August Give Away!


When I won the book Astrid & Veronika, (Andrea from Under a Blue Moon) it was suggested that I should pass it along in a give away, which was what Andrea had done when she won the book from 'V' of Turkeyfeathers.typepad.com. I was thrilled with that idea.

The setting of this novel is current day Sweden, however there are several reference to traditional Swedish customs, including Swedish Pea Soup; something I grew up on. Included with the book, is my Grandmothers recipe for Swedish Pea Soup, the special peas to make this soup, 2 Oneida Soup spoons and a small silver plated platter to serve French Bread on...which goes nicely with this soup!

Please leave a response by 15 August if you would like your name to be entered into this drawing!
