“The Move” Giveaway #5 (AUS Only)

Oh yeah, moving on to the 5th book!

A Quick Review of the last read: Legacy: A Novel by James A. Michener

The book opens with Major Norman Starr troubled with the thought of having to appear before a congressional committee about one of his covert actions in serving his country in the Army.  For most the book, Major Norman Starr pondered on the history of his family, 5-6 generations back, on each individual who had taken it on to see that the Constitution of the United States is being held up rightly.  This book has a very patriotic voice, of keeping true to the Constitution and unity of the states.  It encourages for action to be taken, if something has veered off from the spirit of the Constitution but also to utilise these laws that were put in place as they were meant to.

As there were no interest, I’ll be offering this book to my f2f bookclubbers in 2 weeks’ time and if no one is interested there, I’ll be releasing it to the wild via bookcrossing.   So, I’ve used random.org to determine my next read:
