Sponsor Spotlight & Giveaway: Be Still My Soul

Today I want to share with you some information about one of our sponsors for October - author Joanne Bischof, whose new book "Be Still My Soul" is coming out this month. Joanne lives in California and is a homeschooling mother, wife, and author of Heartfelt Fiction. "Be Still My Soul" is her first book in the Cadence of Grace series and is a historical romance set in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. This book has gotten a ton of positive feedback - just listen to this from Publishers Weekly: "Bischof kicks off her Cadence of Grace series with a tale of love blossoming in the most daunting circumstances. A gem by an author sure to draw fans." Here's a little bit more about the book:

"Be Still My Soul" by Joanne Bischof
Pretty Lonnie Sawyer is shy and innocent, used to fading into the background within her family, and among the creeks and hollows of the Appalachian hills. Though her family is poor and her father abusive, she clings to a quiet faith. But when handsome ladies’ man and bluegrass musician Gideon O'Riley steals a kiss, that one action seals her fate. Her father forces her into a hasty marriage with Gideon—a man she barely knows and does not love. Equally frustrated and confused by his new responsibilities, Gideon yearns for a fresh start, forcing Lonnie on an arduous journey away from her home in Rocky Knob. Her distant groom can’t seem to surrender his rage at the injustice of the forced matrimony or give Lonnie any claim in his life. What will it take for Gideon to give up his past, embrace Lonnie’s God, and discover a hope that can heal their two fractured hearts?

"Be Still My Soul" goes on sale tomorrow (October 2nd) and you can purchase it from Waterbrook Multnomah, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or these other fine retailers. Be sure to visit Joanne's website - http://www.joannebischof.com - to read her blog or to see an excerpt from the book.
