Weekly Windup: Happy Birthday to Us!


It's August... That means it is Stitches Thru Time's 2nd Birthday this month! We're excited to celebrate with all of you, so we're throwing a month long Birthday Bash. We'll have special guests, presents, goodies and lots of birthday fun. You're officially invited, so we hope you'll join us, and bring a friend.


Along with our Weekly Giveaway, we'll have these three drawings at the end of the month, so be sure to leave LOTS of comments to get your name in the hat. We'll also have some surprise giveaways, so be sure to check in often.  

 

This Week's Giveaway is:

The Queen's Handmaid by Tracy L. Higley


A jealous Egyptian queen. A lascivious Galilean governor. A beautiful servant girl. Theirs is a story of prophecy, self-discovery, and revelation.
The year is 39 BC. All of Alexandria awaits the arrival of Herod, the Galilean governor with his eye on the Judean kingship. The handmaid of Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, receives a troubling visitfrom her aging mentor.
An orphan since birth, Lydia lives in the palace at the demand of Cleopatra and her royal child, the son of Julius Caesar. But Lydia has a growing problem on her hands: her beauty is becoming a liability to the aging queen, and the visiting Herod’s undisguised interest only makes matters worse.
When Lydia’s mentor is murdered, the handmaid inherits a daunting task. An ancient set of sealed scrolls, the secret writings of the prophet Daniel, must be returned to Jerusalem—before those who killed her mentor destroy the scrolls as well. The future of the Israelites depends on it. So Lydia leaves the palace to serve as lady’s maid to Herod’s wife in the Holy City.
