Free Kindle Downloads - 6/9

Sorry I missed last week! We were off at a pre-deployment event for Mark's unit. It is heartbreaking to see all of the children and spouses that will be separated for over a year. I hate it and I get angry thinking of it, so I try not to dwell for long. Our youngest is having a hard enough time with her dad TDY and she gets to see him every other week or so. Today she told me that she misses her daddy and needs him. I don't know how I am going to do this.

Here are the free reads for this week:
(Reminder - they were free as of posting, but always double check before downloading as it changes often!)

No Place for a Lady (Heart of the West Series, Book 1)
