Today is the day! Alicia Roque Ruggieri’s book, “The Fragrance of Geraniums” releases to us blessed people! And she’s hosting a give-away in celebration of it – which I am so honoured to be sharing with you as well.
Below you will find the cover of the book, the description, and last but not the least the rafflecoptor where you can enter to win your very own copy of this lovely book. I can’t wait to receive my copy and begin reading!
This give-away runs from now (11/13) till 11/26 and is on several blogs as we celebrate this lovely release!
Told from multiple perspectives, this is a powerful story of three women – of the threads of mercy that connect them – and of heart-wrenching sorrows alchemized by the Heavenly Father’s overwhelming redeeming grace.
Rhode Island – 1934
Grace Picoletti has nothing going for her – but she’s determined to succeed in life, nonetheless. Born to severe destitution, she claws her way up from the pit of family shame and secrets. She avoids close friendships – even with the likable, persistent Paulie Giorgi…
Despite her own agonizing emotional pain, childless Emmeline Kinner reaches out to a young woman so far beneath her. She could never have known whom else God would set in her path through her friendship with Grace…
Long ago, Sarah Picoletti resigned herself to a loveless, abusive life – and she believes that her daughter Grace must inherit the same fate. Yet Sarah’s own soul cries out for the blessed peace and hope of which the radio minister speaks…
(Because I am either a bit unsure as to how to make the rafflecoptor show up besides just a link, or else it is the blog format, or the blog/computers fault, if you wish to enter, you will need to click the link to go enter. Sorry about that. But it is worth it, because the book looks and sounds fabulous!)
Enjoy! And don’t forget to stop by the author’s blog and Facebook to follow her:
