… and it’s autographed!!!

Several weeks ago I won a give-away from Saloma at About Amish.  The gift came to me in this sweet home made bag.

It is always nice to win.  But there is something very special about winning a book – especially since books are one of my passions.  But this is not just any book… this book came to me from the person who wrote it.  I am honored.

Saloma wrote a very personal message to me as part of the gift – my first autographed book.  How cool is that?
Dear Deanna, May love and light shine onyou always!  And may you continue to be known affectionately as “Silly Grandma!”  Many Blessings, Saloma

I have not read Why I Left the Amish yet, but know that if she writes in her book anything like she does in her blog, I am going to enjoy it immensely. 
So to Saloma Miller Furlong, I thank you and wish to you Many Blessings back and a successful career as an author.  
If you haven’t yet become a follower of Saloma’s, please take a moment to check her out.  You will be glad you did.

I just started reading her blog (I must have found her through you!) and love it. I have her book on my wish list...

Congrats, Deanna! Sounds like a very interesting book. I'll try to find it and read as I've always been interested in the Amish. Will check out her blog, too.

Very special gift. :)

I have her blog bookmarked to read when I have time, but haven't had a chance yet. Could have done it when I was bored earlier, but didn't think of it. Mind you, there's a lot I "could have" done earlier but didn't. Never mind though... I will get over there to have a look... I really will!

Hope you enjoy the book. Shame it probably wouldn't be available in audio!

Dear Punkn, May love and light shine on you always! And may you continue to be known affectionately as “Silly Grandma!”

Simply perfect.

This book looks really interesting. I'll have to check out her blog.

I'm sure that will be an interesting book. It's hard not to be intrigued by a lifestyle so natural and yet so foreign from our own. It would definitely be quite a journey from one to the other.

OK so why did she leave the Armish?

Lynn said...

Oh wow congrats on your win, that sounds like it is going to be such a good read, I love reading about the Amish and how they live. Enjoy and I hope you and family are well HUGS

Congratulation on winning the book.

I started reading her blog a few weeks ago. I found it from your list of friends. Silly me...I didn't read the name of who won and I know of you! sigh...I should be more attentive.

Take care!

Deanne, I just discovered this... thank you! That is so nice of you to help spread the word about the book.

I've not had the time to read others' blogs, so pardon me on finding this so late.

Many Blessings,
Saloma
