I just realized that I perhaps was not clear when I posted the Elizabeth Elliot quiz - your key to entry into the giveaway. The questions refer to Persuasion, not Mercy's Embrace. It would be very cruel of me to expect only people who have already read the books on offer to participate. Here is an opportunity to crack open those beloved volumes of Persuasion and look at how very little information Ms. Hile had to work with when creating her heroine. Austen paints her only superficially, as befits her character, leaving the windows wide open for speculation about what might really be going on behind her beautifully selfish facade. I have altered the giveaway post in order to clarify my intentions. Sorry for the confusion!
