November Book Club Selection

Congratulations to Nancy S. Connelly, winner of the quilted Civil War table runner and copy of Susan’s novel! We have notified Nancy via e-mail.

 

If you’re stopping by after reading Susan’s devotion with Proverbs 31 Ministries today, welcome! If you’re a regular, checking in to see what novel we’ve selected this month, welcome back! Either way we’re glad you’re here.

 

Three years ago I read my first Susan Meissner novel. It was a gripping story called The Shape of Mercy and I was a devoted fan by the time I turned the last page. She Reads has featured every one of Susan’s novels since. A Sound Among the Trees is her latest release and it is this month’s featured book club selection.

 

The setting for Susan’s novel is Holly Oak, a Southern plantation steeped in history and secrets. Keeping that southern atmosphere in mind, this month’s giveaway is this Civil War Farmhouse Table Runner and a copy of A Sound Among the Trees courtesy of Waterbrook Press. To toss your name in the hat leave a comment on this post:

 

This month's giveaway: a Civil War table runner

 

But fret not, even though we only have one main prize, two additional readers will each receive a copy of Susan’s novel. You can enter to win by signing up for our free monthly e-newsletter.

 

We will be discussing A Sound Among the Trees all month on our online discussion forum. If you don’t have local book club or if you’d like to interact with other readers would you consider joining? There is no charge and you can participate at your leisure. And because we’re all about encouraging book addiction here at She Reads, we’re giving away another prize to one reader who participates in this month’s discussion: fifteen novels published by Waterbrook Press, including all of Susan Meissner’s. (And yes, you can enter to win all three prizes, simply follow the entry directions for each one)

 

 

A House Shrouded In Time.

A Line Of Women With A Heritage Of Loss.

As a young bride, Susannah Page was rumored to be a Civil War spy for the North, a traitor to her Virginian roots. Her great-granddaughter Adelaide, the current matriarch of Holly Oak, doesn’t believe that Susannah’s ghost haunts the antebellum mansion looking for a pardon, but rather the house itself bears a grudge toward its tragic past.

 

When Marielle Bishop marries into the family and is transplanted from the arid west to her husband’s home, it isn’t long before she is led to believe that the house she just settled into brings misfortune to the women who live there.

 

With Adelaide’s richly peppered superstitions and deep family roots at stake, Marielle must sort out the truth about Susannah Page and Holly Oak–and make peace with the sacrifices she has made for love.

    I am always looking for new authors to read so now Im looking for Susans books.

  2. Stella Baker November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I am a reading teacher and an avid book lover. In recent years my life has been filled with the bustle of work, caring for my family of four, and trying to run a home. I have gotten away from one of the things I enjoy most, reading. I just discovered y our website and hope that it will bring me back into the world of books. I also hope that it will provide some good christian fellowship with fellow book lovers. Thank you for maintaining such a website!

  3. Christina Campbell November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    After reading the devotion on the Proverbs 31 site, my interest was definately peaked about this book! I can’t wait to read it! I love that this book blends history and mystery!

  4. Susan Boyd November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I just found you through Proverbs 31 Ministries. I’m looking forward to reading this book and joining the online book club. I’d also love to win the tablerunner!!!!

  5. Marsha November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Girls! This looks like an awesome read, great choice. Since Proverbs 31 has become near and dear to me, She Reads has also filled a void. I was just like many others and avid reader of just a few particular authors. She Reads has me exploring so many others. I look forward to reading my first Susan Meissner book. Blessings for a successful bookclub this November.

  6. Ann November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    This book sounds very interesting – would love the opportunity to read it!

  7. Leslie November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    A much needed word for my heart this morning … God dwells/tabernacles inside me and He is my home and goes w/ me everywhere I go. Very comforting. Thank you. The book sounds intriguing. I am always looking for a good quality fiction read. This one sounds like a winner. Thanks for sharing

  8. Sandra November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    So glad to have stumbled unto this website! Looking forward to reading along with this group!

  9. Cheryl November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I absolutely LOVED Susan’s devotional today about home! I love home and the feelings of warmth and security it provides me and my family. God is so good to have blessed me with a good, Chrisitian home. I am very thankful. I would just love to read this book! If her devotional is any indication as to how interesting this book will be, I can’t wait to read it. I’d love to win the quilt runner, too! I love primitive decorating and this would fit perfectly in my decor scheme! God bless you all with a great day today!! :)

  10. Christy McMakin November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I enjoy reading the devotions by Susan Meissner. The lifestyle of the women of the Civil War erais interesting to me and I am looking forward to reading this book.

  11. Jennifer November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    This really sounds like a very good book. I am going to find it and get reading. The devotion his morning hit home – I have spent alot of my life away from home since we have made three cross country moves in my life. God’s presence was the only consistent thing and sometimes you lean heavy on Him. I am thankful He is faithful no matter where we are.

  12. Dawn November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    A Sound Among the Trees sounds like a wonderful book! Thank you for this website; I visit Proverbs 31 Ministries often and have been here as well to see the book chosen. God bless

  13. Beth November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I’ve not read anything by Susan Meissner…..this book sounds interesting and I think I would enjoy the opportunity to read it.

