Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop!

1 Jul

Thanks to Bookhounds and I Am A Reader, Not A Writer for hosting the Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop. Click here for all the participating bloggers.



I am giving away a copy of Jody Hedlund’s novel, Captured by Love, set during the War of 1812 when the United States was still fighting for its freedom from England. To enter to win, just leave me a comment. Good luck!

UnknownThe British Army has taken control of Michilimackinac Island and its fort, forcing the Americans to swear an oath of loyalty to the crown in order to retain their land. Pierre Durant is a fur trader who returns after being away from the island for years, only to find the family farm a shambles and those he cares about starving and at the mercy of British invaders. Torn between the adventurous life of fur trading and guilt over neglecting his defenseless mother, Pierre is drawn deeper into the fight against the British–and into a relationship with Angelique MacKenzie, a childhood friend who’s grown into a beautiful woman. She now finds herself trapped by the circumstances of war and poverty, and the cruelty of her guardian, Ebenezer Whiley. As tensions mount and the violence rages on, Pierre and Angelique must decide where their loyalties rest and how much they’ll risk for love.

    Having been born and lived the first years of my life in Michigan, I’d love to read this book by Jody Hedlund–Captured by Love. I still have relatives in Michigan and visited them this past fall. Thanks for offering it.

    I really like historical fiction, and this is an era I have not read a lot from.

    I’d like to read this if it’s a paperback/print copy. I don’t have an ereader so an ecopy wouldn’t work. Thank you 🙂
