Have I got a treat for you! A wonderful book giveaway, Dancing On Broken Glass by Ka Hancock

The giveaway is over, just wanted to add my review now that I've finished reading it....

This book actually took my breath away. I feel renewed and inspired. It was a book that I wanted to keep reading and not put down, yet as I drew near the end, I wanted to savor every last page and not let it end. Ka did a wonderful job with setting, characters, story-line, the whole 9 yards. She draws you into the book, into their lives and you feel emotions and it touches you. You think you might know what's coming up, but it's not what you think exactly, and then there's so much more. It's an amazing book and a beautiful story, every bit of it.





I am lucky enough to be giving away 3 copies of a popular, new novel titled Dancing on Broken Glass by Ka Hancock. (Utah author)



Dancing on Broken Glass was recently released on 3/13/2012. (Gallery Books)

ISBN
1451637373 (ISBN13: 9781451637373)




"Hancock’s debut is an authentic tearjerker--an intimate and touching story that will remain in readers’ hearts." 









About the book:
An unvarnished portrait of a marriage that is both ordinary and extraordinary, Dancing on Broken Glass takes readers on an unforgettable journey of the heart.
Lucy Houston and Mickey Chandler probably shouldn’t have fallen in love, let alone gotten married. They’re both plagued with faulty genes—he has bipolar disorder; she, a ravaging family history of breast cancer. But when their paths cross on the night of Lucy’s twenty-first birthday, sparks fly, and there’s no denying their chemistry.
Cautious every step of the way, they are determined to make their relationship work—and they put their commitment in writing. Mickey will take his medication. Lucy won’t blame him for what is beyond his control. He promises honesty. She promises patience. Like any marriage, there are good days and bad days—and some very bad days. In dealing with their unique challenges, they make the heartbreaking decision not to have children. But when Lucy shows up for a routine physical just shy of their eleventh anniversary, she gets an impossible surprise that changes everything. Everything. Suddenly, all their rules are thrown out the window, and the two of them must redefine what love really is.

P.S. Not to brag or anything, but Ka is my sweet, dear aunt and is absolutely adorable. I have a signed copy of DOBG and will always treasure it. I'm on page 102 and loving it! Ka is awesome in so many ways and I'm so very proud and excited for her and her book. She has absolutely inspired me to pick up my pen and start writing again. (without knowing it)
