January’s Free Book of the Month

Happy New Year! Here’s wishing everyone a 2012 as great as 2011 was! The Free Book of the Month Program is here again, and this month we’re offering Linda Scott DeRosier’s Songs of Life and Grace. Sign up using the form below, or clicking the link and we’ll send your FREE copy of this great book!

As a man named Life and a woman named Grace met, married, raised a family, and embarked on fifty-eight years of married life, they wrote the notes of a song that would resonate years after their passing. Linda Scott DeRosier tells the story of this unique pair, her parents, drawing from letters, family lore, interviews of relatives, and her own recollections. The result is Songs of Life and Grace, a stirring, honest tribute to Appalachian family life, a touching ode to the radiance and vitality her parents’ love of living gave to every person whose life they touched.

Linda Scott DeRosier, a native of eastern Kentucky, is professor of psychology at Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Montana. She is also the author of Creeker: A Woman’s Journey.

    Thank you in advance for the pleasure of another book. As a lover of books but limited capital, I really appreciate being able to get a “new” book. Thank you so much for offering it.

    I bought this book when it was first published, but it grew legs and walked out the door with my daughter. Linda is one of my favorite authors – and such a lovely and funny individual.
