Hoppy Easter Eggstravaganza Giveaway Hop!

16 Apr

Welcome to my stop on the Hoppy Easter Eggstravaganza Giveaway Hop! Thanks to I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Read Now Sleep Later for hosting. Lots of bloggers are giving away books and bookish stuff. To learn more, click HERE.





To celebrate, I am giving away a copy of Stephanie Landsem’s The Thief. To enter, just leave me a comment. The hop runs through April 24. Good luck!


689105A Roman centurion longing for peace and a Jewish woman hiding a deadly secret witness a miracle that transforms their lives and leads them to the foot of the cross.

Longinus is a Roman centurion haunted by death and failure. Desperate to escape the accursed Judean province, he accepts a wager. If he can catch the thieves harassing the marketplace before Passover, he’ll earn a transfer away from the troublemaking Jews.

Nissa is a Jewish woman with a sharp tongue and no hope of marriage. Only with the help of Mouse, the best thief in Jerusalem, can she keep her blind brother, Cedron, fed and a roof over their heads.

When a controversial teacher miraculously heals Cedron, Longinus longs to learn more about the mysterious healer. Instead, his journey leads him to Nissa, whose secret will determine the course of both their futures.

Unexpectedly caught up in the arrest, trial, and crucifixion of Jesus, they wonder who this teacher is who heals others but does nothing to save himself. Is the mercy he offers in his teachings real, or just another false promise? Can Nissa and Longinus overcome their pasts to find a future free of their shackles?

The Thief is an evocative story of two people trapped in their circumstances and the life-changing power of forgiveness and love.
