Melanie Morey Jeschke (pronounced jes-key), a native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, grew up in Richmond, Virginia, and graduated from University of Virginia as a Phi Beta Kappa with an Honors degree in English Literature and a minor in European and English History.

A free-lance travel writer, Melanie contributed the Oxford chapter to the Rick Steves’ England 2006 guidebook. She is a member of the Capital Christian Writers  and Christian Fiction Writers as well as three book clubs, and taught high-school English before home-schooling most of her nine children. Melanie lectures on Lewis and Tolkien, Oxford, and writing, and gives inspirational talks to all manner of groups, including university classes, women’s clubs, young professionals, teens, and school children.

A fourth generation pastor’s wife (her father Dr. Earl Morey is a retired Presbyterian minister), Melanie resides in the Greater Washington, D.C. area  with her children and husband Bill Jeschke, a soccer coach and the Senior Pastor of The King’s Chapel, an non-denominational Christian church in Fairfax, Virginia.



ABOUT THE BOOK

Jillian Dare leaves her Shenandoah Valley foster home behind and strikes out on her own as a nanny at a large country estate in northern Virginia. She is delighted with the beauty of her new home, the affection of her young charge Cadence Remington, and the opportunity for frequent travel to the Remington castle in England.

She is less certain about her feelings for her handsome but moody employer, Ethan. In spite of herself, Jillian realizes she is falling for her boss. But how can a humble girl ever hope to win a wealthy man of the world? And what dark secrets from the past is he hiding? This contemporary story, inspired by the well-loved classic Jane Eyre, will capture readers' hearts.

I am an intern for A Larry Ross Communications, and have been referred to your blog as a popular internet opinion site. ALRC is a full-service media and public relations agency focusing on bridging the gap between faith and culture. We would love to include you on our list of bloggers to receive information about available book review copies so you could read and review them for your website.

If you are interested in being included in our list of bloggers for book reviews, we are currently representing Joni Lamb, author of “Surrender All,” in which she shares the message of discovering the amazing journey God intended and fashioned for each of us. Through simply offering control to the One who created us, we can learn the peace that comes through trusting God.

Joni Lamb is co-founder and vice president, along with her husband, President and CEO Marcus Lamb, of Daystar Television Network, the fastest growing Christian network in the world. She is executive producer and host of “JONI,” a talk show addressing relevant Godly issues for today’s complex problems, and co-hosts “Celebration” with Marcus. She released her debut book, “Surrender All,” in late 2008. In addition, she is full-time wife to Marcus and mom to three children, which she considers her foremost and greatest accomplishment.

We would like to send you a free copy of “Surrender All” in return for a 300-word, honest review of the book. If possible, we request this review be posted between June 29-July 10.
