Back to School --- Time for a great giveaway!

Now that the wee ones are returning to school, many readers hope to find a bit of breathing time to settle down with a good book and enjoy the "piece of quiet".  Just in time for that quiet week coming up sooner than you think we have two copies of the newest Barbara Delinsky novel: "Escape" thanks to Liz at Doubleday/Random House.

Publishers Weekly states it perfectly,

"Delinsky nails it in her trademark latest, a captivating and moving story about a woman who's had enough of her life and wants a fresh start. . . . "

Emily Aulenbach is thirty, a lawyer working in Manhattan. She had once dreamed of representing victims of corporate abuse, but she spends her days talking on the phone with vic­tims of tainted bottled water. And it isn’t only work. It’s her sister, her friends, even her husband. She doesn’t connect to much in her life, period.

Emily leaves work early one day, packs her bag, and takes off. She heads north toward a New Hampshire town. During her college years, she spent a summer here. Painful as it is to return, she knows that if she is to right her life, she has to start here.

Sounds Great doesn't it, so let's get this one out there for a September read. Rules are the usual:
  • two copies available,
  • US mailing addresses only (no PO Boxes)
  • Deadline to enter : September 1st
To enter:
  • Leave me a comment  saying whether you've read anything else by Barbara Delinksy (if you haven't -you should!

  10. I have read one or two of Delinsky's books including The Vineyard but it's been a while. I always mean to read her books because I love the New England themes and settings but it's so hard to get to all the books I'd like to read!

    Thank you for hosting this giveaway!
