I usually have a knitting project in mind when I write it into one of my books, but Laura’s apricot-colored shawl just kind of appeared upon the page as I was writing the first scene of Lady Wynwood’s Spies, volume 4: Betrayer , and it surprised even me. I immediately went to my yarn stash to find a yarn for it, and I searched through my antique knitting books to find some stitch patterns. I made her an elegant wool shawl she could wear at home. The shawl ended up tagging along with Laura into the next book, Lady Wynwood’s Spies, volume 5: Prisoner , where it imparts some comfort to her in her trying circumstances. The two stitch patterns are both from the same book, The Lady’s Assistant, volume 2 by Mrs. Jane Gaugain, published in 1842 . A couple excessively clever and creative knitters might have knit these patterns in the Regency era, but they would have only passed them around by word of mouth or scribbled “recipes” to friends or family, and it wouldn’t have been widely use

Thanks! I hope you enjoyed it!Delete
Hi, Camy! I have read and enjoyed the first 16 books of the Miracles of Marble Cove series on my ereader, but I'm having a difficult time finding "Steps of Faith" on the Guideposts website in hardback or digital form. Strangely, I'm able to find several used copies on Amazon.com, so it must be available somewhere. Can you help me? I'm desperate to find out what happens next! :DReplyDelete
I'm afraid I don't have control over the digital copies of the Marble Cove series. I had thought it was available on ebook but it looks like it isn't. However, it could be that they're just slow in releasing it in ebook form. What I would suggest you do is email Guideposts to ask them about it. That way they'll know that readers are anxious to get the book in ebook form and they might also be able to look at their publishing schedule and let you know if the ebook version is coming out soon. Thanks for reading the series! I love writing for Guideposts!
I've been searching for this book all over, and found it on a list at Guideposts, but not anywhere that will let me purchase it. I would like it in digital format, but would settle for a hard copy. Found some used on Amazon, so it must be available for purchase somewhere. Can you help me?ReplyDelete
