Stay A Little Longer by Dorothy Garlock: Book Feature and Giveaway


















I have five copies of this book to giveaway. Please leave a comment below telling me what you have a hard time pulling yourself away from. Be sure to leave your email so I can contact you if you are a winner. This contest is open to US and Canada only and no PO Box addresses. Winners will be chosen on April 29.


Summary:
Louise Watkins has her hands full. Her mother had been the town midwife, but when her daughter Alice died under her care, she refused to assist in a childbirth ever again. Since then Louise has assumed the work. She also takes care of Alice's six-year old, Charlotte, because the child's father was lost in World War I. But Louise's principal job is running the boardinghouse that is the family's main source of income. One day, Charlotte befriends a stranger ill with influenza, a man who has taken refuge in an old cabin in the woods nearby. Although badly scarred by wounds suffered in the War, he is strong and slowly recovers. When he gradually takes on odd jobs around the house, Louise accepts his help. She is drawn to him despite his disfigurement, and his voice is comforting, vaguely familiar...
