#Giveaway: Grains of Truth - Lydia Crichton

As a hotbed of political and cultural upheaval, Egypt has become a dangerous place to live, especially for a woman. A world traveler and adventurer, Lydia Crichton married her personal experiences and love for Egypt's golden past with an intimate look at the Middle Eastern conflict. 

Set in the Bay Area and Egypt, GRAINS OF TRUTH is a pulse-pounding page turner that stars spunky heroine, Julia Grant, a devout pacifist, who is manipulated by U.S. Intelligence to take part in a covert mission in Egypt to help foil a major terrorist plot. But when Julia's contacts die along the Nile, she slowly realizes that she has become the center of a deadly game, spun by passion, intrigue, and the clashing of radically diverse cultures and beliefs, including her own.


Some recent praise for GRAINS OF TRUTH...

"GRAINS OF TRUTH is a taut, well-written, action packed story - an intelligent romantic thriller that never loses its focus as a high entertainment story." ––Larry Myles, Red Inkworks

"Unique characters and high drama combine in this well-written, action-packed story of counter-terrorism and espionage." –– Foreword Reviews


Author Bio: A native Texan, Lydia has traveled all over the world in her twenty-plus year career as a marketing and fundraising expert for nonprofit organizations. A trip to Egypt in 2002 turned into a life-changing odyssey, which led her to discover a passion for telling stories that entertain as they explore complex and controversial social and political issues. She currently lives in California's Napa Valley––the inspiration for a second book in the Julia Grant Series, woven around the shambles of illegal immigration in the U.S. For more information, visit: www.lydiacrichton.com.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
