Breaking News: Winner of the $10 Amazon Email Gift Card is LeAnn. Congrats, LeAnn! Email me!

Periodically, I’ve been trying something new on the blog: a blog hop, which I’m calling Come to the Table.

When I started this blog link up, I was hoping to create a place where blogs would receive more visibility. I encouraged you to visit your link up neighbors and make new friends. But visiting around to your neighbors takes time.

So I’m now trying a ONCE A MONTH hop. I’ll post the hop at the end of the month, and we can all link up our favorite posts. (I will try this at the end of November. If no one is interested, I’ll move on to something else!)

 

Why call it Come to the Table? Because one of my favorite things is to gather around a cozy kitchen table with a group of friends–with a mug of coffee in hand, of course–and share whatever is on our hearts.

What is a blog hop? An event where bloggers link up their posts and share with readers whatever is on their hearts.

Giveaway Prize: I’m giving away a $10 Amazon Email Gift Card to one participant. You are entered when you link up and each time you comment on a post! Giveaway ends next Friday, December 7th.

What kind of posts will bloggers link here? I invite bloggers to link their favorite post (or posts) from the last month . . .

  • Thoughts on how God has been working in your life
  • A post about your family
  • A review of a great book you’ve read
  • A giveaway we’d be interested in
  • A word about something wonderful that just happened to you
  • A post about a disappointment or heartache
  • Thoughts on Scripture
  • A list of some of your favorite things

So with all those choices, readers will find a little bit of everything at this blog hop. Bloggers, link what you will—as long as it is Inspirational or Family Friendly.

UPDATE: My winners from the contest are Juju at Tales of Whimsy and Anita Yancey! Congrats, ladies! I’ll be emailing you soon 🙂

Congrats to Laura Hilton, who won my December Amazon Gift Card Giveaway! (She commented on this post.)

If you entered the contest from several weeks back but didn’t win, don’t despair. I have another giveaway post going up tonight—with lots more chances to win!

So stop back in during the next few days to join the fun here at Doorkeeper.

Happy New Year!

You know that lucky woman who gets to sneak away with a book while everyone else in the world is consumed with busyness? Maybe she relaxes in the tub or on the beach or on a deck overlooking a beautiful view. For a little while, she is removed from her own time and place and caught up in a world of dashing heroes, innocent maidens, romance, danger, intrigue . . .

Well, if that woman ever gets to be you, the experience will not be complete unless you have a Laura Frantz book in your hands!

When I began to write this review of Laura’s latest book, The Colonel’s Lady, the phrase that kept coming back to my mind was swept away.

With the first longing look between beautiful Roxana Rowan and dazzling Colonel Cassius McLinn, this novel immersed me in the period and feel of Fort Endeavor in the Kentucke Territory of 1779.

Our heroine, Roxie, is a lady of genteel birth, who travels to the fort with a ragtag group of fallen women, yet retains her innocence. She experiences the harsh realities of life and death as American soldiers wage war against both British and Indian warriors, yet retains her optimism. While others around her fall prey to the lax morals of the frontier culture, she retains her purity. And though she sometimes runs ahead of God and questions His ways, she retains her faith.

Roxana’s world is populated by colorful characters. Among my favorites were Bella, the outspoken washerwoman who takes it upon herself to become Roxie’s ladies’ maid, mentor, and unofficial life coach, and Abby, the tiny sprite of a girl who steals the hearts of everyone in the camp without uttering a word.

This story played in my mind like a lovely old movie. (from Drums Along the Mohawk)

And as for Roxana’s love interest, Colonel McLinn is an old-fashioned, hard-riding, tender with children, outspoken to the point of rudeness, angst-ridden enough to know he needs the love of a good woman, brave and upright hero.

There are just too many great scenes to mention—Roxie charming the Indian warriors, Cass and Roxie’s first dance, Cass and the Indian princess, a romantic cribbage game, and much, much more.

Sounds like your cup of tea? Then follow this link to purchase this sweeping saga for yourself. As soon as it arrives, clear your calendar, fix that cup of tea, and make yourself comfortable (see above for location suggestions).  You’re about to embark on a wonderful trip!

Meet the author: Only a special writer could find it within themselves to consistently create such sweet heroines. Laura Frantz is one of the kindest authors I’ve “met” on the internet. Follow this link to her website and get to know her better. You’ll see where her incredible stories come from.

Laura’s first book, The Frontiersman’s Daughter, is a free download for Kindle right now. It’s a lovely story with a brave, beautiful heroine and a hero who reminds me of Neil MacNeill from ChristyYou can download it here.

Giveaway: This post is the first August Giveaway Post! I’m giving away a $10 Amazon Gift Card at the end of the month. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post. There will be other designated giveaway posts in the coming days to increase your chances of winning. How fun is that?!

***The Colonel’s Lady is available August 2011 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group. Thanks to the good folks at Revell for providing a copy of this beautiful book for me to review!
