Giveaway My Mother's Wish by Jerry Camery-Hoggatt

I haven't read this b/c I gave it to my mom to read...she reviewed it here.
I really want to read it after reading her review! Hopefully, you do, too! I have a copy to give away!

About the Book: A grandfather's song turns a diner into hallowed ground, like a church. A contrary girl with a gypsy heart feels the tug of home. A mother, far away, confronts impossible expectations. And a truck driver named Jedidah keeps his foot on the gas to sweep you into an unforgettable story of belonging and grace.

Readers looking for a meaningful, powerful read on a winter's evening or with the family will love the rich 1960s nostalgia captured in the Midwest of Jedidiah's and Ellee's story; the peace found when family strife boils over, and the gentle reminders of the influence and effect every life has on another.

You can buy the book here.

Well you can tell how much I pay attention. I didn't know that Sally was your mom! I've been reading reviews at the Friendly Book Nook and here for quite a while, but hadn't ever gone and clicked on the "About Us" button at the Nook. This sounds like a good read!
