I knew that C.S. Lewis and I had more in common than our Christianity when he said, "You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me." Welcome to a celebration of faith, tea, and the written word. I'm always engaged in a book, and whether it's one I'm reading or one of the inspirational historical romances I write, there's always a cup of tea close by. Join me in a cup as we chat about faith, our favorite books and the exciting places our reading and writing adventures take us.

Have a Seat by the Gramophone! It's 1915

Well, I'm just about done editing my Edwardian! What fun I've had. The fashions. The excesses of the wealthy during this period. And the music!

One particular song plays a part in my 1915-set story. I thought you might enjoy a taste of the 1910s: Al Jolson singing "You Made Me Love You (I Didn't Want to Do It)". Forget the snow (or drought, wherever you may live) and take a three minute vacation to the past. Just sit back, close your eyes, and pretend it's on the gramophone while you relax in your parlor with a cup of tea.

Ha ha. Ive been doing the same thing. There's a collection on You Tube of 30 or so songs from that era. And me trying to match the right ones to the dances. They really do the trick!
