Hi friends! HAPPY EASTER!
And now I must apologize! I completely forgot about the Lizzie Kate giveaway because of the Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop on Friday. I did not realize they would end up on the same day. I had three people enter their names for the LK Flip It Blocks With Charm April pattern (no charm). I wrote down all three names, folded the strips of paper, shook them up in my hand and had Henry choose! That is right! Henry. He sniffed and with his nose he pushed..... MANUELA right out of my hand. So Manuela, I have your address and I will mail this pattern to you my friend!😊
Rhys Bowen is one of my favorite authors. This was a very good novel. I just thoroughly enjoyed it!
As the Great War continues to take its toll, headstrong twenty-one-year-old Emily Bryce is determined to contribute to the war effort. She is convinced by a cheeky and handsome Australian pilot that she can do more, and it is not long before she falls in love with him and accepts his proposal of marriage. When he is sent back to the front, Emily volunteers as a “land girl,” tending to the neglected grounds of a large Devonshire estate. It’s here that Emily discovers the long-forgotten journals of a medicine woman who devoted her life to her herbal garden. The journals inspire Emily, and in the wake of devastating news, they are her saving grace. Emily’s lover has not only died a hero but has left her terrified—and with child. Since no one knows that Emily was never married, she adopts the charade of a war widow. As Emily learns more about the volatile power of healing with herbs, the found journals will bring her to the brink of disaster, but may open a path to her destiny.
“O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?” The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:55-57
