What do a Jamaican sugar cane plantation, an 18th century lord claiming a bride he's only seen once, and a slave-emancipating pirate have in common?Join me for tomorrow's Thursday Thirteen for my review of Amy Ruttan's 'Fox's Bride' to find out.
Aren't you glad you didn't live in the days of slaves? I know I am.Happy WW.TM
Is that a modern, real, pirate ship? The postcard was fascinating. Great post.
Will stay tuned....Meanwhile, back at the plantation....I'm glad I'm not back at the plantation. God bles, friend!
Beautiful! I'd love to get to know Jamaica one day...Here is my WW post for this week. Happy WW day!
Very nice shots. Happy Wordless Wednesday!
I love the old postcards. They're very cool. I haven't had a chance to read Amy's book yet. I'm looking forward to it.
I know, I know!! ROFL!!Then I get the smack, of course I know. I spent hours researching the blasted thing.I actually used that old postcard as a visual.It's on one of my research books about plantations.And now I know WAY too much about the 18th Century.Ok, gonna say it again, really nervous about tomorrow.
Amy - (poking you with my sword, moving you farther along the plank)Don't worry, Secret Twin!
See I was rambling. I only ramble when I'm nervous.I get all rambly, hence why I'm probably going to alienate tons of people when they meet me face to face at Nationals. A/ I'll say nothing cause I'm incredibly shy B/ I'll ramble like a fool and they'll cast me aside. *sniff sniff*I'm really shy. LOL!
beautiful graphics. i thought it was great howthe 'pirates of the carribean' movies had crewmembers of african descent. never spelled out but it suggested (to me, at least)that they'd escaped servitude and now chose to go a-pirating.
Mmmm... pirates!! Always made great bodice rippers. ;)
I just love the oJulia.
Love your passion, Julia. Isn't it incredible when you feel as though a particular writing literally drinks you in? >>>After getting to know one another through blogging, it's like meeting a supahstah<<< LOL! That cracked me up but it's very true. I'm so glad you've made some dear IRL friends via blogging, as I have. Hope summer is blessing you with all kinds of opportunties to do and/or try new things. It's crazy busy here (a "fun" busy, that is), but I *love* the break from homeschooling.Blessings,~Toni~
