I’ve drawn the 3 winners for Heather Barbieri’s The Lace Makers of Glenmara. Here they are, along with their answers to what comes to mind when they think of Ireland:
#1 – Sallie -When I think of Ireland right now I think of our grandson who is spending a while working on an eco-farm there.
Next and always, I think of hoping I have time to go there sometime. I am intrigued by many comments I’ve read and pictures I’ve seen that the country reminds people of the Oregon Coast. I’d like to see for myself.
#6 - booklogged – At the very first mention of Ireland I thing, “Green.” Then other thoughts begin to enter – Celtic, Gaelic, harps, pubs, blarney stone, wonderful accents and the distinctive music.
#32 – Lisa – Thinking of Ireland brings to mind haunting Celtic music, harps, cool green landscapes and warm pubs. Ireland was the first place I ever visited that I wanted to return to before I even left. It is beautiful and magical, full of wonderful and talented people.
Congrats to the winners! Please email your US/Canadian mailing address to me by midnight on Tuesday September 1. Many thanks to HarperCollins for providing the books!
