This is the final book in the Spanish Civil War series. And a thread through all three books is the missing gold. That will play a part in this blog tour.
Battles heat up... not only those being waged by the soldiers on both sides fighting for Spain, but in the hearts and minds of the men and women who must sacrifice more than their dreams in order to save the lives of their loved ones. In this meticulously researched novel, brave and idealistic Sophie, Philip, José, and Deion realize their only hope for freedom is escaping Spain's borders. By continuing the story of this band of volunteers during the Spanish Civil War, A Whisper of Freedom proves that courage and commitment don't always result in outward victory. But there are whispers of hope and freedom that resonate through even the darkest night.
Here are some questions we'll consider. I'll answer them first:
1. List three things you would do with a chest full of gold (assuming you got to keep it!)
First, I'd make a large donation to my church and another one to the mission program. I'd like to pay for other people to go on short-term mission trips. It will change their lives.
Second, I'd establish college funds for my grandchildren and great grandson.Third, I'd replace my 1994 car and buy us a house that perfectly meets our needs.
2. List three charities/missions/organizations you support (and why).
Gateway Church in Southlake, Texas. They have mission programs around the world.
David I. Booth Evangelistic Association. David and his wife Rita were church planters in many parts of Mexico for about 35 years before he went home to be with the Lord. His wife continues to support his work, but she also travels with an evangelistic team that goes to many parts of Latin America.
Hot Dogs & Hope. This is a ministry to the homeless people in Ft. Worth, Texas. My husband and I support them in a variety of ways. I've knitted warm hats and scarves for the homeless for many years.
3. List three ways you have volunteered your time/services.
I volunteer in the bookstore at our church.
I also serve on the altar ministry team.
I host a writing critique group in my home almost every week. I have for over 20 years, and I have a list of people who have become published or won contests from this group.
4. List three things you keep "hidden" when company comes over.
My life is mostly an open book, and so is my home. If there is a basket of clothes that I've folded setting out, I would put that away.
When my great grandson comes, I put up anything he could hurt himself on.
5. List the last three things you've lost.
The most important things I've lost are my baby sister, my real mother, my stepmother, and my father, but I'll see them all again when I join them in heaven.
6. List the last three things you've found.
Most important I found the man God created for me. We've been married almost 44 years.
I've discovered the destiny God planned for me, and I'm fulfilling it.
I've found a couple of real gold earrings, but they don't match.
When you leave a comment on the blog, answer these questions in your comment. Three brave "players" will be selected at random to win their own lost gold (Gourmet chocolate coins and all three books in the Chronicles of the Spanish Civil War series).
Doesn't this sound like fun?