  14. Ava November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    For those of us from the South, this sounds like a wonderful book about our history. Just reading about it reminds me of my grandmother and the words and actions that she handed down to all of us grandchildren. Can’t wait to read the book.

  15. LRF November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Love to read & would love to read this novel! I read your devotion today & left a comment there as it was exactly what I needed to read today! Thank you for this fabulous giveaway.

    I am already signed up for the e news letter so I don’t know if that counts as my entry for the novel or not.

    Thanks!

  16. Rhonda Cooper November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Can’t wait to cozy up with this new read!

  17. Amy November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    What a beautiful runner! I love antique-y things like that. :-)

  18. Marilyn Goin November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I would love to read this book and also would love to win!

  19. Lauren November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Thank you for the great devotional this morning!

  20. Tracey November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I am looking forward to reading this. Growing up in Georgia this will be like going home.

  21. Helen November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Wonderful devotion. Great looking book.

  22. Sherri November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I so enjoyed the devotional today. I was reminded of why we love home so much and the analogy of our indwelling Christ who is ever present with us in our earthsuit, this body in which we dwell. Even in my last 50s, it is a rare thing that on every holiday and every time there is a long weekend, I want to make the treck to my mom’s house because it still is “home” though my husband and I have been married for 32 years and have had our own home for all of those years. A great reminder today of the tug at our heartstrings! Thank you so much! The book sounds great and can’t wait to read it.

  23. Patty Hall November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I have to admit I have not read any of Susan Meissners books. But I will definitly be looking for them. Would be nice to win this copy and the table runner! That is gorgoues!
    I am so glad I have found this website. Thank you

    This is my first visit here after reading Proverbs 31. I’m excited to discover some great fiction since I’m always on the look-out for a great book. Thanks!

  25. Debbie Sutphin November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I just discovered the “She Reads’ website and I’ve subscribed to the monthly newsletter. I’m looking forward to the monthly selections. I’m definitely putting this book on my Nook!

  26. Heather Metzger Ablondi November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Sounds like an awesome book. That table runner is beautiful and would look great in my dining room. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  27. Eloise Wall November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Interesting devotional, if we could only remember our heart is God dwelling place and
    Heaven is our eternal home. Looking forward to reading your new book.

  28. LindaAnn November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Thanks for this opportunity to win one of Susan Meissners books. I will definitely be looking for her books. Sounds good.

  29. Louise Collie November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Sounds like a great book and I’m excited to read it!!!

  30. Angela Keller November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    We moved 2 months ago, six hours from what I’ve called “home” for 41 years. It has been hard for me to be so far from family and friends and all that is familiar, so I have really been leaning on God and so thankful that He is wherever I am. The Proverbs 31 devotional today speaks right to where I am. I homeschool my 3 children and read a lot in preparation and teaching, so I don’t have as much time to read for pleasure as I used to, but Susan’s books sound like something I would enjoy!

  31. Joni GL November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Looking forward to this book. And the prize is fantastic! Thank you!

  32. Nancy Millar November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I’ve only recently found She Reads but I love it! This book sounds like one I would really enjoy! I’d love to win it AND the beautiful table runner! I’m already on the mailing list for the newsletter so I’m hoping that, by leaving my comment, I can be entered in the drawing for the prize. I also enjoyed your devotional this morning! Thanks for sharing it!

  33. Kathy November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Would love to be considered for the give-away. I have Susan’s first book waiting in my tbr pile and this posting is just the encouragement I need to start it next (after I finish the two I’m on). I so enjoy the writings on this blog too, thank you for what you all do to make this happen. Blessings!

  34. Laura Young November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Last night I enjoyed dinner with my parents and two of my sons. My parents recalled their experiences of being children during World War II. I later told told my sons to remember the stories as part of history. Victory gardens, rationing and air raid drills were a part of life for my parents not just facts from books.

    Historical settings always helps us to appreciate the personal stories that occured during difficult times in our country’s past. It sounds like a great book to read sitting next to the fireplace while drinking hot apple cider. I’d have a tea party with friends to use the beautiful table runner and serve carmel cake. Delish!

  35. Carole November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    So excited to find this web-site and learn about a new author! And what a neat giveaway!

  36. Lynn November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I am looking forward to reading Susan’s newest book. I love anything set in the civil war erea. Headed to the bookstore today!

  37. Terri Townsend November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I would like to enter this give away. I have not read any of her books yet but want to read this new one. Thanks!

  38. Judith Marcy November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Sounds like a book I’d like to read. Thank you for introducing it to me.

  39. Lee Ann Boyd November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I so needed the encouragement you shared on Proverbs 31 today. Thank you for sharing your heart and God’s grace. I am looking forward to reading your new book, it seems to be right where I am. I am looking forward to experiencing more grace through your faithfulness to share your gift. Thank you for considering me in your give away. Blessings to you.

  41. Barbara November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Today’s Proverbs 31 devotional by Susan Meissner touched my heart so I followed the link to check out this book. I love novels which transport readers back in history and especially into the lives of those who have gone before us. I’m really looking forward to reading this one.
    Joyfully His!

  42. Bethany November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I’m excited to join in this month for the first time! Looking forward to reading this book!

  43. Elaina Shannon November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Was looking for a new book and am excited to read this and maybe the others by this author!

