Freedom To Read Giveaway Hop

28 Jun

To celebrate our nation’s founding, I am participating in I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Mundie Moms’ Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop.   There are a lot of bloggers giving away books and bookish stuff, so check them out HERE.

I am giving away a copy of Lynn Austin’s While We’re Far Apart, a novel set during WWII.  To enter, please leave a comment stating your favorite period in the United States’ history.  The hop runs until July 5th.  Good Luck!

While awaiting WWII’s end, 12-year-old Esther Shaffer blames God for all her losses—including her mom’s death and her father’s choice to join the army. Meanwhile, her Jewish landlord grieves the passing of his wife—only to be accused of burning down his synagogue. Together, will these Brooklyn neighbors discover God’s love—even when he’s silent?

    All eras in our history fascinate me, but it seems a lot of really,really good books have been written set in the Civil War, the Great Depression, and the WWII time periods.I am also interested in the late 1800s/early 1900s as so much was changing in industry, social concerns,and women’s roles.

    I like the 30’s because it was a time of economic struggle and war and America came out of it. There were many historical landmarks during those ten years between 1930-1040

    As a historian the 1960s are fascinating- there was so much happening! For pleasurable reading I’m a sucker for Colonial and WWII fiction.

    I love the pioneer days, like Little House on the Prairie and log cabins

  27. Janice July 4, 2012 at 10:45 pm #

    It is hard to narrow it down – as a kid I loved colonial and Western expansion. I then added Civil War and as I got older I enjoyed WWII. Not really any period I won’t read.

  28. Dana July 5, 2012 at 8:30 am #

    I would say Revolutionary War and the birth of the nation!

  29. Shelby July 5, 2012 at 4:46 pm #

    WW2. I’ve always had a fascination with that time period. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I agree with Dana I am a birth of the nation fan!

  31. Rebecca Wilson July 5, 2012 at 5:51 pm #

    Even though it was not a good time in our history the Great Depression era really is the most fascinating to me. I love history novels as well, so thanks for the giveaway!

    I like the Cival War area…

  33. Nicole July 5, 2012 at 8:28 pm #

    The early 20th is my favorite as a historian, there is just so much culture and life that goes with it.
