Giveaway! Things I Want My Daughters To Know

UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed! Thank You!

In honor of the Book Giveaway Carnival hosted by Book Room Reviews, I decided to host a giveaway! This giveaway is for a paperback copy of Things I Want My Daughters To Know by Elizabeth Noble. I received this as part of Book Club Girl’s online interview with Elizabeth Noble. You can find the interview here.

Although this is my own copy, it is in pristine condition as I hate to crease spines or fold the pages! Here’s the blurb from Barnes & Noble:

“When Barbara realizes time is running out, she writes letters to her four daughters, aware that they’ll be facing the trials and triumphs of life without her at their side. But how can she leave them when they still have so much growing up to do?
Take Lisa, in her midthirties but incapable of making a commitment; or Jennifer, trapped in a stale marriage and buttoned up so tight she could burst. Twentysomething Amanda, the traveler, has always distanced herself from the rest of the family; and then there’s Hannah, a teenage girl on the verge of womanhood about to be parted from the mother she adores.
But by drawing on the wisdom in Barbara’s letters, the girls might just find a way to cope with their loss. And in coming to terms with their bereavement, can they also set themselves free to enjoy their lives with all the passion and love each deserves? .”

  1. I haven’t read any of Elizabeth Noble’s books, but I’d like to win this one because I’ve read several great reviews of it. milou2ster(at)gmail.com

  2. I have never read Elizabeth Noble, but this one appeals to me for several reasons. First, I am the mother of two daughters and I have Multiple Sclerosis, so I have often thought about what would happen to my girls if anything happened to me. Plus, I have three sisters and my mother is in her 70s now (still can’t believe that one!) and I often wonder what I would ever do without her. So I could really view this book from two different perspectives.MargayMargay1122 (at) aol (dot) com

  15. I’ve never read any of Elizabeth Noble’s book. This one sounds interesting. I’m always looking for ways to connect with my daughter when she was going through her terrible teen years-for her 19th birthday I gave her one present everyday for the 19 days before her birthday. I told her that this would be the last year she would be considered a teenager. She surprised me when she did something similar for her boyfriend.I guess she remembered 😀BevEmerryweatherbookblog@gmail.com