  44. Melissa Walters November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    After reading the Proverbs 31 devotion today, I was excited to see the opportunity offered for a Christian fiction book. Reading is my passion and I love to read things that are wholesome. Looking forward to reading this book. Ordering for my Kindle today!

  45. Susan Meissner November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Thanks so much for all your kind comments about the devotional this morning!

  46. Connie R. November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Would love to win that beautiful runner, but would also enjoy reading Susan’s book. I just can’t afford to BUY all of the wonderful books there are out there!!!!

  47. Terri Nichols November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Thank you for the information on this author. She is new to me, and I look forward to discovering the many good books she’s written!

  48. LeAnn November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I look forward to reading Susan’s books. She sounds like an author I would enjoy!

  49. Heather November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I look forward to reading this!

  50. Maryann November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Thanks for the great devotional this morning. I’ve never been to this site, but was inspired to check it out this morning. I was touched by your son wanting to revisit his childhood home. I grew up in a home that was not often ‘happy’, yet when I pass the home, I still get wistful. The most impactful part of your devo was when you said, “Home is where our hearts are at rest. And our hearts can always be at rest in Him.” Thanks for that reminder. Even when life is turbulent, we can find rest in Him.

  51. Rae Jean Armstrong November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I love novels that have history and love the civil war history. Looking foward to reading a good book especially since winter is coming and I’ll need a good book to curl up with when it snows!!

  52. Annette November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Loved the devotion and look forward to reading Susan’s book. Thanks for leading me to your site! Look forward to newsletter! The civil war runner is beautiful!

  53. Lauren November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    This sounds like a book that would be right up my ally. I look forward to locating and reading this book.
    Ps. The table runner is beautiful!

  54. Linda Doughty November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I love historical novels. I look forward to reading this. I, too, just recently revisited my childhood home as well as my grandparent’s home which was so special. So many wonderful memories! We even took my mother’s picture on her birthday standing next to the house where she was born 85 years ago. What a treat.

  55. Michelle Taylor November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I am an avid reader and it’s the one place I go in my mind for peace and quiet. (I’m the mom of 7, 5 of which I homeschool.) I have had such a love of books since I was real young. I was caught reading under my covers with a flashlight since I was supposed to be asleep. I loved being transported to those times and places and I still do. Most of the time when I read I feel like I’m right there. The Library has become my favorite place to be. :) Please enter me into the contest for this book. I can’t wait to be able to read it. The table runner would just be an added bonus. :) Thanks again. God Bless.

  56. Sherry D November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I love it! I think you just introduced me to a new author that I know I am going to just love!

  57. Diana November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Thank you for the words I needed just now.

  58. Laura November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I’ve never heard of Susan Meissner or read one of her books yet. I look forward to looking into what she has written and hopefully winning a copy of this book to get started. :)

  59. Cheryl Barker November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I would love a chance to win this book of Susan’s. Thanks for the opportunity!

  60. Marielle November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Yep, my name is Marielle. :-) So you can imagine how surprised I was when reading this devotional and discovering that the major character of this new book and I share a name in common. Especially since it isn’t a common name. I wonder how Susan came to pick it out of all the possible names available? I’m French Canadian, born and raised around Montreal, moved to the States when I was 12 and learned to speak English. I married into a Southern family (didn’t know what grits were before, nor that we “wrench” the dishes”) and my husband is a big history buff, so this will make good reading for me to discuss with him. This devotional also struck a cord with me in that we lost my Mom this past April and my Dad is moving out of our family home of the past 40 years this month. I have moved quite often during my lifetime and this house provided a harbor of sorts, a safe haven to return to, and a place to create many cherished memories. We’re taking the memories with us, but it’s still hard to pack and leave “home” behind. How comforting to know that no matter where we live or travel, that for Christ-followers Heaven is our real home and we are just passing through as sojourners. God desires to be worshiped by all the peoples He has created and there are so many who long for Him in their hearts but haven’t recognized that longing yet and need to be invited into His family, to become part of His great worship choir. Imagine what that choir must sound like when we all worship “before the Lamb” Rev. 7:9-10. Let’s invite as many people near and far “home” to the Savior!
    All for HIS glory, Marielle

  61. Chris November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I can’t wait to get this book. I love reading historical novels. I love making tablerunners, and it would be such an honor to display this runner on my table!!!

  62. deepetterson November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Her devotion today spoke to me because we have just moved and I am having trouble settling into our new home. I am looking forward to reading this book.

  63. Kirsten November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    beautiful! love the era and love the legacy of the quilts!

  64. Debra Kelley November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I look forward to reading all of Susan’s books, I was intrigued by her analogy of the tabernacle in today’s Proverbs 31 email devotion.

    May God continue to bless your creative writing talent and your family.

    Debra

  65. Lisa November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I was visiting my mom yesterday at my childhood home and this morning I couldn’t help but feel homesick for my dad who passed away six years ago this month. When I read the devotion I felt God reaching down to comfort me with Susan’s words. I’ve always dreamed of being a writer and would love the opportunity to read a good book – especially a historical one set in the south. Thank you!…

  66. Louella November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Just discovered Susan today on Proverbs 31 ministries and cannot wait to read her new book. Love christian fiction and civil war studies and am so excited when I find a new author. Cannot wait to get this book along with her previous ones.

