Daily Dose Holiday Blog Giveaway: Supernatural Christmas
December 2, 2009

Welcome to day four of our holiday blog giveaway! I hope you are enjoying these giveaways as much as I am in coordinating them. Today’s giveaway is an autographed copy of Rosemary Clement Moore’s The Splendor Falls I called this book the best read of 2009.

The Splendor Falls
Sylvie Davis is a ballerina who can’t dance. A broken leg ended her career, but Sylvie’s pain runs deeper. What broke her heart was her father’s death, and what’s breaking her spirit is her mother’s remarriage—a union that’s only driven an even deeper wedge into their already tenuous relationship.

Uprooting her from her Manhattan apartment and shipping her to Alabama is her mother’s solution for Sylvie’s unhappiness. Her father’s cousin is restoring a family home in a town rich with her family’s history. And that’s where things start to get shady. As it turns out, her family has a lot more history than Sylvie ever knew. More unnerving, though, are the two guys that she can’t stop thinking about. Shawn Maddox, the resident golden boy, seems to be perfect in every way. But Rhys—a handsome, mysterious foreign guest of her cousin’s—has a hold on her that she doesn’t quite understand.

Then she starts seeing things. Sylvie’s lost nearly everything—is she starting to lose her mind as well?

Gothic Gift Love
This is a fantastic gift for young adult fans of all ages. The beauty of this book is found in the rich writing and the colorful atmosphere. Like Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice, The Splendor Falls is easily a classic just waiting for a literature class.

    I would love to win this as a birthday gift to myself. I love books, and this one I fancy.

    I had wondered what this book was about, I had seen it listed on her website and kept forgetting to check back on it. I truly love and enjoy her Maggie Quinn series even though I way past the teen years!

    I'd love to win this for my mom, who ironically is the one that found me the Maggie Quinn series. She has had some major back problems and this book would be right up her alley to cheer her up and take her mind off the pain.

    I'd love to gift this to my best friend, Liz. She's a huge fan of YA, that's pretty much all she reads! And I think she would love this one. 🙂

    I would gift this to my sister. I recently got her to read "genre" via YA. AND she is know hooked. This would be right up her alley and she lives in Alabama to boot!
