I recently chose to be part of a “grab bag” blog tour; which means that Waterbrook Multnomah randomly chose two of their 8 new Value Fiction Summer Reads.  These books are two of a whole assortment of great full-length historical novels that only cost $5.99.  Now I think that is a great price for a fun, summer read.

I was sent the two below.  I am halfway through one and it is great!  So look for them in your local bookstore! You gotta love a great book for a low price:)

Under the Distant Sky (ISBN-13: 978-1-60142-245-3)

A Gathering of Finches (ISBN-13: 978-1-60142-247-7)

by Jane Kirkpatrick. A turn-of-the-century Oregon coastal couples’ life is seen through the eyes of the wife, her sister, and her Indian maid who discover reasons why money and possessions can’t buy happiness, forgiveness or relieve consequences of choices.
