A Change in Altitude GIVEAWAY!! CLOSED

This giveaway is now CLOSED! Congratulations to LuAnn, justpeachy36, xxsquigglesxx, fredamans, and jackie.smith for winning.

A Change in Altitude
by Anita Shreve

Description (from the Hachette Book Group website)

Margaret and Patrick have been married just a few months when they set off on what they hope will be a great adventure-a year living in Kenya. Margaret quickly realizes there is a great deal she doesn't know about the complex mores of her new home, and about her own husband.

A British couple invites the newlyweds to join on a climbing expedition to Mount Kenya, and they eagerly agree. But during their harrowing ascent, a horrific accident occurs. In the aftermath of the tragedy, Margaret struggles to understand what happened on the mountain and how these events have transformed her and her marriage, perhaps forever.

A Change in Altitude illuminates the inner landscape of a couple, the irrevocable impact of tragedy, and the elusive nature of forgiveness. With stunning language and striking emotional intensity, Anita Shreve transports us to the exotic panoramas of Africa and into the core of our most intimate relationships.

About Author

Anita Shreve is the acclaimed author of 14 previous novels, including Testimony; The Pilot's Wife, which was a selection of Oprah's Book Club; and The Weight of Water, which was a finalist for England's Orange prize. She lives in Massachusetts.



MY REVIEW

A Change in Altitude is an interesting book. I would not classify it as an easy read because the story is very sad at times. It took me a few chapters to really get into the story because it took me a bit to get used to the author's writing style. If you are looking for a story that is a bit out of the ordinary than this might be the book for you.

Thanks so much to the Hachette Book Group for sending me a review copy of this book and for sponsoring this giveaway.
