    I think … no, I know I’d enjoy reading “Road to Mercy” because I’ve been wanting to read it for months, but life (and deadlines) keep interfering. And I keep reading wonderful reviews of the book, which only serve to up my anticipation for the book!

    i haven’t read ‘road to mercy’ (yet!)…but i have read many excellent reviews of your novel, kathy…thanks for the giveaway.

    merry christmas to you and yours.

    I would love to read The Road to Mercy because, like Karen, I have seen the wonderful reviews. It sounds fabulous! Thanks for offering such a great giveaway!

  4. Debra Collins December 7, 2012 at 12:42 pm

    I haven’t read, Road to Mercy, but after reading the blurb and all the glowing reviews on Amazon, it sounds like a wonderful book. Now it’s been placed at the top of my “must-read” list.
    Thanks for the opportunity on winning such a wonderful basket full of goodies.

    I think I’d love to read The Road to Mercy because it’s about abortion and I really have a heart for all those babies that don’t get a chance to live.

  6. Julie Lessman December 7, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    WOW, what a giveaway, Kath!! I’m sharing it on FB and Twitter and entering myself because this is TOO GOOD to pass up!!


  7. Wendy Newcomb December 7, 2012 at 6:06 pm

    I think I would enjoy this book because they made a choice that they felt was right for them and depended on their faith. I know someone that had an abortion and even now, many years later, they still suffer with that decision.


  8. Janice December 7, 2012 at 7:09 pm

    Simply, the title, Road to Mercy, makes me want to read the book. I do like the cover and the other reviews I have seen, but what an awesome title for a Christian fiction book. Haven’t we all been on our own “road to mercy?” I would like to read about this imagined one because I know it would be uplifting and leading straight to Jesus.

    Thank you for the chance to win this thoughtfully put together bunch of goodies.
    It will be a sweet Christmas for the winner.
    Blessings, Janice

    I KNOW I would enjoy reading “Road to Mercy” because I just LOVE reading books by Christian authors who are new authors to me. Dr Ben Abrams and Josh both seem to have great reasons to have scenes that are tear jerkers and I love that in a book. Besides the love story ‘with child coming’ element makes things even more difficult to read while dabbing at the eyes.

    Wow… you guys have blown me away. Thanks to each of you for your wonderful note! Wishing good luck on the contest — and a blessed Christmas to you all.

    I would like to read Road to Mercy because I am struggling with my faith and hope there is some hope in this book

  12. wendy December 8, 2012 at 12:17 am

    I would love to win this gift basket and the book. It sounds like a good read.

  13. Sandee Strunk December 8, 2012 at 12:30 am

    I’d enjoy The Road to Mercy because of the important subject matter. Thank you for this opportunity. Blessings, Sandee

  14. Jes December 8, 2012 at 12:35 am

    Wow, what a generous giveaway! Reading the premise of the book, The Road to Mercy sounds like it will be an inspiring read! 🙂

  15. Joy Hannabass December 8, 2012 at 2:58 am

    I had the honor of reading and reviewing The Road to Mercy. A book that teaches love, forgiveness, hope, healing and faith, it is truly one of the best books I’ve read. I highly recommend everyone reading this awesome debut novel from Kathy Harris!

    And this is an awesome giveaway too! I would love to win!

    Jen, I love to read Jeremiah 29:11 when I need a good dose of hope. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (NIV)

  17. admin December 8, 2012 at 4:02 am

    Thanks so much for your kind words about the book, Joy.


  18. Sandi Borgens December 8, 2012 at 11:41 am

    You have a giving heart and to bless someone with this gift basket is a blessing from God. I would like to win the basket for my daughter Anita to bless her this Christmas. I know she would share the books with me. Thank you

  19. JackieW December 8, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    I have not read any of your writings. I would like a chance to do so. Have a very Merry Christmas.

    Almost 27 years ago, during the time of our preemie (1# 9oz) daughters lifespan of 7 months the doctors asked for permission to turn off her machines. Everyone had advice but after brief prayers, we knew that God was in control and it was His decision, not ours. Sarah lived 6 more months and we grew in faith. Your story also led to the couple having to make a decision, I would love the chance to know the rest of the story!

  21. rondah December 9, 2012 at 6:38 am

    I’d like to read it because it is a story of faith

  22. Daphne Self December 9, 2012 at 4:26 pm

    Road to Mercy is a definite must read. I’ve always wondered what would happen if a Christian couple is faced with such a hard choice. Hemingway touched upon it. Others have skirted the issue, afraid to delve in the pysche of their own beliefs. Myself: I would say let my faith rule, but I’ve never been in that situation. Saying is one thing, believing another. This book is something to read,to see the confusing conflict … my interest has been piqued.

  23. Patricia Bradley December 9, 2012 at 9:21 pm

    Wow! I’d love to win the basket. I’ve read Sandwich with a side of Romance and loved it and would like to read The Road to Mercy, too. Great prizes!

  24. Jo December 10, 2012 at 1:41 pm

    What a awesome giveaway! I have been wanting to read “The Road to Mercy” as it is on my wish list. Abortion is a subject dear to my heart. I thank you for this wonderful giveaway!

  25. Jeanne Doyon December 10, 2012 at 5:34 pm

    I haven’t read Road to Mercy yet but would like to, because of my connection to our local crisis pregnancy center. I would donate the copy for their waiting room area after reading it.

  26. admin December 11, 2012 at 5:47 pm

    And the winner is . . . Julie Lessman! Congrats, Julie 🙂 I’ll contact you privately for a shipping address.
