Cami’s Books: Book Giveaway – Counting the Cost by Liz Adair

I’m entering a Book Giveaway – Counting the Cost by Liz Adair

Set in Depression-era southwest, award-winning novel Counting the Cost is about Heck Benham, a handsome, hard-riding cowboy, who sees his life turned upside down when Mrs. Ruth Reynolds moves from back east into Heck’s homeland. Ruth and Heck challenge the social rules of provincial New Mexico as they fall in love. That love is challenged as she faces the reality of living as a cowboy’s wife and he finds he must choose between her and the life he loves. This riveting story of choices, consequences, and the cost of redemption rings true because it’s based on the lives of Liz Adair’s ancestors. In fact, the pictures on the cover are of the people whose lives are shadowed in the book.

Met an Author Today : New Book List in Progress

I just had the extreme pleasure of meeting author Liz Adair-she did a purchase through our store, and when she emailed me, added a link to her blogspot: LIZ SEZ .

Her books sound like just the right mix of romance and intrigue to get me back into reading again-maybe set my knitting needles and crochet hooks aside on a nice afternoon and spend time outdoors with Counting the Cost.

So, I looked up her books in Amazon, to find out she ran a bakery at one time.
My uncle owned a bakery in Lincoln, CA, back in the 40’s; Mom worked for him before joining the military and becoming a Rosie the Riveter or something of that nature~she spent time in NM and met my dad there. They got married in Las Cruces in 1948-

Then 9 years later, along I came!

Coincidentally, I worked as a baker for Marsh grocery in Indiana many years ago~did  not know about Mom’s working with her brother until one day when she sent me her vintage cake decorating set and told me of her Bakery days.

Pretty darn cool I’ve met 2 authors in as many weeks~ must sell, sell,  SELL to make money so I can work on my book list now!

It’s truly a small world~ Ok I’m done acting like a schoolgirl over this new-found knowledge and going down Memory Lane~
back to work, Sandra!
