Book Spotlight: Winds of Change by Jean Holbrook Mathews (With a Giveaway!)

May has been a cray-cray month in my household and I am—once again (always?)—behind on everything there is to be behind on.  Unfortunately, that means I just did not get around to reading Winds of Change, an LDS historical novel by Jean Holbrook Mathews, that I was supposed to review today.  Since I've only read a few chapters of the book, I'm not going to do a review of this one, just a quick spotlight.  If it sounds like a book you'd be interested in reading, don't forget to use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter a giveaway for a copy of the book and a $25 Amazon gift card.

Here goes with the novel's official plot summary:

http://www.blogginboutbooks.com/p/lds-authors.htmlThe year is 1854, and change is in the air throughout India.  Within the walls of her grand home in Calcutta, Sarah McCune anxiously awaits the future.  After eighteen months at war, her husband, a sergeant in the Bengal Army of the East India Company, has made an extraordinary proposal: leave all the comforts of their life in Asia for an unknown future in America.  As recent converts to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Sarah and her husband are drawn to the promise of Zion.  So, despite their fears regarding the dangerous voyage before them, they and their four children embark on a journey of faith that will test the limits of their conviction and define generations to come.  This breathtaking saga, based on the historical journals of one Latter-day Saint family, invites readers to experience the sacrifices and perils of these early pioneers as they faithfully seek a land of promise
