Win and Acceptance Day
I did win a book off the Debra Vogts website today. It is Wildflowers of Terezin by Robert Elmer. Here is the Product Description taken from Amazon: When nurse Hanne Abrahamsen impulsively shields Steffen Petersen from a nosy Gestapo agent, she’s convinced the Lutheran pastor is involved in the Danish Underground. Nothing could be further from the truth. But truth is hard to come by in the fall of 1943, when Copenhagen is placed under Martial Law and Denmark’s Jews—including Hanne—suddenly face deportation to the Nazi prison camp at Terezin, Czechoslovakia. Days darken and danger mounts. Steffen’s faith deepens as he takes greater risks to protect Hanne. But is either of them willing to pay the ultimate price for their love?
I also got notification from Patchwork Path that they will be using My Bought Lesson in an upcoming anthology. I have not seen any of this publisher’s copies or work, but have run across the name Patchwork Path several times this winter. I am anxious to see what develops. I submitted last August and should have heard by March. May is considerably later, but hey, any small or late confirmation can keep me going!
