I love book giveaways and wish I had a book for each one of you. Today's winner for Kaye Dacus's Ransome's Honor and Ransome's Crossing is...Ashley R.! Congratulations, Ashley! May they provide you some refreshing reading hours:) The other names will roll over to this Friday when I'll host new historical author and friend, Lorna Sielstad. Her debut historical, Making Waves, really is making waves right now. If you like history, humor, and characters who feel like friends, then Lorna is the author for you!
Another friend of mine, Carrie, is hosting a double giveaway of Courting Morrow Little and Surrender the Wind by Rita Gerlach. So please visit her site and enter for these books if you haven't read them. Thank you, Carrie!
It's Monday morning and my Washington sky is blue:) Much to do this week as the boys start school Wednesday. Prayers appreciated for both of them, especially Paul who, after being homeschooled, will begin 5th grade. He has a terrific male teacher and his class is very small - only 9 kids. And 7 of them are girls! I am a bit melancholy about it all for some reason. But it's the first time in my parenting life I'll have a quiet house from 8 to 3 every day. Think of all the writing to be done (or so I hope)!
My parents have been visiting and we've had a wonderful time. Right now they're up on Whidbey Island for a couple of days being tourists. I've actually had some time to watch a rare movie and am so smitten by it I wanted to add the trailer here. Some of you are new to the BBC drama North & South, just as I am, and have asked me about it. So take a deep breath and watch this beautiful trailer. I need not say another word:)
