August 2013 'GFC Followers' Book Draw! (International)




I'm just back from an amazing vacation to Kusadasi in Turkey and am still in 'catch up' mode since returning home a few days ago! :-)

I took the photograph above in a fantastic ceramic centre that we visited during this trip. I'll share some more photographs from my trip as the week goes on.

Congratulations to Shamara who won the July 'GFC Followers' book draw! Sorry for my delay in announcing the winner of this particular draw.


August 2013 'GFC Followers' Book Draw! (International)

This free monthly book draw is specifically for the followers of my blog! To enter my book draw each month, you just have to be a GFC Follower of this blog so that you can leave a comment on the giveaway post which you will find by clicking on the August Giveaway Draw tab at the top of this web page. You will then be entered into that particular month's draw for a free book!

There will be a new draw each month and there is usually one winner from each monthly draw. Each entrant to a monthly draw will be allocated a sequential number.

These monthly book draws are open to my 'GFC Followers' Internationally!




This month I have one paper backed copy of, 'The Girl Under The Olive Tree' by Leah Fleming to give away!







Book Synopsis
May1941 and the island of Crete is invaded by paratroopers from the air. After a lengthy fight, thousands of British and Commonwealth soldiers are forced to take to the hills or become escaping PoWs, sheltered by the Cretan villagers. Sixty years later, Lois West and her young son, Alex, invite feisty Great Aunt Pen to a special eighty-fifth birthday celebration on Crete, knowing she has not been back there since the war. Penelope George - formerly Giorgidiou - is reluctant to go but is persuaded by the fact it is the 60th anniversary of the Battle. It is time for her to return and make the journey she never thought she'd dare to. On the outward voyage from Athens, she relives her experiences in the city from her early years as a trainee nurse to those last dark days stranded on the island, the last female foreigner. When word spreads of her visit, and old Cretan friends and family come to greet her, Lois and Alex are caught up in her epic pilgrimage and the journey which leads her to a reunion with the friend she thought she had lost forever - and the truth behind a secret buried deep in the past...

Good Luck Everyone!
