  • I hope you and your husand take the time to go back to Bora Bora in Tahiti soon! My husband has been catastrophically ill for over 11 years and it has taught me not to put off things we really want to do together. We always wanted to go back to Austin, Texas, where we had our honeymoon, but put it off. Now he is ill and we can’t go, so live your dreams while you can.

    Wow! Saving Hope sounds like such a great read! I would dearly love to win this one. Thank you and Shannon Vannatter for the opportunity.
