Christmastide on Bald Head Island ♦ Rose McCauley ♦ Giveaway

Welcome to Whispers in Purple, dear readers. 'Tis the Season, right? Christmas is in the air! The bell-ringers are out; grocery store parking lots are full of fragrant evergeen trees ready to be taken home and decorated; some of us are already listening to Christmas music; and others, like our guest author today, are sharing their seasonal books and writings for your reading pleasure.

So please join me in greeting author Rose Allen McCauley and her brand new release, Christmastied on Bald Head Island, our second—but not last!—Christmas feature of the month. Oh, yeah . . . there's a giveaway included, as well. Just scroll down for the details

Four generations of women find second chances at love on Bald Head Island.

Literature weaves its way through the hearts of the Jordan family women. Matriarch, Grace Jordan, has a particular affinity for William Shakespeare. Just as his play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, spins a tale of the planning of one wedding but ends with three ceremonies, Grace and her two daughters, Rosalind and Miranda, discover rekindled love while planning Rosalind's daughter, Jane Anne's Christmas wedding. 

In a twist of fate, ceremony plans change. However, just like Elizabeth Bennett and Anne Shirley from Jane Austen and Lucy Montgomery's respective classic tales, all four Jordan women discover what—and who—will make them truly happy.