  67. Candace November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    This book looks like it will be especially good since I like the Civil War era.

  68. Linda Pesick November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I have never read any of Susan’s books but enjoyed reading today’s devotional. I love Christian novels set in the Civil War era. This one sounds like something I would really enjoy reading. Can not wait to get my own copy.

  69. Keri November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I love Susan Meissner’s books and I’m looking forward to reading this one! The table runner is beautiful!

  70. Leslie Shelley November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I loved the devotional and would really love to read the book….. I am steeped in the traditions of the South and love to read really good novels that are centered here. Thanks so much for seeking out these great folks and spreading the word to us all.

  71. Anna November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Today’s devotional made me cry. I don’t know why. I would love to read this book to inspire me since I want to start writing a novel as part of the National Novel Writing month which starts today.

    Blessings and thanks,

    Anna

  72. Donna November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    It is so freshing to have books available that inspire and challenge us to look deeper. Thank you Lord for Susan and her ministry! I am looking forward to reading her book!

  73. Krista November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I just read the devotional on Proverbs 31 ministries and was very excited to go to She Reads web site. I look forward to reading the book and the 1st chapter that is available for download- my daughter is an avid reader and I’m excited to share this with her.

  74. Susan Meissner November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    WOW! A Marielle among us! I have never met one, but I love the name. I am so glad to meet you here, dear Marielle.
    Thanks to all of your for your kind words!

  75. Suzanne Fritsche November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Can’t wait to get my hands on this one. I love fictional history and look forward to hunkering down under a blanky on the couch to enjoy this one. Great devotional today from Susan Meissner; it really touched home. Lost my mother just two months ago and packing up her things from her apartment that was my “home” away from home (live in Houston) was very hard. Her thoughts on home really touched me.

  76. Marge November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I have always loved to read and love to discover authors that are new to me. Since I got a Nook, I’ve read a larger variety of books than ever before. I still can’t give up on “real” books and I’m excited to hear about this novel.

  77. Michelle November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I would love to read the novel – I love historical fiction. I thoroughly loved todays devotion as well – it made me think of all the homes that I grew up in and the memories associated with each of them.

  78. Gail November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Thank you for the link! I’m intrigued by the setting for this new book and have just added it to my “must read” list.

  79. Cherry November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I love historical fiction. I have learned more about history – and become excited about history from reading fiction. I particularly like Susan Meissner’s books, because I love the contemporary plots she writes about current relational issues.

  80. Deborah November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I just found this site and LOVE it already. Can not wait to begin getting and reading these wonderful books!! I LOVE this table runner and definitely can give it a very good home.
    Thank you for opportunity!!

  82. Lane Hill House November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I would love to have this beautiful quilted table runner!! I loved this month’s selection by Susan Meissner! I am part of the book club and will be reading it a second time. All of you are going to enjoy “A Sound Among the Trees”! You are in for a surprise at the switch midway through. Here is my favorite snippet [Susan, I am just going to give away SUSPENSE!]: First sentence, Chapter Twenty-Three:
    “Marielle eased her body down the wooden steps, her sodden sneakers turning brown with subterranean dirt and dust.”

    But… start at the beginning!! Enjoy!

  83. Uli Walker November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    The description of the book makes me curious to read it. God bless!

  84. Lana November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I really needed the devotion on Proverbs 31 today. My father passed away 7 years ago today and have really been dealing good that past years, but for some reason today I keep remembering the day and how everything played out from being notified myself to telling my grandparents. For some reason I am having a rather emotional day today and this was exactly what I needed to hear. I have also just recently started walking and listening to some fictional christian books and love the storyline of this book, I will probably check into the the 1st one as well. Thanks for the encouragement today!! God always provides!!

  85. Carol November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Would love to win the quilt! It reminds me of my grandmother and how I used to help her quilt – of course back then, everything was done by hand. I still have quilts that you can see my little left handed stitches next to her beautiful ones.

  86. janet November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    wow sounds and looks like an awesome book

  87. Nancy November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I have a few of Susan’s novels, and have enjoyed them all. Would love to win this one! Thanks for the chance. i love the cover.

  89. Cheryl Rose November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I am so excited about reading this book and want to read all Susan’s books (just from what I have seen on this comment page :) I would also love to win the quilt because I have such wonderful memories of my grandmother and quilts she made that look so much like this one. I wish I still had some of hers :( Sure do miss her too.
    Thank you for the wonderful oppurtunity to try to win these lovely gifts and for introducing me to another wonderful author.

    can’t find the entry directions for the other contests?

  91. Pam November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Sounds like a wonderful story can’t wait to read the book!! And the quilt is beautiful too!

  92. Nan November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Wow! That really hit home! We are in the middle of a legal mess with the mortgage company about our home. And as a compromise, we had to move out while the negotiations drag on and on and on. . .It has been especially hard on me to leave and possible loose this house we have called home for the past 15 years. And although I take the direction to “pray without ceasing” literally about this situation, I still battle anger, fear, frustration, and depression. Your devotion spoke directly to me and my needs. It reminded me to once again hand it all over to God and to rest fully in his love and trust his plan for our lives. Thanks!

  93. Jan November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Books like this is what i love to read.

  94. Tina Emery November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    A Sound Among the Trees sounds like a great historical novel. I enjoy inspirational fiction and would love to the win the book and the table runner. Thanks for the chance.

