Giveaway at Loraine Nunley's website: The Memory Weaver by Jane Kirkpatrick #BookGiveaway @lorainenunley

This week’s book giveaway is for the inspirational historical fiction book The Memory Weaver by Jane Kirkpatrick.

What is this book about?

Eliza Spalding Warren was just a child when she was taken hostage by the Cayuse Indians during a massacre in 1847. Now a mother of two, Eliza faces a new kind of dislocation; her impulsive husband wants to make a new start in another territory, which will mean leaving her beloved home and her mother’s grave — and returning to the land of her captivity.

Haunted by memories and hounded by struggle, Eliza longs to know how her mother dealt with the trauma of their ordeal. As she searches the pages of her mother’s diary, Eliza is stunned to find that her own recollections tell only part of the story.
