A story of friendship: Roxanne Henke book giveaway

This marks my first ever giveaway in over 3 1/2 years of blogging. And I can’t wait to share with you. There are 7 ways for you to enter and I’m giving away 3 signed copies of After Anne by Roxanne Henke, which are gifts from the author herself.

When I moved to my husband’s hometown on the prairie, I told him I was sure I wouldn’t have any friends here. I was quite convinced there weren’t any women on the prairie like me or that could relate to me. I holed myself up into our tiny house where our living room was our dining room and my home office. Slowly I would walk around town (I was pregnant with Miss E) and I started smiling at people. Then people eventually started saying hello along with some whispers in the grocery store, “Oh that’s Nathan’s wife” and pointing at me ensued. A few people reached out right away though to meet me and were each my friend. I am forever indebted to these women for being my first true friends during a lonely, unsettling time for me. 

One of my first prairie friends was Roxanne Henke, a many times published Christian fiction author.
To me, she’s just Roxy, my friend who lives down the road from me, loves coffee as dark and rich as I do and likes to take brisk walks with me. She listens. She quietly mentors me. She brings structure to my chaos. I needed a mentor when I moved to the prairie and I’m blessed to have a friend and mentor in Roxy. 
After many successful books, Roxy has decided to take a break from her writing. It’s a new season and chapter in her life. She gave me a few signed copies of her first book, After Anne. I often give After Anne as a gift to friends. It’s a story of deep friendship rooted in faith that will move you and make you want to keep reading the rest of the Coming Home to Brewster series of Roxy’s as well as her other books. All of her books can be found at any retailer of books like Amazon and are available for Kindles. Each book gets raving reviews.
As a gift to my blogger friends via Roxy’s generosity, I will be giving away 3 copies of After Anne on August 10th, 2011. There are many ways you can enter. Use as few or as many as you would like to enter. Each method counts as one entry but you must leave a separate comment for each entry. If you enter all 7 times you will have left 7 comments letting me know on this blog post. You have 9 days to get all entered and ready to go. I can’t wait to share this book with three blogger friends as it is a slice of the prairie and friendship that you’ll be receiving through After Anne.
