But first, I'm giving away a copy, If you'd like to win it, post a comment on this blog with your name or some way to identify you -- not just "anonymous."

Then, make sure to check back on Monday, Feb. 7, when I'll randomly select a winner. Want to know more about the book? Check out the Observer's review.

This book could provide the method of introducing North Carolina to members of my reading group who haven't grown up with furniture factories, hosiery mills, Baptist churches, and secrets that we realize were always lurking in the shadows.

This theme rings very true in many families today. I would love to read this book because I can relate to it like a lot of others out there without any real biological family left.

Would like to give this new writer a read, especially since the setting is so close to home on so many different levels. Joe

Would love to win a copy of this book, too. I have started a read club with a few friends in my community. And I would love to read this book for our new group, its only three of us now, but I know in my heart it will grow. And reading this book is a great start.
