Giveaway: Hazel Woods' This Is How I'd Love You

It's that time again! Flashlight Commentary and Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours are pleased to offer fans of historic fiction a chance to win a free edition of Hazel Woods' This Is How I'd Love You! 

════════════════════════════ ❧  ════════════════════════════

As the Great War rages, an independent young woman struggles to sustain love—and life—through the power of words.

It’s 1917 and America is on the brink of World War I. After Hensley Dench’s father is forced to resign from the New York Times for his anti-war writings, she finds herself expelled from the life she loves and the future she thought she would have. Instead, Hensley is transplanted to New Mexico, where her father has taken a job overseeing a gold mine. Driven by loneliness, Hensley hijacks her father’s correspondence with Charles Reid, a young American medic with whom her father plays chess via post. Hensley secretly begins her own exchange with Charles, but looming tragedy threatens them both, and—when everything turns against them—will their words be enough to beat the odds?

════════════════════════════ ❧  ════════════════════════════


“In This is How I’d Love You, Hazel Woods explores the enduring nature of an improbable love born of words, washed in tragedy, and sustained despite impossible circumstances. With prose as immediate and evocative as a painting, Woods accomplishes the magic of rendering sorrow into hope and fear into courage. It is as idealistic a tale as it is clear-sighted, a brilliant alchemy few novels achieve. Readers, prepare to melt”
— Robin Oliveria, author of My Name is Mary Sutter

Hazel Woods has written a beautiful historical novel that does justice to the atrocities that were suffered during World War I. This Is How I'd Love You also reminds us that when we truly love someone we look past their flaws and faults and love them anyway.
- Melissa at The Book Binder's Daughter

This Is How I’d Love You is a sweet, transporting story of unexpected and perhaps undeserved love (but isn’t that the best kind?), and as a great read for fans of historical romance
- Hallie Szott at Book by Book

Hazel Woods lives in New Mexico with her husband and two children.

I'm always intrigued by epistolary fiction - or fiction driven by letters, even if they're not the main narrative. I'd love to read this!

Colleen Turner said...

I am really excited to read this book! I couldn't squeeze it in to read during the tour but I'm still very excited to do so as soon as possible. Thanks for the chance to win a copy and for the wonderful review!

I think the cover is so beautiful. I didn't have the chance to get on this tour because of my schedule, but the book looks good!

KAS said...

I have been looking forward to this novel's release and am grateful for this opportunity to win my own copy -- thank you! It seems like a wonderful historical fiction narrative with a serious romantic story line at the center that I find palatable as a non-romance reader. Cheers! --Kara