  95. Richelle November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I especially love historical fiction. Have never read a Susan Meissner novel, but see I have been missing out! Will definitely have to check this new one out and find her other books, as well. Thank you for highlighting her!

  96. Brandy November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    This looks like a fantastic book!

  97. NancyJill November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Looking forward to reading this book…book club is next Tuesday and that is when we begin!

  98. Eve M. November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I loved The Shape of Mercy and am looking forward to this book as well.

  99. Nichole C. November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I love Civil War Books. I can’t wait to get a chance to read this book.

  100. Nancy November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I loved Susan’s book The Shape of Mercy so I cannot wait to read her new one!

  101. Nancy Boltz November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I am definitely going to check out this author. This book looks good!

  102. Cammi hevener November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Can’t wait to pick this one up in the bookstore and get started! Thank you for sharing the info !

  103. Gloria Schilling November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    You have introduced me to a new author. Her newest book sounds very interesting! I appreciated today’s ‘Encouragement’ articale by Susan. I have enjoyed having the privilege of going back to my growing-up home (from ages 5-20) and also the home of 43 years that our children grew up in. Fortunately, they are homes that are being taken care of and loved with new generations of children and family. My Heavenly home reads like a place I will embrace as ‘home’, also, and anticipate it!
    I am a ‘novice’ quilter and the quilt looks good!! Have a good day!

  104. Mary Blair November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I love historical christian fiction. What an awesome giveaway!!!

  105. SUSAN G. November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I was stirred by just reading the title! I would love to read this book – “A Sound Among the Trees”. Thank you Susan for sharing your gift of writing – to all of us who can’t write but LOVE to read. :)
    Blessings from another
    Susan

  106. Myra November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I love reading books about the Civil War. Can’t wait to check this one out….

  107. Sarah November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I am wondering why no one has told me about She Reads. What a wonderful site for Christian readers. I found you through Proverbs 31 Ministries that was forwarded from a dear friend. I have signed up for your newsletter and am looking forward to the first one. Thanks, Sarah

  108. Linda Pierson November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    The table runner is beautiful! Looking forward to reading Susan’s new book.

  109. Cindy November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I read the devotional today and wept. We recently moved many hours from “home” and I have been feeling very homesick today. Thank you for sharing God’s word. It spoke to my heart.

  110. Pam November 1, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I’m looking forward to reading Susan’s new book.

  111. Patricia November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    I just love “She Reads’ it’s so special I have shared it with my friends and the emails with the cute clips and sayings all so special and makes you feel is is just for “you”…I love to read and have passed that on to my children ever since they were babies I would read to them, my youngest Malachi is in 8th grade and reads at a 10.5 grade level. He works hard and I believe his joy for reading has helped him so much through school…I would love to win the book, the runner but feel like a winner when i read such inspiring devotionals such as the one today and it leads me to She Reads….
    Thank you & Be Blessed

  112. Kathy Scott November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    Being a Confederate history buff, I can’t wait to read more of this enchanting book by
    Susan Meissner. I would be delighted to win a copy and if not, will be sure to purchase a copy for my own. The first chapter was a teaser and makes me want to pursue further reading. Thank you for the great preview and the insights this book will bring.

  113. Marti Wiersema November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    God is so good to supply comfort–I can relate to those times when you don’t feel at home. Thanks for being a conduit of His principles, Susan and Proverbs 31 women. The quilt is so beautiful–I can just imagine the hours of working together that went into its creation.

  114. Terri Arrowood November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    I love getting these emails and the daily blogs fromt he women who write. I love how God uses iron to sharpen iron as He uses one mind to give light to a subject or need or change of heart. Only the spirit of God who knows all things can deliver wisdom and truth and make changes to a heart without bruising or crippling. He delivers with truth and it is a joy to read the wisdom that flutters off the pages of these eblogs, like a bird set to flight our hearts are lifted to truth in love. And who God sets free is free indeed.

    I know my daughter would love this book as she is a fan of the Southern way and Civil War era and just recently rededicated her life to Christ and my son 24 years just accepted Christ and was baptized August. How merciful our God!

    Love to all who read these blogs and may God’s precious Holy Spirit continue to teach and admonish in Love all that read and search for more of Him. He will fill to the fullest where we splash out on others the abundance He so lavishly pours in.

    Terri :)

  115. Ellen S November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    I just finished this book last week-a borrowed copy from the library. It was very enjoyable. If I were to win a copy I’d give it to my sister to enjoy. Can’t wait to chat about it with the group.

  116. Rosanna November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    I enjoyed reading “The Shape of Mercy” and look forward to getting my hands on Ms. Meissner’s next novel. I have signed up for She Reads newsletters and I eagerly wait to hear more on other Christian authors.
    In Him,
    Rosanna

  117. Jennifer Kozar November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    This sounds fantastic I will be requesting it from the library today! Each and every book I have read that has been recommended here I have just loved! I have continued to request books by the authors and look forward to being introduced to even more.

  118. Magdala Ray November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    Thank you for another great lead to a good read!

