The Contest Continues

Fanfare please . . .
Today's winner is:
Cindi from IL
Congratulations Cindi!!!

Cindi will be receiving a copy of Jose Finds the King by Joan Stromberg and published by Ecce Homo Press (illustrious publisher of For the Love of Literature)

Today's giveaway is a copy of Book Three in the Glory of America series. Thomas Finds a Treasure: A St. John Neumann Story is also by Joan Stromberg and published by Ecce Homo Press. (Thank you Ecce Homo for donating these books!) This series teaches American history through the lives of the saints and through a fun, engaging story. It illustrates exactly the kind of books I promote in For the Love of Literature: faith-filled, interesting, and educational, all at the same time. The Glory of America series has an added benefit -- they're inexpensive at only $7.95 each.

From the publisher:

Thomas Hrodej's father, a tough Bohemian immigrant, helped build the Erie Canal. When Thomas is picked on by the town bullies, will he be as tough as his father? When they use the ultimate weapon...rumors and gossip, Thomas turns to the new, young Bohemian priest, Fr. Neumann, for help. What he finds is a treasure! It's 1836 Williamsville, New York, and the Erie Canal is opening the West. Catholics are persecuted, misunderstood, and, at times, even despised. Follow the Adventures of Thomas and Father John Neumann as they encounter bandits, thugs with guns, creatures in the forest, and the special gifts of their own faith, friends, and family. Unit study on the Erie Canal included.
Other titles in the Glory of America series include:
Kat Finds a Friend: A St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Story and The Orphans Find a Home: A St. Francis Xavier Cabrini Story. (It was after reading The Orphans Find a Home that my then-6-year-old daughter declared she wanted to be a missionary to China. Today, at 15-years old, she is still determined to go to China and is currently learning Mandarin.)
