New Christian Boys’ Adventure Novels Giveaway!
Sure don't want to be accused of "tooting my own horn" but I must remind you I am a mother! Mothers do get excited when their progeny have exciting things happen in their lives! So it is with a grateful heart that I am able to share with you that Youngest Son has had not just one, but two new books published! What makes this even better news is that the publisher is Vision Forum, which has been an incredible blessing in the lives of our family.
Youngest Son has worked hard and been given a unique opportunity to become a published author. Perhaps it means so much to me because, you see, I was the one who had the privilege of teaching this young man how to read. Yes, I must tell you that even frugal little me celebrated the night the books came into stock with steak and ice cream!
So without any further ado, let me share that if you are looking for some God-honoring character building literature for young people around the ages of 8 to 16, these high-spirited adventure novels may be just what you are looking for! Because I am so excited about this blessing in the life of Youngest Son, I am offering a giveaway of a set of both novels here on Frugalhacks.com.
The Boy Colonel: A Soldier Without a Name
The year is 1836. A mysterious young English soldier known as the “Boy Colonel” commands a crack regiment in the snowy wastelands of Siberia. No one knows his history. No one knows his name. The Cossacks want him dead — but are they the only ones? It seems his worst enemy may wear an English uniform.
The Boy Colonel strives to perform his duty, but when that duty becomes mixed he must decide which sovereign is greater — the king of England, or the God of the Bible. Treachery, intimidation, and deceit block his path. His choice of allegiance may mean the difference between life and death. Is he prepared to risk all to protect his loved ones?
Brothers at Arms: Treasure & Treachery in the Amazon
Lawrence and Chester Stoning are twins, but like Jacob and Esau of old they have little else in common. Lawrence is a realist, fascinated by the study of science, mathematics, and history, while Chester longs for the knightly adventures of chivalrous times past — hard-fought battles, gold-filled caves, damsels in distress.
When Chester’s impetuosity engages the unlikely pair as bodyguards to a Spaniard and his beautiful ward Pacarina, the twins quickly realize that the 19th century calls for a chivalry of its own. Protecting Pacarina’s secret leads all of them into the steaming jungles and dizzying mountains of Peru, a foreboding territory made all the more dangerous by Lawrence and Chester’s strivings against each other. Can the twins learn to trust God and work together before it’s too late? Or will they fall prey to the mysterious schemes of Pacarina’s enemy — an enemy they know nothing about?
