Free E-Book ‘Reunions in Spring: Meditations for a Holiday Table’ available until March 18th.

In honor of Lent, author Suzanne Gilbert is giving away copies of an Adoption/Genealogy chapbook for Kindle and Kindle app (iPad).

Reunions in Spring: Meditations for a Holiday Table is based on civilization’s oldest adoption memoir. It enjoys a lively retelling every spring through the literary genre of the Hebrew ‘haggadah’. Image

Book Description-
In keeping with this age of redefined families and reproductive technology, maybe it’s time to give it a new look. For example, the adoptee Moses only learns the name of his ancestors (Abraham, Isaac, Jacob) at the Burning Bush, the historian Josephus says that Pharoah’s daughter is infertile,and the Jewish oral tradition or Talmud teaches that she joins Moses and his birth family on the exodus.

A “mixed multitude” (the souls of adopted Korean, Guatemalan, Chinese, Indian and other followers of the Ten Commandments?) stood at Mount Sinai.

Bring memoirs, journaling and the celebrations of spring to a richer level through this blend of haggadah, thumbnail memoirs, modern adoption triad psychology and Passover oral traditions.

Get your free copy here until Tuesday evening, March 18th!

Blessings for a great FREE read,

‘Daughters of Deceit’ Book to Present Story of UK Adoption Reunion

Keep your eye out for a new book, that will chronicle adoptee (and Women’s Open Golf champion) Jenny Lee Smith’s reunion with her birth family in the UK.

After finding out (late in life) that her parents were not her biological parents,  Jenny sought, and found her birth mother.  Her birth mother died not long after the reunion.

Smith also discovered that she had a half-sister, Helen Edwards.  Helen knew nothing of her sister’s existence. The book, which is being considered by several publishers, was  co-authored by the sisters, and shares the secrets, turmoil and triumphs of their journey to reunion.

You can read more about the book and their story in this Chronicle Live UK article, and more about Helen Edwards & Jenny Lee Smith at their homepage.

Looking forward to this one!
