And the Winners are...
Marjorie, Karen, and Beverly!
Thank you ladies, for visiting my blog and participating in the book giveaway. I will get in touch so we can send out your copies of Sisters, Strangers, and Starting Over by Belinda Acosta.
I am also looking forward to reading Sisters, since I recently finished Damas, Dramas, and Ana Ruiz by the same author, and I must say, I really enjoyed it! A funny thing happened when I started to read Damas a few weeks ago. I received an invitation to attend the National Council of La Raza's Annual Conference in San Antonio, Texas which would take place July 10 to 13 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. I was very excited about the event.
My bags were packed for my early morning flight, and so I settled in to bed with my book. I started to read Chapter Eight, and guess where it was taking place? At the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center! The main character Ana and her daughter Bianca were at a quinceañera fair, getting some ideas for the young lady's special day. (A quinceañera is the latino equivalent of a sweet sixteen.)
¡Qué casualidad! What a coincidence! I was headed to a place in my book, while I was reading it!
