I’ve talked before about the Chapter-a-week service, but this is a good time to mention it again.  If you’d like to “try” before you “buy” new novels, you need to sign up for Chapter-a-week!  You’ll find the signup button to the right on this web page, just below the cute weather pixie and the frapper map.  

After you sign up for this free service, you will receive sample excerpts from two great novels in your email box.  Learn what your favorite authors have coming hot off the press and meet new authors, too!  

Here are the CAW selections for this week: 


By Kim Vogel Sawyer

Published by Bethany House Publishers, March 2008

Orphaned in a tenement fire, three Irish-immigrant children are sent to Missouri to be adopted. Despite eight-year-old Maelle’s desperate attempts to keep her siblings together, each child is taken by a different family. Yet Maelle vows that she will never stop searching for her brother and sister…and that they will be together one day in the future.

Seventeen years later, Maelle is still searching. But the years have washed away her hope… and her memories. What are Mattie and Molly doing now? Where has life taken them? Will she ever see her brother and sister again?

Hideaway Home

A Hideaway Novel by Hannah Alexander

Has their love survived the ravages of war?      

        Throughout World War II, Second Lieutenant Red Meyer anticipated the day he could return to Hideaway, Missouri, and to his sweetheart, Bertie Moennig. His dreams are shattered, however, when he is wounded in the last stages of the war in Europe. Bertie is beautiful inside and out—she deserves a whole man. Red is determined to keep his distance until a tragedy on the home front brings the couple face to face for the first time in a year. Now a dangerous mystery threatens Bertie’s life. As they fight for survival in their tiny Ozark town, Red has to summon the faith and courage to protect the woman he has never stopped loving.

    I subscribed last week to Chapter A Week. What fun. . .

    I just finished the whole Hideaway Heart book. Love Hannah Alexander books. It was fun to see the early days of one of the well-known couples in Hideaway.

    Enjoy your weekend, Angela!

    uh. . . Since I read it, you’d think I could get the title right! LOL. That’s Hideaway HOME!

    I have found Chapter-a-week to be a great way to find new authors.
    As soon as I read a chapter that really grabs me I go to our library’s website and see if I can put a hold on it, and if it is an author who is new to me I see what else they have written.

    I just signed up. How very cool! Reading is my escape, and since I have been sick the past few days, I’ve read three novels. The Immortal, Somewhere (Karen Kingsbury), and Full Circle (Davis Bunn.) I’m always looking for new authors to try.
