  1. Thanks for featuring Darcy's Hope on RLF today : )

    Did anyone learn anything about WW1 in school besides 'trench foot' or 'trench warfare'? I sure didn't, but I LOVED researching for this novel! I learned about fascinating people who worked together for a common cause amidst horrendous circumstances. Wrapped in a delicious romance, Darcy's Hope shows that even in the ugliest of circumstances beauty can rise from the ashes.

    If you loved Downton Abbey or Pride & Prejudice I think you'll love this too! (Check out the reviews!)

  2. So nice to have you on RLF. :) I shared your post on Twitter, Facebook, G+, and Pinterest.
