We have a very special giveaway today to get y'all out of your Monday doldrums. We are giving away a copy of Bridge of Scarlet Leaves by Kristina McMorris to celebrate it's release tomorrow!

Before we get to the part where you can enter, here's the blurb:
book cover
From the award-winning author of Letters from Home comes a poignant novel of love and courage, set against one of the most controversial episodes in American history: the aftermath of the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

Los Angeles, 1941. Violinist Maddie Kern's life seemed destined to unfold with the predictable elegance of a Bach concerto. Then she fell in love with Lane Moritomo. Her brother's best friend, Lane is the handsome, ambitious son of Japanese immigrants. Maddie was prepared for disapproval from their families, but when Pearl Harbor is bombed the day after she and Lane elope, the full force of their decision becomes apparent. In the eyes of a fearful nation, Lane is no longer just an outsider, but an enemy.

When her husband is interned at a war relocation camp, Maddie follows, sacrificing her Juilliard ambitions. Behind barbed wire, tension simmers and the line between patriot and traitor blurs. As Maddie strives for the hard-won acceptance of her new family, Lane risks everything to prove his allegiance to America, at tremendous cost.
Doesn't that sound fantastic? Cherry (my roommate and occasional guest review on this here blog LOVED it). As a bonus, the novel includes fantastic Asian-fusion recipes--some of which we are going to try making very soon!

To read an excerpt, reviews, the reading guide and more, stop by the Kristina's website. Bridge of Scarlet Leaves will be released at your favorite bookstore tomorrow! Look for Cherry's review of this novel next week.

I have one copy of Bridge of Scarlet Leaves to give away to one lucky reader! Please read the giveaway details and enter below. A big thank you to Kensington for sponsoring this giveaway.
