Welcome to Daughters of Boston Week!




Julie Lessman's books A Passion Most Pure and a Passion Redeemed have been some of the best reads of this year. I'm just dying to share my review of A Passion Redeemed with you, but I'm going to torture you with the wait until Wednesday. For now I'd like to welcome you to Daughters of Boston week!

We're having a celebration round here! Everyday there will be something fun related to the Daughters of Boston posted and each day will introduce you to new ways you can win! Win what?

Well, the grand prize...

  • A copy of A Passion Most Pure
  • A copy of A Passion Redeemed signed by Julie!
  • A 3.5 bag of Boston baked beans (this is a candy, fyi, if you didn't know!)
  • A $15 Starbucks gift card so you can lose yourself in a good book!


And two additional people will win copies of A Passion Redeemed!

Now, just in case you missed it the first time, here's my review of A Passion Most Pure. And here's the interview I did with Julie.

Okay, I know you are wondering how you can win the fabulous prizes, so here goes....
1) This week, each time you comment on a post labeled Daughters of Boston you will get one entry. These must be relevant comments.
2) Blog about this contest including a link back to this post and the cover of A Passion Redeemed and you will get 5 entries.
3) Read the posts this week...there will be additional ways to gain entries revealed!

Now, the grand prize is open to those with a United States mailing address only, but if you are in Canada and want to try for a copy of A Passion Redeemed, you are welcome to do so.

That's it! I have two more giveaways this week unrelated to this one so stay tuned! (Read: it's going to be a very busy blog week)

Krista said...

Okay, so you know that I already have a copy of A Passion Redeemed and I've read A Passion Most Pure, but I would LOVE to add it to my collection! That would probably be the best book I've read all year!
And now that I've just finished my first review book for this week (yes, it just came in the mail this afternoon) I can't WAIT to read it!!!

Julie Lessman is one of the most dynamic new authors in Christian fiction. I loved A Passion Most Pure and can hardly wait to read A Passion Redeemed and see how she gets Charity out of mischief. Julie's books are a must.

euphrony said...

Sounds like a series Mrs. E would like. I'll have to tell her about this.

Rebekah (the_littleminx) said...

Wow, what a fabulous giveaway. I haven't read any of these books, but I'm off to check out your review now.

Thanks!

I just stumbled across your site when I was looking up Julie Lessman. I am right smack dab in the middle of A Passion Most Pure. I am at work right now and I am wishing that I had brought my book to work. I can't wait to see what happens. I am not even finished and I know I will love the whole Daughters of Boston series. I can't wait to read the next one.

Cynthia said...

I have read all of Julie's books so far, and can't say enough about them. Her characters came to life and I felt I was right there with them in Boston and Ireland. I can't wait for book 3 and the new series to come out. Your contest to promote them is a great idea!

Ronnica said...

Cool...I especially like the idea of including Boston baked beans. Why they would name a candy such a weird name, I don't know, but they sure taste good!

Anita Yancey said...

These books sound like real gems. I would love to read them. Please enter me.

Pamela J said...

Torture is right... wait until Wednesday??? Well! I'm glad I FOUND this on Wednesday so I didn't have to do any waiting. I'm trying to get as many points as possible so I can be sure to win Julie's autographed second book: A Passion Redeemed! BUT, it would be glorious to win the grand prize: the first book in the series, A Passion Most Pure, the Boston baked beans, and the Starbucks gift card along with the first book I mentioned. YES! Please enter me for a point toward the prizes. Thanks SO MUCH! In case you need my email address: cepjwms at yahoo dot com

I've been hearing about these books lately and they sound really good. So please count me in because I would love to win them. I would also love to have those Boston Baked Beans! One of my childhood memories is going to the local feedstore and getting a handfull out of those quarter machines. They were my favorite.

Thanks!
