Welcome to the very last giveaway for my #MarchMadness extravaganza! I know #MarchMadness is actually about basketball, but my team was out in the first round (thanks to Middle Tennessee State on March 18, and a score of 90-81, but who’s keeping track?), so I made it what I wanted it to be. (That’s another way of saying I co-opted #MarchMadness this year.)
I’m thrilled to offer a copy of “Roots and Sky,” by Christie Purifoy, to three lucky readers this week. Christie is an exquisite writer with a soft heart. That’s not to say she’s a pushover or a wimp. She is strong and she is wise, and she welcomes you with softness. Her words wrap themselves around you and carry you off to some place lovely.
This book is the story of life in one particular house. A house called Maplehurst. It’s also the story of a year in seasons. And it is the story of finding a way to breathe again. Read it slowly. Keep it by your bed, or in your purse, or on the kitchen counter. It’s a companion for your journey and a light to help you see where it is you are headed, after all. From the book:
“For so much of my life I have sought eternity by keeping my arms wrapped tightly around solid things. Permanent things. Things known and understood. Things sure to last. These are the things I believed had eternal significance. But this first spring at Maplehurst is showing me just how much is left out when we equate eternal significance with permanence.”

You might want to escape to some lush green island where there are drinks with umbrellas and lawn chairs, but I’ve got the next, best thing. Each Thursday, during the month of March, I’ll be giving away books! Some days I’ll give away one book, and other days I’ll mix it up.
