This month, I’m giving away three copies of The Winnowing Season. I’m reading the type set pages of The Winnowing Season (looking for any elusive typos before it goes to print), and I think readers are going to fall deeper in love with Rhoda, Jacob, and Samuel! I’ve already heard from a few professional reviewers who’ve loved it, and their comments have made me one happy writer!
I have something a little different for you today. Instead of our traditional family-favorite recipe post for the first Monday of the month, I’d like to share a different type of recipe with you, the kind that helps equip and guide teenagers through life’s difficult choices.
