Only Uni by Camy Tang & Giveaway

Trish Sakai's reputation for foolish and flirtatious behaviour firmly places her under the watchful eyes of her female cousins, Lex, Venus and Jenn, who are ready to pounce. Finally Trish begins to realise that her wild ways are not bringing her joy and determines to curb her behaviour by complying with her First and Second Corinthian rules:~

1. Stop looking at every man as potential date material;

2. Share her faith with others at every opportunity; and

3. Rely only on God during times of hardship.


Trish just hadn't counted on how hard it would be to change her ways, rebuff handsome young men especially when she receives unexpected and life changing news.


Camy Tang has done it again! Only Uni is a brilliant story of one woman attempting to turn her life around and struggling with the effort and failures she must overcome. Trish was the most unlovable character in Sushi for One?, selfish and conceited, yet Camy has deftly changed the reader's perception of Trish by revealing her vulnerabilities without watering down her more strident qualities. The men vying for her attention, Kazuo and co-worker Spenser, are fully drawn and their appeal to Trish, despite their differences, authentically described. Camy's stories have a bit of everything, wit, humour, depth, girlfriends, faith, conflict, romance and difficult relatives! The consequences of Trish's actions provide a serious and pertinent message that is sensitively handled. If Camy continues her current trend of improving with each story, Venus' story, Single Sashimi, releasing in September from Zondervan, will be unmissable.

I have a giveaway of this great book, open to ALL my readers. To enter:~

My favourite female character would have to be Elizabeth from Finders Keepers by Catherine Palmer. She is passionate, feminine and determined. Please enter me in the draw.

I would have to say Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice. She is a young woman who enjoys life, loves her family but she stands up for herself.

I can't go past Anne of Green Gables! She is so loveable, has some great quotes, gets into all kinds of difficulties of her own making, but turns out to be a kind and loving adult. Thanks Rel

Hello, My choice is Jane Austen. She had a very close knit family who looked out for each other. She was not afraid to speak out/write about the society she lived in. Her use of realism, social commentary and free indirect speech were masterful. Jane seemed to get along with most people and had morals. Thanks,Cindi

This book sounds great, and it sounds like it is a book I can def. relate to....my name is Liz and just 1 fav. female?!?! :) My favorite is Laura Ingallas Wilder--growing up I always could turn to those pages and get hope and inspiration. As an adult I have picked up one of her books and felt a renewed sense of courage and of hope!

My choice would have to be Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice. I admire her strength of charcter.

Of recent reads, I enjoyed Katie, the main character from Lisa Wingate's Tending Roses. She's a young mom who's suddenly thrust into also taking care of her aging grandmother, and it's a pleasure to read about her relationships with her family and how they're strengthened by what happens.

I'd love to put my name in for this one too please.

My favourite female character is... let me think a min...

OK, I have it...but it shows my age! Elizabeth Johnston from the 'Elizabeth Gail' series by Hilda Stahl. As to why? Well, that's the books I started with and Elizabeth became my good buddy through a great deal of my childhood years. But I like HER because she's a gutsy girl who doesn't allow her circumstances to dictate who she will be in the future. She allows God to mold her into the woman He wants her to be.

One of my favorite female character's is Haddasah in Francine Rivers 'Mark of the Lion' series. Her faith and trust in God is so strong it just grabs a hold of you and keeps you reading to the end. You can not go untouched after reading her story.
Thanks for the chance to win Camy's book...I can't wait to read it!

Its hard to think of one only, but a favourite would be Jodi Baxter from the Yada Yada series. She is so real and down to earth in her thoughts, responses and actions to things, I can relate. Thanks for the chance to win this book Rel!

I can't say I really have a favourite character, I just like reading books and enjoy a particular series etc because I like the storyline more so than a particular character. Wendyb

Don't know that I have a favorite female character. It's probably the heroine of whatever book I'm reading at the time.

I'd love to read this one. Please enter me in the drawing. Thanks!
