    Hi Carrie!

    Thank you; the party was fun, Carrie, and enjoyed your guests too, Julie and Joanne! Thanks. The Edwardian era ~*~ I would like linen clothing and lace up boots ~ walking in the country; sitting by the fire with a cup of tea and a good book or conversation! Kathleen ~ Lane Hill House

    Kathleen Talley says:

    I am captivated by the Edwardian and Regency eras: The language, art, style, and decor. I absolutely love those time periods and half of my personal library and e-book collection consists of similar books. Good luck and congratulations on your release! I hope for high success for you and God Bless!

    I can’t imagine living in that period. I think that there are negatives and positives. I think it would have been interesting to see the changes in history. From the roles of women, societal traditions that we challenged and that excess…shaking my head.

    Britney Adams says:

    Happy release day, Carrie! Thank you so much for the live chat! It was wonderful to hear from you, as well as Julie and Joanne! I think a good cup of tea and polite conversation would have been fun during the Edwardian era!

    Maxie Anderson says:

    Hi Carrie. I like the clothes and homes. They are so pretty. Sure would love to win your book. Had no luck on the launch party. Took me forever to just get in then almost time to be over. So don’t think I had a chance to win. I enjoyed seeing you tho. Maybe I can win on here.

    What I would like living in that era is if I was in a Title position and was able to help others and to have a nanny when I needed a break.

    Amanda M says:

    I would have loved the tea (YES! No one at home dares touch my tea stash.) and the clothes.

    Can’t wait to read this book – sounds like one I will read many times…. 🙂
