Cara 40s, my books 24 Comments

Ohio Brides is arriving in people’s mailboxes and on Wal-Mart’s shelves. Yes, I jumped up and down when I saw it coverout on the shelf half a mile from my house! In honor of it’s arrival, I’ll give away two copies: one to someone who comments here on the blog and one to someone who comments on Facebook. if more than twenty people comment each place, I’ll give away a total of four copies.

I love this cover! And the stories inside.

Three Ohio women seek God’s promises for peace on the 1940’s home front. Josie is a new bride struggling with dreams unfulfilled. Evelyn serves with the WAVES, but feels unappreciated. Kat becomes a professional softball player amidst criticism. Can each of them find love in such times of trial?

The video shows an engima machine…Evelyn worked on the project the broke the code 🙂

  1. I can’t wait to read this book either! How exciting to be cover out!! I still haven’t had the chance to order my copy yet from Amazon, so I guess I’ll enter here. 🙂 I’m excited for you and that cover is awesome!!

  2. Ahhhh! My mother was a WAVE in 1943 when she married my dad. She was honorably discharged in 1944 when she got pregnant with my brother. The two of them lived in Cincinnati with my grandparents while my dad was in post-war occupied China. Can’t wait to read how you dealt with this era, Cara!

  3. Congratulations on the release of Ohio Brides, Cara! I want to read it, but Barbour doesn’t seem to make their novellas available for Kindle yet. If you have any influence with Barbour, please let them know that they are missing many sales by only publishing them in trade paperbacks.

    It is so much easier for me to read on the Kindle, so that’s all I use now.

  4. I am ecstatic to discover that “Ohio Brides” is available!!!!
    Right now I am not that appreciative of living in Ohio because of the cold weather and bad storm forecast, but I think this book could take me away from it all for a while:)
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. I love the cover. I just want to meet the girl on it. Isn’t she fun? And the stories in the collection are some of my favorites — so far — that I’ve written. Good luck, ya’ll!

  7. The video reminded me of watching a documentary of how we broke the enigma code. FASCINATING!!! I’m thinking it was done by Walter Cronkite, but not sure. My hubby loves that stuff, but didn’t have anything to record it on at the time.

    This should be a good read.

  8. The cover is absolutely beautiful and the red colors are perfect for February & Valentines Day. Congratulations! It’s a definite must for me to read since I live only a 15 minute drive away from Ohio..I live in Indiana. Would love to win a copy.
