Borrow A Kindle Book: Silent Tears

Silent Tears Step through the doors of a Chinese orphanage. When Kay Bratt’s husband accepted a promotion that required him and his family to relocate to China, Kay took the opportunity to fulfill her dream of living a meaningful life. She had no idea of the ways her life would change. Her volunteer work in the orphanage opened her eyes to the desperate need and horrifying neglect suffered by China’s abandoned children. It became her mission to brighten the lives of these little ones and give them hope.

I just finished reading this last night, and found myself processing and digesting a whole new batch of realities. It’s a powerful book.

Here’s the deal on borrowing the book. Amazon allows some Kindle books to be lent out. It’s a one time thing and the loan lasts for fourteen days. So, if you’ll have time to read a 333 page book in the next fourteen days, please enter! You don’t have to own a Kindle in order to read the book. Amazon offers a free “app” you can download to your computer. I have it on my computer and it works fine. Follow the links to get the kindle reader for Windows 7, XP, & Vista, Windows 8, or Mac.

Most giveaways are done by random draw, but I’m going to mix it up a bit. I want this book to go to someone who cares about reading it and will learn from it. So, leave a comment telling me why you want to read Silent Tears, and I’ll loan the book to whoever gives the most convincing reason (or at least the reason I find most convincing). I apologize I can’t lend the book to all of you, but don’t give up if I don’t lend you this one. I hope to do this again!

The opportunity to enter this giveaway ends on March 25th.

Don’t forget to leave a comment explaining why you want to read this book. Please tell your friends about this giveaway!

  1. ooh! A book! =)
    I would love to read this book because I would really like to find out more about orphans and what goes on in a day in their life.
    Ha, the rest probably have more convincing reasons. =) But I have to say that’s my real honest reason. =)

  2. I would love to read this book because I really want to know more about orphans and what’s it’s like to be one. I want to know how it would feel to step through the doors of an orphanage and see the suffering in another person’s life and be able to help. I think that’s the only reason, other than my wanting to know ANYTHING about orphans. 🙂

    I would like to read Silent Tears because our family is right now in the process of adoption an eight year old girl from china! You can read about our process at

  4. I would love to read this book because I want to basically step into the lives of orphans. I want to see their needs, their pain, and I want to know how to help them. I especially want to know about orphans in China because my brother is sponsering a boy named Fu living there through Holt International. And I haven’t had any really good Kindle books for a long time, which will be necessary on the long car trip I’m going on! 🙂
