What To Read While You Wait for Downton Abbey?

Right now a unique debut novel, Born of Persuasion is releasing from Tyndale House Publishers! And already its been embraced by Downton Abbey lovers, launching it onto Amazon bestseller lists twice before it even released. A blurb from the book!


The year is 1838, and seventeen-year-old Julia Elliston’s position has never been more fragile. Orphaned and unmarried in a time when women are legal property of their fathers, husbands, and guardians, she finds herself at the mercy of an anonymous guardian who plans to establish her as a servant in far-off Scotland.

With two months to devise a better plan, Julia’s first choice to marry her childhood sweetheart is denied. But when a titled dowager offers to introduce Julia into society, a realm of possibilities opens. However, treachery and deception are as much a part of Victorian society as titles and decorum, and Julia quickly discovers her present is deeply entangled with her mother’s mysterious past. Before she knows what’s happening, Julia finds herself a pawn in a deadly game between two of the country’s most powerful men. With no laws to protect her, she must unravel the secrets on her own. But sometimes truth is elusive and knowledge is deadly.

The release of your new book and all the fun things you've chosen to represent this era, in this giveaway has been such fun, Jessica. (Almost called you Elizabeth!)

I'm laughig with you about your desire to live during a former time period.
Especially, giving up epidurals! :) I can think of a few other things I wouldn't want to give up, too....

Do you realze if you did live during your favorite time period, you wouldn't be writing about it? And you'd have a lot of unhappy campers. (Something else you'd never experience, camping) :) Glad you're with us today!

Blessings, Diane
