Tabby's New Box

The moment this great big box came in the mail was opened and unpacked of Amazon Subscribe and Save groceries Tabby rushed right inside and made it her own private playhouse. My elderly father wants to throw it away, it is already taking up space alongside Tabby's cat wagon, pirate ship, and two toy boxes, but every time he tries she runs back inside and lays down. It's a battle of wills!

Giveaway: Win a Signed Copy of Mary & Elizabeth by Emily Purdy

Two sisters: united by blood, divided by the crown…

They shared childhood memories and grown-up dreams… Mary was England's precious jewel, the surviving child of the tumultuous relationship between Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon. However, when Henry fell passionately in love with the dark-eyed Anne Boleyn, he cast his wife and daughter aside.

Henry and Anne's union sees the birth of Elizabeth. Mary is soon declared a bastard, stripped of all royal privileges, performing the lowliest tasks. But, there is something about Elizabeth. And Mary soon grows to love her like a sister. After the passage of three years, and Anne Boleyn's execution, Henry can no longer bear the sight of his female heir. With the birth of a son, Edward, both Mary and Elizabeth seem destined for oblivion.

But as history will show, fate had something far more elaborate in store…

Mary and Elizabeth is an unforgettable story of a powerful love affair that changed the course of history, perfect for fans of The Tudors and Philippa Gregory.

Enter to win a signed copy of the British edition of my novel Mary & Elizabeth by Emily Purdy (The Tudor Throne by Brandy Purdy in the USA) by leaving a comment, U.S. residents only, please include your contact info. Tabby will pick a winner on June 23rd.
