And the winner is...

Okay, I'm about to do the big drawing to see who will be the lucky winner of a signed copy of Finding Grace.  Drum roll please...
And the winner is...

Kate Harvey!

Kate has a beautiful, insightful, and entertaining blog called "Something Ivory"--if you haven't checked it out yet, you should.  Kate, I know your address, so the book will be in the mail ASAP.

Thanks to everyone who decided play along.  Most of you are people I know very well (or I'm related to), and you've been loyal followers.  Thank you!  There were also two comments from new visitors to "String of Pearls."  One was from a creative neighbor down the street who owns a booming home decor business called Domicil Design, if you'd like to check out her site (and visit her Etsy store).  And the other was from M.R. Zapp, who has a fascinating and articulate blog called "Regency Catholic."  In it, she explores the history of Catholics during England's Regency period (Jane Austen fans, you must check out this site!).

Thanks again, everyone!  This was fun.  I love playing Santa!


  1. Wow, thanks Mrs. Pearl! I'm honored :) And sort of surprised I won, considering how many comments you received!

    I have several people in mind who I know will love your book, so I'm excited to have this extra copy to give as a gift.

    Keep your eyes peeled for a Finger Lakes Feast giveaway soon :)

    1. Kate, your book will be in the mail today! Thanks for your support!

    1. Ha ha! You're not really the sort of reader I targeted, so I would be curious to get your take on it.

  3. Congratulations Kate, I'm bummed!! LOL Laura, if you come up this way at Christmastime could you bring an extra copy and I will buy it? I do want an extra to have on hand. Thanks. Love you
