GIVEAWAY: The Bird Sisters by Rebecca Rasmussen

When a bird flies into a window in Spring Green, Wisconsin, sisters Milly and Twiss get a visit. Twiss listens to the birds' heartbeats, assessing what she can fix and what she can't, while Milly listens to the heartaches of the people who've brought them. These spinster sisters have spent their lives nursing people and birds back to health.

But back in the summer of 1947, Milly and Twiss knew nothing about trying to mend what had been accidentally broken. Milly was known as a great beauty with emerald eyes and Twiss was a brazen wild child who never wore a dress or did what she was told. That was the summer their golf pro father got into an accident that cost him both his swing and his charm, and their mother, the daughter of a wealthy jeweler, finally admitted their hardscrabble lives wouldn't change. It was the summer their priest, Father Rice, announced that God didn't exist and ran off to Mexico, and a boy named Asa finally caught Milly's eye. And, most unforgettably, it was the summer their cousin Bett came down from a town called Deadwater and changed the course of their lives forever.

Rebecca Rasmussen's masterfully written debut novel is full of hope and beauty, heartbreak and sacrifice, love and the power of sisterhood, and offers wonderful surprises at every turn. [via GoodReads]


I'm so thrilled about this giveaway!!!

A few days ago I received a huge box at home and when I opened it, I found not one, not even five, but ten (yes, ten!) beautiful, shiny finished copies of Rebecca Rasmussen's The Bird Sisters (throws confetti and toots horn).  I was so excited that I instantly tweeted Rebecca just in case they reached me by error.  But nope, they're mine to giveaway.  So woo-woo, you guys are in luck!

Rules: All I ask for an entry into the giveaway is that you guys drop a quick hello and send some good luck vibes on her debut novel, to my dear friend, Rebecca.  You can tweet her or visit her blog at these links.

This contest is open internationally! Winners will be drawn Tuesday, April 12 - the day of the book's release.  

Luck, y'all!

I think this sounds like an interesting story with the 2 sisters and the animals. I used to try to save the birds that crashed into the windows when i was a kid.

For some reason I couldn't leave a message on her Twitter account. I did leave a message on her Facebook page (as Patricia Barraclough). I commented on her April 2 blog post as librarypat.
I have seen a couple of reviews/notices of this book and it sounds like something I would thoroughly enjoy. We have always been the ones in the neighborhood people brought injured or found animals to.

It's actually quite simple rift platinum (in theory)...Obama can veto rift Gold appropriation bills until the cows come home but he can't rift platinum force Congress to add anything to the rift Gold bills by vetoing them. What rift platinum Obama can do is force a government shut down like Clinton rift platinum did in the '90s rift Gold as a way to bring pressure rift platinum on the Republicans rift Gold to add money in. Then the media arm of the DNC (aka ABC, CBS, NBC, etc) go into rift platinum action a show all the horrible things that happen when people don't get rift Gold their government money.
