Splash Into Summer Giveaway Winner

Thank  you for joining us for the Splash Into Summer Giveaway Hop, hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Page Turners! Did you have fun?

Before we announce the winner of the prize pack, I asked my colleagues to share some of their favourite frozen treats during the summer, and here’s what they had to say:

“Soft vanilla ice cream… Yum!” – Alison
“A lime slushy.” – Kathryn
“A creamsicle!” – Pamela
“Ice cream sandwiches!” – Sylvia (that’s me)

Okay, time to add all our subscribers and comment entries, pull up the magical random generator, and it tells us…

“The opening chapters give little hints of the intensity of Jocelyn’s…exquisitely honed novel…. Although the plot line sounds like that of a standard weeper, the author resists the urge to magnify emotions. Natalie reacts honestly, neither beautifully nor nobly…. The light touch with which Jocelyn handles her difficult material is best seen when Claire is declared brain-dead and taken off life support: the humanity in the author’s treatment affords the readers a sense both of grief and of peace.” – Starred Review, Publishers Weekly
