Winners and A Thousand Miles to Freedom Giveaway

The winners of the last giveaways are both out west. Ellie L. from Albuquerque, NM will receive Michael Sears' Long Way Down. And, Reine C. from Tucson, AZ won the copy of Larry D. Sweazy's See Also Murder. Congratulations!

This week, I have an unusual title to give away. I have two copies of a new release, A Thousand Miles to Freedom: My Escape from North Korea by Eunsun Kim. Here's the description from the publicist.

As a child Eunsun loved her country...despite her school field trips to public executions, daily self-criticism sessions, and the increasing gnaw of hunger as the country-wide famine escalated. By the time she was eleven years old, Eunsun's father and grandparents had died of starvation, and Eunsun was in danger of the same.

Her mother then decided to escape North Korea with Eunsun and her sister, not knowing that they were embarking on a journey that would take them nine long years to complete. Eunsun shares her remarkable story now, to give voice to the tens of millions of North Koreans still suffering in silence. 

Told with grace and courage, her memoir is a riveting exposé of North Korea's totalitarian regime and, ultimately, a testament to the strength and resilience of the human spirit.

If you'd like to win this memoir, email me at Lesa.Holstine@gmail.com. Your subject heading should read "Win A Thousand Miles to Freedom." Please include your name and mailing address. The contest will end Thursday, July 30 at 6 PM CT. Entries from the U.S. only please.

This book sound incredible and I will just have to read it. Sounds like a great book for our neighborhood book club too.

Thanks for the information, Lesa.
