The consequences of the scandalous event continue to reverberate, touching the next generation.

And Jon’s mistress is being courted by a suitor who may be more menacing than he initially seems.

I'd love to read this book, I really enjoyed her "Drowning Ruth".
Of Oprah's Club Picks I got the most from reading "Night" by Elie Wiesel, and I'd really like to read "Stones From The River" by Ursula Hegi as I've already read "The Vision of Emma Blau" and some of the same characters are involved.
Thank you for making this contest open to Canadians.

This does sound good! I would like to be entered into your contest. One of my all-time favorite books was an Oprah pick, Stones From a River by Ursula Hegi. I was really drawn to Trudy's story and have always been interested in the time period the book is set in.

The book that I really want to read from Oprah's Book Club picks is Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy. I actually wanted to read it since high school, but never really thought about it until now. Maybe I'll actually get to it soon.

I blogged and linked to your giveaway here:

I have a lot of Oprah's books on Mt. TBR, but of those I've read thus far, "I Know This Much is True" by Wally Lamb has probably been my favorite. I also liked "Middlesex" a lot too! And I did read "Drowning Ruth" and liked that one quite a bit as well. So I'd love to enter -- thanks for the opportunity! :')