  119. Elaine Yeutter November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    I have always throughly enjoyed Christian fiction and am looking forward to reading Susan Meissner’s books as I have not had the privilege of doing so yet. I am not a member of a book club but appreciate your web page that gave such through information on the newest reads. I always enjoy the daily readings on Proverb 31 Ministries and gather many ideas for my sermons that are presented in our local jail. God bless you in your ministrey.
    Elaine Yeutter

  120. Teresa November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    WOW! Sounds like a very interesting read!

  121. Colette Stetler November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    I love quilts and the power they hold to remind us of our treasured past and family. I have several from my grandmother, who recently died, and proudly display them. They are perfect for curling up with a good book.

  122. Chris November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    Can’t wait to read this one!!

  123. Jennifer Rae November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    Historical fiction is my favorite! Look forward to reading this book!

  124. Robin November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    The book sounds very interesting and the table runner would look great on my table!

  125. Nicole A Boles November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    Unfortunantely I’ve lived in quite a few homes since I left my parents house as a young women… bad relationship after bad relationship has given me many cold empty shells to walk away from. Funny… everytime I pass by one I remember a few good times but those memories are thickly shrouded by the bad times. Sometimes I look around my own home that I’ve lived in now 3 times (a rent house my parents own that will one day be mine) and we’re renovating it and I imagine what it would be like if it were an empty shell with no people in it, no talk or laughter, no smell of coffee in the morning or dinner cooking in the evening. Thats a horrifying thought. Yes, lot of conflicting, confusing feelings associated with places we call “home” because of the bond our hearts hold with our “homes” despite any negative experiences we have had there…

    Sounds like it would be an interesting read. Maybe one day I’ll be lucky enough to read it. :-)

  126. karenk November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    thanks for the chance to read susan’s latest masterpiece :)

  127. Mary Johnson November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    I was happy to come across your website. I love to read expecially christian authors. But, I hadn’t seen anything recently that I wanted to read until I read about “A Sound Among the Trees.” It is a great witness to my children and others when they see me reading a christian book. I am out much of the time at lunch; so, while I have my lunch in a restaurant people will ask what am I reading. It is a great way to start a conversation and witness to others.

  128. Carmen November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    Thank you for the recommendation. I look forward to reading the book.

  129. Kathleen Knutson November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    Sounds very interesting.

  130. Carrie Turansky November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    I have enjoyed several of Susan’s books, and I look forward to reading A Sound Among the Trees. Thanks for sharing more about this book and the others you have recommended.
    Blessings,
    Carrie

  131. Gealean Irwin November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    I had never heard of Susan Meissner but now that I have read the first of both books, The Shape of Mercy and A Sound Among the Trees, I am hooked. Headed to the library to see if they have any of her books. Love books with history in them and to read books by a Christian author is an added bonus. Thanks for the introduction.

  132. BobbiD November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    I am so excited about Susan Meissner’s new book. I have read all of her others and I love the She Reads posts. I would love to win a copy of the new book!

  133. Robin Adams November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    I just signed up for Proverbs 31 daily devotions. Was I ever surprised to see the book selection for the month was one that I have listed to load onto my Kindle! I love Civil War stories and can’t wait to start reading this one. It looks like a keeper! Thank you.

  134. Linda A. November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    I am looking forward to reading or should I say listening to this book. I have it downloaded onto my Ipod and am going to be reading along with the forum.

  135. Janet R November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    What a terrific resource “She Reads” is! This new book sounds exciting and absorbing! I’m putting it on my To-Read list, in case I’m not a winner!
    Thanks, Proverbs 31!

  136. Diane November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    I love having the opportunity to read the first two chapters and that is all I need to get hooked on a good book. Looking forward to how this story will unfold.

  137. Sarah H. November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    I read the devotion this morning and decided that A Sound Among the Trees should be our book club book for the next month, so our women’s book club at church will be reading it together. So excited! I don’t want to be in the drawing though, I am going to get started tomorrow! Thanks!

  138. Pam November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    So looking forward to getting this book and then passing it on to my daughters!

  139. michelle glenn November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

  145. Stephanie November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    I, too, love historical fiction! Thanks so much for introducing me to new reads!

  146. Susan Meissner November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    I so appreciate all your insightful comments!

  147. brenda November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    this book looks awesome!!! I cant wait to start reading!!

  148. Rebecca November 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

  149. Geri November 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Thanks for introducting me to Susan Meissner. I enjoy historical fiction and look forward to reading her novels. Proverbs 31 Ministries and She Reads have been such a blessing to me. Thank your for all your efforts!

  150. Joy Cook November 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I am definitely going to read this book. I love this website!

  151. ashley November 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

  152. Kathy E. Comp November 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I’m a reader and am always looking for great books; glad to discover She Reads. Hope to win a copy of this new book!

  153. Pat November 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I really enjoy reading anything perusing to the
    Civil War. I’ve never read any of Susan’s
    books and would love to win her latest
    novel. Also, today’s devotional really spoke
    to me. Think I’ll visit the nursing home
    near me this week.

  154. Sheila November 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I enjoy the daily devotions from Proverbs 31 ministries & I look forward to reading this novel! Thank you for all the work you wonderful ladies of God put into these devotions, blogs, books, etc! Thank you for allowing God to use each of you to minister to SO MANY women everyday! God bless you!

