If you haven’t already liked my Facebook page and followed me on Twitter, you should go do so right now. I’m thinking of hosting my first giveaway soon and I will be hosting it on Facebook and tweeting a link to it when the time comes!

I have a small stack of paperbacks that I am planning to giveaway, but I have been rather intimidated by the idea of hosting a giveaway of my own, which is why I keep putting it off. If you’ve hosted your own giveaway, what have you found to be the easiest and most organized way to do so?

Description

Number one New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury delivers an instant classic with this heartwarming Christmas story about a hundred-year flood, lost love, and the beauty of enduring friendships. Molly Allen lives alone in Portland, but she left her heart back in Tennessee with a man she walked away from five years ago. They had a rare sort of love she hasn’t found since.

Ryan Kelly lives in Nashville after a broken engagement and several years on the road touring with a country music duo. He can still hear Molly’s voice encouraging him to follow his dreams; Molly, whose memory stays with him. At least he can visit The Bridge—the oldest bookstore in historic downtown Franklin—and remember the hours he and Molly once spent there.

For thirty years, Charlie and Donna Barton have run The Bridge, providing the people of middle Tennessee with coffee, conversation, and shelves of good books—even through dismal book sales and the rise of digital books. Then in May, the hundred-year flood swept through Franklin and destroyed nearly every book in the store.

Now the bank is pulling the lease on The Bridge. Despondent and without answers, Charlie considers the unthinkable. Then tragedy strikes, and suddenly, everything changes. In the face of desperate brokenness and lost opportunities, could the miracle of a second chance actually unfold?

The Bridge is a love story set against the struggle of the American bookstore, a love story you will never forget.

Review

The Bridge is the first Karen Kingsbury book I have ever read, even though my grandmother and aunt have been telling me how amazing her stories are for YEARS. Well Mimi and Kellie, I agree. Karen Kingsbury’s stories surround you and make you feel as if you are standing in the room witnessing every scene for yourself.

Kingsbury’s characters are well developed and easy to relate to. When Molly was being stubborn and Ryan was giving up, I wanted to take them by the shoulders and shake some sense into them. When Charlie was crying and Donna was worrying, I wanted to hold their hands and comfort them.

The Bridge is a heart warming story that shows how even the small things can make a difference in someone’s life in ways you can’t even begin to imagine.
