Release Day! Anchor Necklace and Devotional Giveaway!

Release Day GiveawayAnchor in the Storm officially releases today! To celebrate, I’m giving away an anchor necklace and a devotional on hope!

The theme verse for Anchor in the Storm is Heb. 6: 18-19: “We might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast.”

In the novel, Lillian wears an anchor necklace to remind herself of this truth. I’m giving away a special anchor necklace made from copper reclaimed from the restoration of the USS Constitution at the Charlestown Navy Yard, the setting of this story!

I’m also giving away a copy of 365 Devotions for Hope by my author friend, Karen Whiting. Here’s the blurb: “Daily devotional readings paired with beloved quotes and Scripture passages will lead you to the glorious hope that spills out from God’s love. Each day will bring new inspiration to rise above circumstances, focus on truth, and celebrate hope and security in your faith. Whether you are a new believer or a Christian in need of renewed hope, you will be encouraged to live out your faith with confidence as you learn more about God’s faithfulness.”

Hebrews 6:18-19, theme verse of Anchor in the Storm, by Sarah Sundin.To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment below (US & Canada only please). If you can’t leave a comment, please send me an email to enter. Giveaway ends Friday, May 6, 2016 at 10 pm, Pacific Time. I’ll announce the winner here on Saturday, May 7, 2016.

    Happy today is the release day for Anchor in the Storm. Love reading the books you write about WWII. Would be proud to wear the necklace ans certainly would tell all about you, I do it anyway. The only regret is that my friend who worked with the USO in New York during the war, isn’t here to read these books. She loved the first one but passed on before I could get the 2nd book to her. I was born in the War years and feel connected to this time. I am on my way to Barnes and Nobles, today, to see if I can purchase this new book. Best wishes for your continued writing career.

  168. Jeanie Dannheim

    Thank you, Sarah, for the opportunity to win this treasured anchor! There used to be a radio program on for which the opening music was ‘I’ve anchored my soul, to the Haven of Rest’, and I think of that as well as a gospel song that the Gaithers’ sing, and the Holy Spirit brings me rest as I think of Jesus.
    Congratulations on your new release, and the award! The first book of yours I read was ‘Through Waters Deep’; what a blessing it was! I purchased your last series on Kindle sales so I have those to read until I can get a sale copy of ‘Anchor in the Storm’ – my reading budget has become very slim in recent months. Blessings to you and your family!

  169. Rebecca Booth

    What a beautiful necklace and a great giveaway! An anchor reminds me that you need an anchor in life to bring you happiness and peace and that anchor is God!

    That is a lovely cover for Anchor in the Storm. Thank you for hosting the giveaway.

  175. Pat Moore

    Any book by Sarah Sundin is a 5 star read. I haven’t read one of her books that I didn’t leave reviews with *****. I was in a chat room & someone was telling what a terrific author she is & highly recommended her book. I called my local bookstore and they ordered it for me. I’ve been hooked on her books ever since. Now they know to order her books by author’s name. I think I’ve read most of her books and can’t wait for this newest one. Even better if I won an autographed copy of it. Her books are definitely keepers. Would love to win the anchor necklace but being able to read the book is even better. My husband was in the navy too. God bless & keep your stories coming.

  176. Rose

    Congratulations! Love the necklace. Thank you

  177. Claudia

    Yes! It’s release day! I’ve been looking forward to this one. I love your books and I love Boston–it’s an incredible city!

    I love your stories Sarah. I’ve read ALL of your books and love the themes of hope, self-growth, faith and redemption. The way that your characters respond to the challenges/hardships in their lives inspires me to respond in the same way to my own. And the self growth that takes place in each of your characters from the beginning of the story to the end, encourages me to confront my own flaws and fears..and of course look to the Lord for EVERYTHING! “Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you”

  193. Virginia

    I loved the first book in the series. Looking forward to the second!

    I received my pre-ordered book yesterday!! Love your WW2 books! I also share them with my mother. She was one of the Rosie the riveter WOMEN that went to work. Originally from Wisc, she took a train to Seattle Washington and worked at Boeing aircraft working on B19 & B29 bombers. Then She was at the Pentagon Washington DC with highest security rating when war was over and had to stay secured until President announced WW2 was over. Your books are fantastic!! Can’t wait until I read this one. Would love either book or necklace.

  231. Leanne Watkins

    I love the title of your new book Anchor in the Storm. Christ is our anchor. and One whom we should rely on when the storm hits. I love how you actually travel to the places you write about in your books to make them as authentic as possible. Thank you for your good Christian books.

  249. Alexandra Thomson

    I first heard of your books from goodreads and knew right away I had to read them! I’ve been so interested in ww2 history ever since I could remember because of my grandma (she was in radar back in Scotland and Wales) and reading these books in a weird way always bring me back to my grandma. To wear a necklace that was actually part of real life Ww2 history would just be amazing.

    I just got anchor in the storm in the mail today and I truly can’t wait to read it. Love your work and love the idea of this contest! 🙂

  250. April

    This is such a great giveaway! The necklace is lovely and will be treasured by whomever wins it I’m sure! I can’t wait to read you latest book. I’m a new reader of your work, but I am hooked! I was able to read the first book in your new series and can’t wait to read this one! The devotional sounds like it will be very helpful!
    Keep up the great writing! 🙂

  251. Traci