  155. Grandma Bonnie November 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I love reading Proverbs 31 daily and was so happy to click here and find out about “She Reads”, i have signed up to receive this newsletter as well. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to see what’s being offered to read.

  156. Julia November 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    This sounds like a wonderful book! Looking forward to reading it soon.

  157. carol McCaslin November 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I’m on looking forward to reading this one.

  158. Laura November 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I am so glad to meet a new Christian author. Thank you for introducing me to her. Her books sound so intriguing and I can’t wait to dive into them. I am going to love being transported to the Civil War era.

  159. Jackie November 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I love novels set in the south! Am eager to read this one!

  160. Katie Ganshert November 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Wow – I love this website and this whole concept! Not only because I’m an avid reader, but because I’m an author. My debut novel hits shelves this May (also through Waterbrook Press) and what an amazing way to get Christian fiction books on people’s radars. Thanks for this ministry!

    Just a side note, I love Susan Meissner. The Shape of Mercy was amazing. And since A Sound Among the Trees is already on my to-be-read pile, I’d love to join in on this one.

  161. Leah November 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I was reading Susan’s devotional yesterday and marveling at how perfect it fit the needs of my heart right now. Two and a half years ago my husband and I made the move of our lives, packing up everything and moving across the country to live near our daughter and start life over after months of unemployment nearly cost us everything. So thankful for the place we live now, but my heart aches at times for the only home I’ve ever really known before this, sometimes catching me off guard. Susan’s timely reminder that God is our home, was just what I needed. It’s not a place. The longing we feel for a place is really a longing for God. He alone can truly satisfy it completely. Perfectly. (How ironic that the city I lived in my entire life, and left, was the same city where Susan lives. Imagine that.)

  162. Jean Persons November 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Just found She Reads. Looking forward to reading this book and future suggestions.

  163. Cheryl Armstrong November 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    This book would make a great Christmas present for my mom!

  164. Pamela November 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Just spent the past 15 minutes or so engrossed in the story! So happy to have happened upon the website and to learn of the book club. Sharing with my sister-in-law as well. Thank you!

  165. wanda November 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Can’t wait to read your new book!!!!

  166. Susan Meissner November 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Leah, thanks for sharing your story! We had a move due to unemployment once. It was such a hard year bu we saw God provide time and time again. You almost have to go through a season like that to see that part of Him…

  167. Cathy November 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    The Shape of Mercy was such a gripping, well-written novel that I am still passing it around. I am excited to have the opportunity to read another of Susan Meissner’s novels.

  168. Kandra November 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    It sounds like a wonderful book! And I love the table runner. Thanks for hosting the giveaway.

  169. Cheryl Olson November 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    This looks like a great book and I love reading about the Civil war era. The table runner is beautiful as well, what a fun giveaway! I have not read Susan’s books before, but I will definitely be reading this one. Blessings!

  170. carmen November 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    This book looks very interesting! I look forward to getting to know this author.

  171. Lori Benton November 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I’ve also been a fan of Susan’s books since reading The Shape of Mercy. I’ve since listened to it on audio and read Lady in Waiting. I’m looking forward to reading A Sound Among the Trees. It’s on my TBR list.

  172. Mary Kay November 2, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    I’m with you, Ariel. An addiction to Susan Meissner novels is a blessed one to have!

    Since I’m focusing so much on finishing a current WIP that is set partly in the Civil War era, I’ve tried to resist reading A sound Among the Trees–but may have to rethink that so I can join the on-line forum. I love discussing books, and sadly it seems most in the small community where I live don’t like to read! (Go figure. I cannot.) No attempts at starting a local book club have yet worked. So I look forward to a cyber group.

  173. Marisha November 2, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    thank for today’s devotion. It encouraged me to recognize (again) that He is my home, despite where I am geographically and say a prayer to try and move on and long for the past (where I think still was my perfect home).

  174. Jan Dellwo November 2, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    20 years ago I married my teenage sweetheart after his marriage broke up. I moved into his home (the home he and his wife had built and lived in together), and became a step-mother to his two children. We later had two sons together, too. A year ago, we found out he had a brain tumor and this past March he went home to be with the Lord. I’ve never read any of Susan Meissner’s books, but this one intrigues me; I think I might have a few things in common with her main character. I love to read when I can and right now would love the diversion from the realities of my changed life!

  175. Cassandra November 2, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    Love Susan’s books! I can’t wait to read this one.

  176. Katie November 2, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    Love Southern lit. Looks like a great read.

  177. Wilma Metcalf November 2, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    Please enter me in this great give away.
    Love the cover on the book & would love to win it.

    Thank you,
    Wilma

  178. Nicole Ray November 2, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    I have been a fan since I ordered my signed copy of Why the Sky is Blue several years ago. I really enjoy her books! The table runner is also a lovely gift to win as well!

  179. Donna Gray November 2, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    I want to thank Susan for the devotion she wrote in reference to Ecclesiates 3:11b
    “He has planted eternity in the human heart”. It’s good to know that even in times of turmoil, God has made his dwelling with me, He is in my heart. I can be at peace, feeling safe and secure. Praise to the Lord for He is good. What a great God we have.

