Making Waves winner...

The winner of Making Waves by Lorna Seilstad is...

Katie M.!

Congrats, Katie! If you'll send me your addy at, I'll mail that right out. Bless you!


  1. Congratulations, Katie!!! Looks like I'm gonna have to go order it from Amazon, LOL ;) Hope you enjoy the book!

    Laura, you're just the sweetest with all these giveaways :) Thank you for giving us a shot at such wonderful books!

    Blessings to you both!!
    Amanda Stanley

  2. Yay!! Thanks so much! Just sent you an email!!


  3. Amanda, Love your enthusiasm and support for these giveways! It's such a blessing to share good books and I'm so thankful that I can mail them quite inexpensively. I think book giving is an absolute ministry! Especially Christian fiction! And of course, we'll lump North & South in there, too, as I do remember Johnny asking his mother to pray:) Stay tuned as I hope to give away a copy of that wonderful movie AND the book soon.

  4. Katie,
    Bless you! I just boxed it up so it's good to go. You should see it next week:) Please visit again!

  5. Did you start the book yet, Laura? I'll be curious to hear what you think as you read although I think I may have read it in those hazy nursing hours so we'll see how much I remember.

  6. Congratulations, Katie! :D And Amanda, I really think you'll love this book! I have my review posted on Goodreads and Shelfari, and I'll be posting it on my blog on Sunday, if you want to read my thoughts on it. ;)

    Have a great Friday, everyone!


  7. Amber, I was so tickled when I stopped by your blog and saw that you were reading this:) You're a sweetheart for spreading the word about Lorna's wonderful writing. It's fun to make much ado about such a debut! Bless you!

  8. Julia, Oh, how I remember those hazy nursing days! I just rec'd the first copy of N&S yesterday:) But after ordering I realized I'd gotten the wrong version (there are several and not all are good ones). Some contain glaring typos and other problems. So I ordered a more expensive version with commentary and it's not here yet. But I am so anxious to start reading. I can already quote one beloved line that Rel quoted for me a few posts back and it makes my historical heart beat a little faster:)

    "...He could not forget the touch of her arms around his neck, impatiently felt as it had been at the time; but now the recollection of her clinging defense of him, seemed to thrill him through and through - to melt away every resolution, all power of self-control, as if it were wax before a fire."

    Oh my, to write like that!

  9. I love it. I must admit my favorite versions of the classics are the Penguin editions, I love footnotes ;)

  10. Congratulations Katie!! Happy Reading!!

    I do believe this one will be going on my Christmas list. Along with North and South. :D
