Review AND Giveaway of Jubilee's Journey by Bette Lee Crosby

Jubilee wasn't supposed to be Jubilee, and Paul was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Jubilee and Paul had to leave their childhood home since both their mother and their father had died and no one was allowed to live in the house unless they worked in the mines.  Since Paul promised his father he would NEVER work in the mines, he and Jubilee left the town in search of their Aunt Anita who didn't even know they existed.

Jubilee was the sweetest child, and Paul was a wonderful teenager any parent would want as their son.  Paul had to take care of Jubliee when their mother died and then after their father died, but then look what happened.

You are saying....what happened?  Well, you have to read this amazing book to find out. :)

You will fall in love with Jubilee and feel sorry for Paul.  Olivia was the most wonderful person you would ever want to meet.  Ethan Allen was mischievous but oh so lovable. Each character works well with each other and carries the story along with an unforgettable and heartwarming storyline.

Ms. Crosby has written yet another marvelous book that will steal your heart, make you think about your family, and make you not want the book to end.  Ms. Crosby just knows how to put together a remarkable story that holds your interest from the first sentence.
       
Ms. Crosby writes amazing books with delightful, exceptional characters.  This one will not be a disappointment in terms of characters either.

If nothing else gets you, but I know it will, the cover is enough to draw you right in.  Don't miss JUBILEE’S JOURNEY or any of Ms. Crosby's books.  They all have a feel good theme and a theme that conveys Ms. Crosby’s love of writing, sharing, and giving.

This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by the author in return for an honest review.

  1. Hi Elizabeth,

    I am so pleased that you published this post nice and early, so that I was able to participate in the giveaway here in the UK, before leaving for work, it is now 05:46am.

    Bette Lee Crosby is a new author to me, so I spent a lovely few minutes reading your excellent review and checking out Bette's website, before deciding that yes, I really do need to be in with a chance of reading this story for myself.

    Whatever the outcome, Bette's is a name now firmly on my radar for the future, so thank you for the lovely feature.

    Enjoy the rest of your week,

    Yvonne
