I am thrilled to be working with author John Shors this month.
He has agreed to offer up 3 signed copies of his newest release -The Wishing Trees - for a sidebar group read in TNBBC in the month of December.
Here is the book description as found on John's website:
"Almost a year after the death of his wife, Kate, former high-tech executive Ian finds a letter that will change his life. It contains Kate’s final wish – a plea for him to take their ten-year-old daughter, Mattie, on a trip across Asia, through all the countries they had planned to visit to celebrate their fifteenth anniversary.But that's not all! He has also agreed to plant a Colorado Blue Spruce sapling in the mountains (through the Arbor Day Foundation) for every person who participates in the group read. So even if you do not win a copy of the novel, by participating in the group read and discussion on TNBBC, you are giving back to Mother Earth!
Eager to honor the wife and mother they loved, Ian and Mattie embark on an epic journey that retraces the early days of Ian’s relationship with Kate. Along the way, Ian and Mattie leave paper “wishes” in ancient trees as symbols of their connection to Kate and their dreams for the future. Through incredible landscapes and inspiring people, Ian and Mattie are greeted with miracles large and small. And as they celebrate what Kate meant to them, they begin to find their way back to each other, discovering that healing is possible and that love endures – lessons that Kate hoped to show them all along…"
This contest will remain open until November 1st.
