Autism Awareness Hop

When I first saw this hop I didn't have anything to contribute though I really wanted to be a part of it, then I read The Promises We Keep by Erin Healy.  In this book there is a boy/man with autism and through him I learned about some of the life of someone with autism and someone who is caretaker for one with autism.  This book is about so much more, but I was fascinated by the autism part of the book and the beautiful light that Ms. Healy paints this character in.

So that is what I am offering, my once read, almost brand new copy of The Promises We Keep by Erin Healy.  Open to the US/Canada, simply fill out my form below.  This giveaway is open April 11-14.  If you can't see the form below, you can find it here.

Summary -

Well I expected this to be a great reading week with the read-a-thon, but the truth is I got most of myr reading done early in the week and didn't do much  with the read-a-thon due to being at the ball field most of Saturday.  It was a great reading week and I have hopes to do well again this week in the midst of ball practice, museum night and filing my taxes :)

Best of the weekClose one between Night Road by Kristin Hannah and The Face of God by Bill Myers.
