The Spymistress Book - Giveaway

I have some exciting news for you!

I emailed Alison of Dutton Publicity & Marketing and she offered to send one of you a copy of the book. 
How sweet is that?

I did have time to sit down and start reading Chiaverini's new book, The Spymistress. 

Can I say, I'm LOVING IT!

Of course I'm a big fan of Chiaverini's Elm Street Quilter's books. I love the way Chiaverini writes, fleshing out her characters, giving each one life like flaws & attributes.  Chiaverini really let's you see things from the perspective of the people that lived during that time frame. She does the same in The Spymistress. I believe she gets better with each book she writes. 

Can you imagine being a woman just before the Civil War starts - being interested in politics, loving your home state & country, seeing them being torn apart and not being able to vote?

Well, Elizabeth Van Lew does something - she becomes a spy. And that's all I'm going to say for now.

So if you would like to be entered into the give-away just leave a comment.

Please note: I was not asked to do a review or to have a give-away.  

And now onto some other exciting news - well, exciting for me.
I finished the front of the stocking. 
I just have to put on the back and the little hanging tab.
I can't believe that I'll be able to finish it this week.

Happy Stitching,
