Giveaway: THE MOON LOOKED DOWN by Dorothy Garlock

First I thought, I'd really like to read this book, so I entered some giveaways around the blogosphere. Now I find out that Hachette Book Group is allowing me offer my own giveaway! I'll be giving away five (5) copies of THE MOON LOOKED DOWN and posting my own review in a few weeks. (So, if I actually win any giveaways offered by other bloggers, I won't be accepting a copy - Hachette is sending me one for review! Thank you, Hachette!)

Rules for entering this giveaway are at the bottom of this post.

Synopsis (from the publisher):

The new Americana romance from bestselling author Dorothy Garlock, this time set against the backdrop of WWII.

Sophie Heller's family immigrated from Germany to Victory, a small town in Illinois, before WWII began. Now that the war has affected the town, the townspeople discriminate against Sophie and her family. When a train derails, it is an accident but the Heller family is blamed. Coming to Sophie's rescue is a teacher from the high school, and despite their cultural differences, a romance starts to bloom.

About the author (from the publisher):

Here's what Kristen Ramsdell of Library Journal has to say about this book: "The true strength here lies in the author's choice of theme and setting and her exceptional ability to make that place spring vividly to life. "

This sounds like such an interesting book to read. This is a form of prejudice that I have not read about during this time period in America.
