GIVEAWAY #2
THE SECRET SPEECH
and
THE WAY HOME


THE SECRET SPEECH
by TOM ROB SMITH

DESCRIPTION:
THE SECRET SPEECH Soviet Union, 1956. Stalin is dead, and a violent regime is beginning to fracture-leaving behind a society where the police are the criminals, and the criminals are innocent. A secret speech composed by Stalin's successor Khrushchev is distributed to the entire nation. Its message: Stalin was a tyrant. Its promise: The Soviet Union will change. Facing his own personal turmoil, former state security officer Leo Demidov is also struggling to change. The two young girls he and his wife Raisa adopted have yet to forgive him for his part in the death of their parents. They are not alone. Now that the truth is out, Leo, Raisa, and their family are in grave danger from someone consumed by the dark legacy of Leo's past career. Someone transformed beyond recognition into the perfect model of vengeance. From the streets of Moscow in the throes of political upheaval, to the Siberian gulags, and to the center of the Hungarian uprising in Budapest, THE SECRET SPEECH is a breathtaking, epic novel that confirms Tom Rob Smith as one of the most exciting new authors writing today.

THE WAY HOME
by GEORGE PELACANOS

DESCRIPTION:
Christopher Flynn is trying to get it right. After years of trouble and rebellion that enraged his father and nearly cost him his life, he has a steady job in his father's company, he's seriously dating a woman he respects, and, aside from the distrust that lingers in his father's eyes, his mistakes are firmly in the past. One day on the job, Chris and his partner come across a temptation almost too big to resist. Chris does the right thing, but old habits and instincts rise to the surface, threatening this new-found stability with sudden treachery and violence. With his father and his most trusted friends, he takes one last chance to blast past the demons trying to pull him back. Like Richard Price or William Kennedy, Pelecanos pushes his characters to the extremes, their redemption that much sweeter because it is so hard fought. Pelecanos has long been celebrated for his unerring ability to portray the conflicts men feel as they search and struggle for power and love in a world that is often harsh and unforgiving but can ultimately be filled with beauty.

This looks great! Please enter me for either!

I'm getting my dad a cordless screwdriver/drill thing that he asked for. I'm just glad it's him who has to figure out how to work the darn thing!

Hi!
I have a father's day gift to buy. I'm thinking about a book.

Both books sound great. I think I would enjoy either audio book, but if I have to choose, THE SECRET SPEECH is my pick.

I have to buy a gift for my dad this father's day. It is getting closer and still not sure what I will be getting him yet. I was thinking a digital frame and adding pictures of his grandchild to it.

I have no idea what to get Dad this year. Will probably take him out to dinner.

I'd prefer The Way Home, but either is good with me.

I plan to buy Father's Day gifts for my husband, who is the father of our 4 grown kids, and for one of our sons, who is the dad of 2 children! Both of them are great dads and I am lucky to have them in my life.

They both love to read and both of these books sound great. I would love to have an audiobook of either one. If I have to choose, my first choice is The Way Home.

I don't have a Father's Day Gift to buy, unfortunately. If my Father was still alive, he would definitely enjoy either of these. Both sound great.

No, I am not buying a Father's Day gift this year. My dad passed away in November.

I'd pick the Secret Speech for my choice :)
And even though both my adopted and birth dads are passed away, I still plan on doing something, somehow to honor them for Father's Day (even if it's just feeding the ducks down at our park and saying a prayer for them)
