Book Preview ~ In the Shadow of Daneli

In the Shadow of Daneli, by Tracie Peterson and Kimberly Woodhouse
Cassidy Ivanoff and her father, John, work at the new and prestigious Curry Hotel outside Mt. McKinley. While John will be expedition and wilderness exploration guide for the wealthy tourists, Cassidy has signed on as a cook's assistant. Both are busy as the hotel prepares to welcome the president of the United States on his way to drive in the golden spike to officially complete the railroad.

Allan Brennan travels to the Curry Hotel to be an apprentice of a seasoned Alaska mountain guide. Ever since his father's death climbing Mt. McKinley, he's worked to earn enough money to make the trek to the Alaska territory himself. His father's partner blames their guide for the death of his father, but Allan wants to find the truth for himself. He finds an unlikely ally in Cassidy, and as the two begin to look into the mystery, they suddenly find that things are much less clear, and much more dangerous, than either could ever imagine.

Wine Cork Crafts ~ Ornaments

I like to collect wine corks from favorite wines that we try.
I also like to make wine cork crafts. So far, I've made a wine cork wreath and these sweet ornaments we made a few years ago.
  
Materials needed: wine corks, medium-sized buttons, craft wire, rafia, hot glue, needle-nosed pliers, and a variety of beads and charms.

To begin, we glued buttons to the top and bottom of each cork, making sure not to place glue in the center. Then we curved a one-inch piece of wire with our pliers and stuck it into the button holes at the top of each cork to make the hanger. We did the same to the bottom, creating a ring for our pendants to hang on. 

 
To make the pendants, we used a 1-3 inch piece of wire and strung it with beads and charms, then hooked the top to the bottom ring on the cork.  
The project was a bit time consuming, but it was a fun for us to do one afternoon as we prepared for Christmas! Do you enjoy making wine cork crafts?

Book Preview ~ The Mark of the King

The Mark of the King, by Jocelyn Green

After being imprisoned and branded for the death of her client, twenty-five-year-old midwife Julianne Chevalier trades her life sentence for exile to the fledgling 1720s French colony of Louisiana, where she hopes to be reunited with her brother, serving there as a soldier. To make the journey, though, women must be married, and Julianne is forced to wed a fellow convict.

When they arrive in New Orleans, there is no news of Benjamin, Julianne's brother, and searching for answers proves dangerous. What is behind the mystery, and does military officer Marc-Paul Girard know more than he is letting on?

With her dreams of a new life shattered, Julianne must find her way in this dangerous, rugged land, despite never being able to escape the king's mark on her shoulder that brands her a criminal beyond redemption. Buy the book HERE.
