Freebie Friday book giveaway: Anita Shreve's Rescue
Congratulations to Judy Dudley, the winner of last week's giveaway: "At Home" by Bill Bryson.
This week, one lucky commenter will win "Rescue," the latest novel from Anita Shreve. It gets high blurb-praise from Dennis Lehane ("pitch-perfect"), Richard Russo ("by turns harrowing and heartfelt") and Augusten Burroughs ("deeply moving").
Here's how Shreve herself describes it: "Rescue is about a Vermont EMT named Webster who has been raising his daughter alone since she was a toddler --- the age at which the mother, Sheila, left them. The girl, Rowan, now 17, is beginning to break away from her father in ways Webster finds hard to understand. As he tries to keep his daughter on an even keel, he wonders if he did the right thing when his marriage begins to unravel."
I have travel on my mind as I prepare for a trip to Brussels, so for a chance to win "Rescue," leave a comment about your favorite book about a foreign city or country -- one that really transports you. Bonne chance, mes amis!
