I am going to make this a easy giveaway.
I have two copies of the book,People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks to giveaway on both of my blogs.
You have one chance if you leave a comment on this blog. If you leave a comment on both blogs you have two chances. The contest starts tomorrow and will last till February 2nd, in honor of my b-day.
The books were sent to me courtesy from Julie Harbedian of FSBA Associates.
This is a wonderful book. Many people are comparing this to the Davinci code.
It is full of suspense and full of mystery. You won't want to put it down. You are not giving the book justice when you compare it to the Davinci Code.
To make it short and sweet the book is about a young Australian woman, she is asked to find out the mysteries of the book, called the Haggadah. As she does the research she finds different things in the book such as a feather, hair, blood and other things. The book goes back and forth in time. First to present day Bosnia then goes back to the 1400. One of the mysterious objects is in the book is explained. The chapter then is told how that mystery got in the book. Then it goes back again to present day. Where Hannah has her own problems. How the story connects to the others stories makes this book a wonderful read.
I thought the story was quite different then any book I read. I liked Geraldine Brooks unique style of writing.
I will tell more of the story when the book contest is over. But who ever wins the book will absolutely love it. You will appreciate it even more if you are Jewish.
But For Now Good Luck!!!
