Free book (nook/Kindle/Christian Book) The Unfinished Gift [Christian Fiction]

The Unfinished Gift: A Novel by Dan Walsh, is another one of those heartwarming festive holiday redemption tales, free courtesy of Christian publisher Baker's Revell imprint.

Currently free @ B&N, Sony (available to Canadians), and Christian Book (available worldwide).

The other previous Revell Xmas-themed freebies all disappeared within a day or so, so you'd better grab this as quickly as you see it (especially if you're a Sony person, since I think they switchover their freebies somewhere around 8pm Pacific Time).

And it would be appreciated if people who manage to spot it elsewhere would post an update so others could grab it from their preferred stores, too.

Description
Can a gift from the past mend a broken heart?

Ian Collins is an old man without his son. Patrick Collins is a young boy without his father. On his Christmas list are only three items. He wants the army to find his father. He wants to leave his grandfather's house. And he wants the dusty wooden soldier in Grandfather's attic--the one he is forbidden to touch.

Set at Christmastime in 1943, The Unfinished Gift is the engaging story of a family in need of forgiveness. With simple grace, it reminds us of the small things that affect powerful change in our hearts--a young boy's prayers, a shoe box of love letters, and even a half-carved soldier, long forgotten. This nostalgic story of reconciliation will touch your heart.

Odd, it shows as free at Sony and B&N, but when I attempt to buy it, it's $9.39 and $10.26 respectively. Still free at Christianbooks, though.

That just means it's expired now at those stores. Sony and B&N both have a habit of continuing to show a free price, but changing to a pay-price on books that are no longer free for several hours after the promo has expired.

Thankfully, with the new B&N purchase-confirm even on freebie systems (and this is why one should always have the cart option set for Sony), it's harder to get "caught" and dinged for the purchase price of a supposed no-longer-freebie.

I've actually had a couple of freebies just go thru, even after their change, so apparently they run a server farm that isn't always up to date even on that.

They didn't have to go so overboard, though - a very, very simple change would have fixed their issue (and is the ONLY method that should be used for a non-cart web environment, as well as with other web based database updates, which their programmers would have known, if they employed any that actually pursued CS beyond picking it up from books or hacking in high school).
