Change of Altitude by Anita Shreve GIVEAWAY!

Anita Shreve worked in Kenya as a journalist early in her career. She returns to that country in her latest, the story of a photojournalist and her doctor husband, whose temporary relocation abroad goes sour. The year-long research trip is an opportunity for Patrick, but leaves Margaret floundering in colonialist culture shock, feeling like an actor in a play someone British had written for a previous generation. When a climbing trip to Mt. Kenya goes fatally wrong, Margaret's role in the tragedy drives a quiet wedge between the couple. Compounding those stressors are multiple robberies and adulterous temptations, as well as Margaret's freelance work for a controversial newspaper.
This book is on my "to read" shelf which is really an attractive stack of books by my bed. It is two and half books away from being read. If you would like to try and beat me to it, let me know by providing a comment with your email address.

This looks like a great chick book (yes, I did just say that) and perfect for a book group. In fact, I'll give you a heads up and give you a link to the reader's guide. Here it is.

Contest ends June 28, 2010
Open to U.S. and Canada residents
No P.O. Boxes

Tell me you adore me.

Thank you Valerie from Hatchette Book Groups for sponsoring this giveaway.
