosed heart ailment.

Needing to get as far away as possible from everything that reminded her of her loss, she accepted a friend's invitation to travel to Vietnam, and, from the moment she stepped off the plane, everything she had been feeling since her son's death began to shift. By the time she returned home, she had a new mission: to use her pain to change the world, one small step at a time, one child at a time. Today, she is the mother of two children adopted from Vietnam. More than that, she and her husband have created a foundation called "Touch A Life," dedicated to helping desperate children in countries as far-flung as Vietnam, Cambodia and Ghana.

Pam Cope's story is on one level a moving, personal account of loss and recovery, but on a deeper level, it offers inspiration to anyone who has ever suffered great personal tragedy or those of us who dream about making a difference in the world.

Deadline for entries is midnight Friday, April 24, 2009.

Contest Rules:

  1. Leave me a comment on this post with your email address. No email = no entry.

Again a big thank you to Anna from Hachette for this giveaway.

Good Luck!

This sounds very intersting and provacative. Though the subject matter seems very depressing, I am happy to hear she finds meaning in life after the worst thing happened to her that I can think of.

This sounds right up my alley. I'm hoping to travel to Cambodia and Vietnam after I finish my year in S. Korea.
