Winner Announcement!

When Christine Blevins recently guest posted for us on the theme of Why I Love Revolutions, she was gracious enough to include a giveaway of her latest release The Tory Widow. Today, we announce the winner of the giveaway. First, here's the book blurb from Amazon.

On a bright May day in New York City, Anne Peabody receives an unexpected kiss from a stranger. Bringing news of the repeal of the Stamp Act, Jack Hampton, a member of the Sons of Liberty, abruptly sweeps Anne into his arms, kisses her—and then leaves her to her fate of an arranged marriage…

1775: Nearly ten years have passed and Anne, now the Widow Merrick, continues her late husband’s business printing Tory propaganda, not because she believes in the cause, but because she needs the money to survive. When her shop is ransacked by the Sons of Liberty, Anne once again comes face to face with Jack and finds herself drawn to the ardent patriot and his rebel cause.

As shots ring out at Lexington and war erupts, Anne is faced with a life-altering decision: sit back and watch her world torn apart, or stand and fight for both her country’s independence and her own.

Without further ado, I am pleased to announce that the winner of this book and a Revolutionary America survival kit (lavender water and a hankie)is:

Congrats to you Ladydoc. If you could please contact us via email to historical.tapestry @ with your mailing address details.


  1. I am thrilled to win this book!

    I've been surrounded by the Revolutionary War all my life- I live in Philadelphia and so much of it is still here and a part of daily life in our city.

    Thanks SOOO much!!

  2. I have a problem!

    I have tried to email you from two different email accounts and they will, neither of them, allow me to email to the address I have. I don't understand, I've never gotten this error message before, but I just cannot email to you.

    Any ideas? SOOOO sorry to be a problem!
