Well, it happened: I got tagged again! This time for the newest Tricia Goyer historical title, A Whisper of Freedom. I've not read this yet, since I'm just now reading the first of the series, but I'm very much looking forward to it!
About the book:
Battles heat up...not only those being waged by the soldiers on both sides fighting for Spain, but in the hearts and minds of the men and women who must sacrifice more than their dreams to save the lives of their loved ones.
In this meticulously researched novel, brave and idealistic Sophie, Philip, Jose, and Deion realize their only hope for freedom is escaping Spain's borders.
By continuing the story of this band of volunteers during the Spanish Civil War, A Whisper of Freedom proves that there are whispers of hope and liberty that resonate through even the darkest night.

TAG, YOU’RE IT! I'm Tagging you, the reader, with these questions. (My answers follow each question.)
1. List three things you would do with a chest full of gold (assuming you got to keep it!)
Tithe. :-) Not being legalistic or anything, but.... And then, pay all our immediate debts (credit card, yes, sadly we have one; house; property). Split the rest between travel, savings, and helping someone in need.
2. List three charities/missions/organizations you support (and why).
Various veteran’s associations, because we are a military family and my adoptive dad was a WW2 vet. Voice of the Martyrs, because they have a unique and much-overlooked ministry. Various missionaries through our church, because missions are close to my heart.
3. List three ways you have volunteered your time/services.
Leading Bible study, childbirth education and labor support, preparing meals for new mothers or the bereaved.
4. List three things you keep "hidden" when company comes over.
Laundry (clean or otherwise), as much clutter as possible! (Yes, that’s only two...it really depends upon the company.)
5. List the last three things you've lost.
My checkbook, a child’s brand-new shoe, and a paper containing semi-important information about a church outing my 14-yo daughter wants to attend.
6. List the last three things you've found.
The child’s shoe, the first book of Tricia’s Spanish Civil War series (it was hiding under something in my room)...and a new appreciation for my mother. :-)
Three brave "players" will be selected at random to win their own lost gold (gourmet chocolate coins and all three books in the Chronicles of the Spanish Civil War series). To enter all you have to do is answer the MEME on your blog and then leave a comment on Tricia’s blog tour post (see below) that you’ve posted your MEME. Easy.