  180. Jess November 2, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    Man, I love Susan Meissner! My first book of hers was Blue Heart Blessed and I have enjoyed all others I’ve read (particularly Lady in Waiting). Thanks! :)

  181. Stacey November 2, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    This is my second book of Susan’s. I’m off to get started on it now. I’ve loved all of your recommendations here so keep sending them our way!
    Thanks, Stacey

  182. Debi R November 2, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    I’ve never read this author, but l’ve been looking for a November selection. Thanks!

  183. Kim November 2, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    Love the Civil War era and the fascinating women who lived it! Can’t wait to read this book! Currently reading Patti Lacy’s “Rhythm of Secrets”, another Christian author who writes about women and the experiences that shape their lives and their faith. I consider myself to be an honorary Southerner as my husband and I moved to Texas from Indiana as newly weds. Oh the memories of homesickness! I didn’t really know the Lord then. But now I understand that I am never really far from “home” as He is with me wherever I am! I am now in Illinois and I miss the beautiful spring bluebonnets and Indian paintbrush! Look forward to reading A Sound Among the Trees!

  184. Sue November 3, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Love these kind of books!!!!! Sounds good:)

  185. Suzie November 3, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Susan, I can’t wait to get this one into my hands!! I’ve got lots of PTO I have to take before years end and plan on doing LOTS of reading. I’m so grateful to God that He has used you in such an awesome way!!

  186. Janet Literal Skiles November 3, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Amazing! Just found you. I’m 57 and have longed for a Godly group of women to read with, share with pray with….Gotta get this book ordered so I can get started!

  187. Allison November 3, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Looks like a great read! I’ve read one other book by this author and loved it. I’m sure the new one will be great also! Can’t wait to read it!

  188. Shari November 3, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    I’m a quilter, so would love to win the table runner. And I love to read!
    I can’t wait to read one of her books.

  189. Vallie McCullough November 3, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    I’m looking forward to reading this month’s selection!

  190. Kay November 3, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    I enjoyed this author’s devotion on Proverbs 31… If her books are as good as this,
    they should be really good… Looking forward to reading this new novel… I love books
    with a southern setting…

    I started reading this book on my kindle. It is my first kindle book. I love the story. But still like real paper books better. Love to win a copy. thanks,

    I love Susan’s writing, and she’s an incredibly kind and welcoming person too! (She kindly talked with me at She Speaks and is always sweet on Twitter.) Thanks for featuring her here this month! And thanks for this kind opportunity.

    I am so thankful that I read about your books this morning on Proverbs 21. I am going straight to my library on line and reserve The Shape of Mercy. I am looking forward getting a copy of A Sound Among the Trees. I always pass my books to my daughter(almost 50 yrs old) when I have read them, and then we pass it on. I love christian fiction.

    Just finished “A Sound among the Trees”. The story of Holly Oak and the women living in there captured my mind so I couldn ´t stop reading … I think it the best novel of Susan Meissner so far – and I already know some of them. Could say I ´m a fan of Susan Meissner, although I ´m from Germany. Some of her books we have in German language, but this one I ´ve read on my Kindle!
    Also I want to send a big THANK YOU to the team of “She reads”: I read every single one of your news here in Germany! Love the way you write about writing and writers!!!

    Thanks for coming by, Monika. Always such a treat to hear from you!

    I just discovered your website from Rachelle Gardner’s website. I’m so excited to find this site and to join and participate in the She Reads book club. I’ve been a book addict since I was a child (and now seem to be making book addicts of at least one – if not two – of my children).

    I’m always looking for new authors whose books not only entertain but enrich me so though I’ve never read any Susan Meissner’s works, I plan to remedy that soon.

    I enjoy finding new authors, looking forward to reading this book.

    I just finished The Shape of Mercy for my church’s book club meeting next week and I was blown away by it! Couldn’t put it down. It’s my first Susan Meissner book, but I know it won’t be my last! Thank you for sharing your talents and gifts. God bless you!

    I just read “The Remedy for Regret ” by Susan and it was great. This one looks good also.

    Just received my book in the mail and can’t wait to start it. Every month the book club book is so good!

    Can’t wait to read A Sound Among the Trees. It sounds like a great book for my book club.

    Honestly, I am not a big historical fiction fan, but She Reads has not let me down yet; so, I’m in! I am waiting for my copy of the book to arrive so I can participate in the DB forum as well!

    Thanks She Reads!

    Looking forward to reading A Sound Among the Trees. I am an avid reader and love historical fiction especially. Thank you for the opportunity to win this wonderful book.

    I can’t wait to read this book by Susan Meissner. I live close to Gettysburg so it’s hard not to get caught up in the Civil War era. Thanks for the interview!

  212. Hannah B November 14, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    I haven’t read any of Susan’s books yet, but I would love the opportunity because I enjoy historical fiction and reading worthwhile books.

    Not sure if I had signed up for this drawing last month so here I am again…hoping I didnt miss it!

  214. cammih December 1, 2011 at 10:17 pm #

    Just about half way thru the book but enjoying it very much!

  215. Kathy Scott December 2, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    This book sounds intriguing. Anything to do with the Civil War (we call it the “War between the States)is of interest to me and combined with a mystery, it must be compelling.
    Susan Meissner is a talented writer and I look forward to inhaling her book! I really can read all day when faced with material that pulls me into its contents. May God bless these authors who produce such works that bring us closer to our Lord.
