A Mother's Heart Knows - Blog Tour

Thanks to LitFuse Publicity for providing a free review copy of this book. No other compensation was received for this review. The opinions contained herein are my own. I was not required to write a positive review.

Mother's Day is coming up soon, and after reading A Mother's Heart Knows, I would recommend this as an appropriate way to express to your mother what she means to you. Margaret McSweeney dedicated this book to her mother, whom she credits for blessing her life and inspiring her to follow Christ.

A Mother's Heart Knows features an attractive cover complemented by an equally attractive interior. Each page includes both a black-and-white photo of a child, mother, or combination and a line or two of complementary text.

For only $9.99, you may purchase the book through Margaret's website. All royalty proceeds from this book go to WINGS (Women In Need Growing Stronger) and a student missionary scholarship fund. WINGS is a non-profit organization that provides a domestic violence shelter for women and their children in addition to transitional housing and programs.

If you would like a chance to win a signed copy of this book, just visit the blog tour schedule post and leave a comment. Margaret is also holding the the "My Favorite Mom" spa basket contest. In honor of Mother's Day, Margaret would love to hear and share your favorite story about your mother (or someone who is like a mother to you). To enter the contest go here and share your story to win one of TWO fabulously scrumptious spa baskets! She will be posting the stories (with your permission of course) on her blog.

Author's Bio: Margaret lives with her husband and two daughters in a Chicago suburb. Her book, A Mother’s Heart Knows, was published by Thomas Nelson in 2005. Go Back and Be Happy, a co-authored book, will be published by Lion Hudson in July 2008. Margaret has been featured on Greg Wheatly’s “Prime Time America,” TLN’s “Aspiring Women,” and LeSea’s “The Harvest Show.” Margaret writes freelance articles for The Daily Herald, the largest suburban Chicago newspaper. Notable interviews include Wolfgang Puck, Thomas Kinkade, Susan Branch and Dr. John Gottman. Margaret also wrote a feature article for crosswalk.com. With a master’s degree in international business, Margaret became a vice president in the corporate finance division of a New York City bank and worked there from 1986-1993. Supporting charitable causes is important to Margaret. For the past five years, she has served on the board of directors for WINGS, an organization that helps abused women and their children get a new start in life.
