Breslin book GIVEAWAY! Realistic Christian Fiction About the Holocaust?

Well, is it doable? Can Christian fiction turn out a truly realistic story about the Holocaust?

I read that someone thought it was doubtful an author could do realistic Christian fiction about the Holocaust. I have to say they were wrong. But you be the judge...
Meet Author Kate Breslin:  A Florida girl who migrated to the Pacific Northwest, Kate Breslin was a bookseller for many years. Next to spending time with her husband and two cats, she loves being with friends and fellow authors. An avid gardener, she makes her own herbal vinegars and oils; she also enjoys traveling—especially visiting other countries and cultures. She’s published several articles on her adventures and collected some great ideas for future books. An award-winning poet and RWA Golden Heart finalist, Kate now writes inspiring stories about the healing power of God’s love.
With years of research and a heart for difficult topics, can Kate put together a novel that will touch hearts with healing and forgiveness? Not only did she in For Such a Time, but bestselling authors agree:
“I absolutely loved this book. FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS kept me up at night, flipping the pages and holding my breath wanting to know what would happen next. Based on the Biblical book of Esther, the story takes the reader to a concentration camp inside World War II Germany, where a young Jewish girl has captured the attention of the Commandant and has the opportunity to save her people, much as Esther did in the Biblical account. The story is gripping, compelling and I dare anyone to close the cover before the last suspenseful page.”

"When I finished Kate Breslin's novel for the first time, I had an urge to flip back to page one and start reading all over again. It's that good. For Such a Time is an intimate portrait painted on grand scale, bringing to life the drama and pain of suffering with the triumph and joy of freedom. This book deserves a wide audience, and newcomer Breslin has a bright future."

--#1 New York Times bestselling author, Susan Wiggs
