There’s almost nothing better than curling up with a good book on a chilly day, especially with one of Diana Cosby’s romantic suspense novels set in medieval Scotland. But one thing even better is building a warm, safe, and secure Habitat house for a deserving family. It gives families more than just a home; it provides a foundation on which to start their future and build their dreams.
Diana’s readers are working to build such a house. As readers send contributions to Habitat for Humanity of Grayson County, watch the bookshelf fill with every donation. The goal is to fund an entire home – $55,000, in order to start construction on a new house of dreams. Send your donation via PayPal using the Donate button below or donate funds the old-fashioned way—a check works just fine!
