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.

  2. I am a follower of the blog. I am loving the cover! It looks so intriguing. Thanks for the chance. bekki1820cb at gmail

  3. Very compelling! I do have an interest in genealogy, but all of my immediate family is gone. It's hard to relive the loss. Also, I only got to meet my father twice in my life. I have very little information about his family.

  4. I want to do genealogy, I just don't seem to be able to make it a priority. Shame on me. Maybe this book will motivate me.

  5. I am a follower.

    I really enjoy geneology. My life as a child was so complicated and I have lost touch with most family. In doing some searching I have found many in my family that surprises me. I am a cousin to Jesse James. Isn't that wild!

  8. Jesse James? That is amazing. I'm sure fun tidbits like that make genealogy more fun.
    Destrella - to provide the link you just click on the address at the top of your internet page, hit copy and then paste it where you need. Thanks for spreading the word!

  9. I don't do genealogy for the reason that most people do. I want to know what happened in their time period. What sort of house they lived in and what they did every day. What they wore, where they went, and why they did some of the things they did.

  10. Just Tweeted, but don't know how to point to exact post??

  11. I haven't spent a lot of time actually doing geneology, but I have researched a lot of family stories. History fascinates me, and I especially love to learn about my ancestors's lives.

  12. I love geneology but like you, I lack the time.

  13. Thanks for the entries. I think the other thing I lack is patience, so sometimes genealogy frustrates me.

  14. Geanalogy is so tough for me because I really need to do it, but I hit so many roadblocks. All of my family is from Guatemala and there are such few resources. I don't think I can go any farther than I have.

  15. I love the seasoned women at church who wisely say, "There is a time and season for everything. And for mothers of young children, it is your time to raise them. After they are raised, it is your time to concentrate on genealogy." So, right now I'm basking in the season of raising children. :)

    Thanks, Cami!

  16. I love doing family History. I get to find out the amazing ansestors that i have. I also find out the not so amazing ones but they make me who i am. It is so exciting to learn ther stories.

  17. Intested in geneaology, but too tired after chasing kids all day to do anything about it.

  20. I'm right with you, Robyn and Heidi. But I have enjoyed lately teaching my boys about some of my ancestors, makes a fun family night (for me at least).
    I'm so sorry. That must be terribly frustrating. I pray something new opens up for you and your family soon.

  21. Would love to win this book. Please enter me. I am a follower. I have never researched genealogy. I think it would be fascinating to do so though.

  23. My first love is my family. 2nd is reading. 3rd is family history. All take up time and keep me busy. I love each one.

  24. I love every Liz Adair book I've read! This one look just as good an the others. Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy.

    I have been a Family History Consultant several times and have enjoyed it. I am a bit lazy about my own family because so many relatives are working on it, but have helped on my husband's line. What a joy to find someone you have been searching for!

  25. I like reading stories about my ansestors. Family History comes alive when you know more abt. them. I use to love doing family history a fews years ago. Now I'm busy and interested in other things.
    If I win this book it will go to my Mom, she's a member of Daughter Of Utah Pioneers.

  26. Hi,
    this book sounds so interesting.
    Please add me to the contest.
    thanks and blessings,
    Wanda Chamberlain

  27. Thank you for the chance to win-I am a follower! I wish I had taken the time to ask my dad so many questions about his family while he was alive. Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can do today! wrestlermom2 at yahoo dot com

  28. I enjoy reading books about geneology. I have always been intrigued about my ancestors: their names, where they lived, how many kids they had, etc.
