Giveaway at Loraine Nunley's website: Elusive Hope by MaryLu Tyndall #BookGiveaway

This week’s book giveaway is for the inspirational historical fiction book Elusive Hope by MaryLu Tyndall.

Synopsis from the back of the book:

In a colony named New Hope, while their friends are seeking a Southern utopia. . . .

Hayden is seeking revenge. Relentlessly.

After years of all but selling his soul to track down his scoundrel of a father, Hayden Gale discovers his search must continue in South America, where his father is reported to be helping colonize Brazil. Hayden has nothing more to lose, certainly not a good reputation, and vows to keep pursuing–at any cost–the vile man who he believes killed his mother.

Magnolia is seeking a way out. Desperately.

She’s in the jungles of Brazil against her will, but what choice does Magnolia Scott have? Her father insisted on uprooting their family to escape the uncertainty of Southern life after the Civil War. But how will she survive without all she holds dear—wealthy suitors, beautiful clothes, summer balls, and slaves waiting on her every whim? She vows to find a way to get back home—and attaches herself to handsome Hayden Gale.

As they journey toward Rio de Janeiro, they both seek to use the other for their own purposes. Deceptively. Falling in love was never part of their plans. . . .

  1. I read all day! Once I get into a book, it’s hard to put it down! I occasionally stay up almost all night to finish a book, lol.

    1. Oh, I can so relate to that Karen. I just finished a book that had me staying up late because I just had to find out what happened. 🙂

    1. I think I’m like that too Jan. 🙂 I just pick up my latest read whenever I get some reading time available to me.

  2. The time has come.
    The time has come.
    The time is now.
    Just read.
    I don’t care when.

    I can read by day.
    I can read by night.
    Loraine D. Nunley, I can read
    Anytime, anywhere.
    I don’t care.

    1. Can you read in the rain?
      Can you read on a train?
      Can you read with a mouse?
      Can you read on a house?
      With a fox? In a box?
      Here or there?

  3. I usually read at night when everything’s fairly quiet, but I’m not picky about when I read.

  4. I like to read whenever it is quietest and I have nothing else going on. Usually that is at night.


    1. Welcome to my website Sylvia. I get my best reading done when its quiet, but I have to be careful about those wonderful books that make me stay up past my bedtime. 🙂

  5. My favorite time to read is ALL the time.

    If I don’t have a physical book in hand then I am listening to an audiobook. I do it while I drive, tend the farm, fold clothes, do dishes, and sit on the sidelines at soccer practice. We rarely watch tv. In fact, we don’t have cable.


    P.S. I started She Walks in Power this morning. 🙂

    1. Oh, I have heard lots of good things about She Walks in Power (that’s MaryLu’s latest for anyone who didn’t know). I love that books are available in so many formats to accommodate anyone’s schedule, don’t you Amanda? 🙂

  6. Evening! I may read earlier too but I ALWAYs read after my bath and I go to bed!

  7. I can read anywhere, anytime, while watching tv, in a car, in bed, at the table, outside. Wherever I can grab a few minutes.

    1. I get that Lucy. There are days when I wouldn’t read at all if I didn’t snatch a few moments here and there. 🙂

  8. My favorite time to read is during my lunch break! I read in the evenings, too, but there’s something about lunch break reading that allows me to destress and prepare for my afternoon.

  9. I enjoy reading whenever I get a chance. That’s usually in the late afternoon and evening.

  10. I’d love to say I read all day long, but that’s just not reality…lol! Things must get done and life lived. So,most of my reading is done at night before I turn out the light to go to sleep. There have been rare occasions where I’ve had a few extra hours to read during the day 🙂

    Thank you for the giveaway Loraine! I really enjoy MaryLu’s books!

  11. I do most of my reading before I go to bed at night. I do usually carry my Kindle with me and sometimes sneak in a little reading during the day when I have time.
