WINNER!!!! traceyj40
Thank you all for following my blog...I'm giving away a copy of The Love of Divena (Blessings in India, #3) by Kay Marshall Strom as a Thank YOU!!
Just be a follower of my blog and leave a comment!!

I just finished this look into India's cast system. I cannot even imagine living under these conditions.
Anjan has been dropped at her Grandmother's door...almost literally. Can you imagine naming your daughter "Fear"? Her Grandmother changes her name to Divena ,"Divine Blessing"!
When you read what Divena's father has done to her younger sister, to make her a beggar...make sure you have tissues handy.
I love the way some of the things work out in this story. Learning to the answer. Also with the help of our Lord, a group of these people become Christians. What a difference believing in Him brings to their lives.
To me this Caste systems sounds a lot like slavery in this country. Whippings, branding, beatings, and more! Such injustice.
This is the third book in this series, but it can be read alone. Don't miss this eye opening book!

I received this book through Pump Your Book Publicity Tours and the Publisher Abingdon Press, and was not required to give a positive review.

Again all you have to do is be a follower and leave a comment! Other blogs participating in this tour!

    I am originally from India but grew up in the United States. There are many things I love about my native country but the caste system is NOT one of them. It's shameful, much like racism and intolerance.

    It sounds like an interesting read.
