Giveaway: Against All Odds

7 Mar

I will be giving away a copy of John Milton Langdon’s historical coming-of-age novel, Against All Odds.  Leave a comment on this post to enter to win.  The winner will be chosen by Random Number Generator.    Giveaway will run through March  18 when I will post my review.  Good Luck!

Step back in time – it’s the Victorian era, when Great Britain is at the forefront of industrial development.  Based loosely on fact, author John Milton Langdon weaves a tale of romance and adventure on the high seas. Against All Odds describes the early years of an average man.  Although he is born into humble circumstances, he shows how a combination of perserverance and intelligence, aided by a little good fortune, can help any child overcome the disadvantages of lowly birth status and a poor education.  If you long for a sense of wonderment in life, read this first volume of a set of four and discover how Jason Smiley Stewart transforms from callow village boy to a ship’s officer in Volume 1 of Jason Smiley Stewart – My Life Story.
