Thank you to all who participated in the blog tour for Grace's new book! I know I had a lot of fun reading all the posts and I hope you did, too. If you missed any of them, I have direct links to each post at the end of this one. And now for the winners!
Did you know Gestern is the German word for Yesterday? I
didn't until I read the excerpt I've included in this post. J. Grace Pennington
has a new book out entitled, Gestern. I've read the others in this series
and it sounds like another intriguing one. There are some great giveaways and
guest posts going on, so be sure to read all about them.
About the Book
You never escape your past
Andi Lloyd is more comfortable than most with interstellar travel, but she's not prepared for the perils and peculiarities of a world she has all but forgotten—the planet Earth. As the Surveyor undergoes repairs, her brother August receives a message with news that will send both of them across the world to a place he never wanted to visit again.
Neither of them are prepared to be thrust into a world of political intrigue amid the tangled forests and crumbling ruins of Austria. They aren't prepared to encounter wild animals and endure cross-country hikes. And they definitely aren't prepared to face it all alone.
But despite the dangers they must press on into the unknown to find a way to save Andi's life, to decide the fate of Earth itself—and to rescue a lonely girl who just happens to be their little sister.
Today we have THREE books and an author interview with one of the authors. Three lovely authors got together to publish their books about Sleeping Beauty all on the same day. How fun is that? First up, we have Rachel Roden and her book Rosette Thornbriar. And an interview with her will be following the information about the book and herself. To see other posts about the books and to learn more about Kendra and Morgan's books, you can check out this page on Kendra's blog.
Okay, so I might just be a little too excited about this book. But really, Grace is one of very, very few sci-fi authors I actually like and her books are the only ones I really read. So when she comes out with a new one, I kind of get excited.
Today, she's revealing her GORGEOUS book cover. Seriously! Just look at it:
And she has a tantalizing description to go with it, too.

After duty as an ambulance driver in World War I, Ellie
Morgan returns to Chicago to take up her share of the work in her grandparents’
department store. Ellie doesn’t want to alienate her family or disappoint them,
but despite a six year effort to settle in, she feels increasingly trapped in
store routine. Meanwhile, her grandmother urges her to marry a local politician
and help him succeed in his chosen field. Ellie’s grandfather, however, wants
to see her happy and independent. “Go West, young woman, go west,” he advises
paraphrasing a popular quotation of the day. So with Granddad’s help, Ellie
secures a job on a ranch in Colorado and sets out to prove that she has the
necessary character to succeed at a third vocation.
When Aldon Leitzinger meets Ellie’s train in Clifton
Colorado, he introduces himself as the foreman of the ranch. But the more
people Ellie meets in the community, the more apparent it becomes that she is
in demand to fill a number of roles for which she is not prepared. Desperate to
prove herself, she settles in to please everyone, a task that puts her at risk
of failure in every attempt at finding a new and happier life.

Ever since she could talk, she’s had a fascination with words, always coming up with songs, poems, and stories. Now a homeschooled highschooler, she spends her spare time penning historical novels, several of which have been published.
Today, we have a special guest, Sarah Allerding. Her new book is coming out later this year. I'm looking forward to reading it soon! However, first we have a beautiful cover, designed by Perry Elisabeth Design, to reveal!
Isn't it pretty? Now, I suppose you probably wonder what the book is about.
Braden has one goal: knighthood.
Unfortunately, he lives on a horse farm in modern day
America with his uncle, his younger brother, and an aunt who absolutely hates
Against all odds, Braden and his brother, Jamie, stumble
across a pair of special swords that sweep them back into medieval times. They
land near a castle whose lord has a task for them.
His older son is lost somewhere in time, and only someone
who can control the Swords of Time can save him.
With the goal of knighthood suddenly in sight, Braden's not
sure he wants to leave, but he wishes to impress the lord. Can he protect his
brother, find the lost heir, and fulfill his dreams, or will the lord's younger
son ruin everything?
Sarah is a homeschool graduate who enjoys using her
imagination to write fiction. She is working on a degree in theology and hopes
to eventually work in the church. She also enjoys umpiring baseball, writing
devotions and Bible studies, reading fiction, and playing the guitar.
Of all the characters in my books, I think Ruth (Brookings) Carson is the one who is the most like me. She isn't a carbon copy of me, but she is closer than any other. Which is probably why I really like this particular novel which releases today. This novel continues Ruth's story from a different perspective; that of an orphan she and Micah take in. All the Way My Savior Leads is Henry's story and how Micah and Ruth helped him. Read on for more information and to enter the giveaway.

About the Book
And, behold, there was
a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came
and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was
like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:And for fear of
him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
No longer could I say I was lonely. But oh, how I wish I
could! Who could have done such a thing to the Creator of the world? Who had so
much hatred for Him?

He approaches the woman and speaks quietly
with her. “Woman, why weepest thou? Whom seekest thou?”
Keeping her head down, she says,
“Sir, if thou have born Him hence, tell me where thou has laid Him and I will
take Him away.”
The Creator’s Son looks at her for a
short time, then opens His mouth. “Mary.” The way He says it. It speaks of His
love for her troubles and of His compassion. He doesn’t scold her for weeping,
He gently and quietly says her name. “Mary.”
