A delightful romance! Tilghman skillfully captures the essence of young love and warm Christmas traditions in this holiday novella.– E. Elizabeth Watson
author of Westward BoundandThe Ladies of Scotland series
This is the lovely blurb that appears on the top of my new novella, LOVE LETTERS & GINGERBREAD, my Christmas story set in Annapolis in 1831. My story, an ode to Jane Austen’s wonderful SENSE AND SENSIBILITY, tells the story of two sisters, Patsy and Angela, as they embark on the adventure we all hope for, Love. It takes place at Christmas and celebrates some of the holiday traditions we all love: lights on a Christmas tree, the smells of cinnamon and ginger, soulful songs.
I’m so grateful for Ms. Watson for reading my manuscript before it was published and offering to provide the wonderful blurb.
E. Elizabeth Watson, who trained as an archaeologist, puts her love of history in beautiful books, many of them set in Scotland and England. If you are a fan of Outlander, either the books or the TV series, run out and get one of her lovely romances.
In the spirit of cooperative support, let me recommend her Christmas novella. (One Christmas story is never enough, you know?) CHRISTMAS WORE PLAID tells a Scottish story of love lost and love regained. Here’s how she describes her book:
When scarlet fever forced Emerson Lindt to move to England, her only consolation was Brady MacInnes’ promise of writing–letters that never arrived. When she returns to Scotland years later, Brady is adamant that he never betrayed her. And though poverty plagues Scotland and stretches Brady’s pocketbook, their love for each other flares anew. Can a Christmas miracle and the spirit of giving finally grant them a future together after they were denied marriage so long ago?
Again my thanks to a wonderful novelist for believing in my story.
And Happy Holidays.
