The Measure of the Moon by Lisa Preston Giveaway (US only)

The Measure of the Moon
Lisa Preston

“If you ever say anything to anyone, they all die.”

When eight-year-old Greer Donner falls off his horse in the Washington wilderness, he braces himself to face the long hike home alone. But screams pierce the darkness, and he stumbles upon a dead-end road where a man is beating a woman—nearly to death. In a moment of courage, he stops the assault, but he’s left to face the man, who turns his wrath into an ominous threat: if the boy ever reveals what he has seen, his family will pay the ultimate price. The secret Greer now carries begins his emotional unraveling.

In Seattle, Gillian Trett is a photographer with a troubled marriage and a childhood she’s trying to forget. Domestic tension mounts when her husband’s stepsister arrives. Desperate for a distraction, and a way to advance her career, Gillian throws herself into uncovering the history behind an old man’s Holocaust photo of boys in a forest. The mysterious children and the truth behind the scene haunt her—she can’t let go of the image, or of her own shadowed past.

Then a horrifying revelation entangles Gillian’s path with young Greer’s. The boy and the woman, separated by a generation and a hundred miles, each confront the terrible power of harbored secrets—not only to eclipse the truth but also to illuminate the dark, unknown dimensions of their loved ones and themselves.

Books à la Mode is giving away one print copy of The Measure of the Moon—yay!

To enter, all you have to do is tell me in the comments below:
What is your star sign? Do you think its traits are fitting with your personality?
Please make your comment MEANINGFUL. Comments solely consisting of stock responses or irrelevant fluff like "Thanks for the giveaway!" will not be considered for entry. Lisa and I really want to hear from you guys! :)

Interestingly enough, I am at the cusp of a Leo and Virgo; depending on the source, my birthday falls right at the cutoff of both signs. Leo the lion, king of the jungle, a leader vs. Virgo the virgin, an angel. I feel like I can identify with the traits of both, but don't really lean towards one or the other strongly (e.g. I like being in a position of authority but not the center of attention), which I suppose is appropriate!

Don't forget the entry eligibility terms and conditions!
