Elizabeth Carter Character Quiz

Note: I should mention that I have received very few entries so far. I usually get a bunch right away and the rest of them near the end. If I don’t have a lot of entries, I will assume everybody is tired of these quizzes and I will not go to all the work to offer them any longer. Just an FYI.

The winner is Sara M. Random.org chose her out of eight qualifying entries. Only one entry got 100% of the questions right (Kinsey R.). The rest got 100% because although they missed one, they answered the bonus question right (good thing I have that bonus question, eh?) Here are the qualifying entries in the order I received them (and used Random.org). Scroll down to see which answers the rest of you missed.

  • Anna I.
  • Kyra J.
  • Micaiah C.
  • Sara M.
  • Natalie L.
  • Jalaena E.
  • Kinsey R.
  • Kate D.

Since this is the same Elizabeth Carter (Mother) quiz but from the older books, I’m offering the same prize! Any Circle C (or Goldtown) digital audio book, plus a brand-new glossy, acrylic keychain (choose “Taffy” or “Mane Flowers”).

  1. Hi, Mrs. M

    On your old blog you interviewed a young woman about a magazine she works with or started. Her name was Grace C and she wrote the Battle of the Bull story that placed in your annual contest one year. What is the name of the magazine, I have forgotten and can not find it.

    Thank you

    1. I have no idea. I don’t remember any magazine started by her or an article written by her. It’s been so long! I barely remember the contest for that year, but I do remember her story about Chad and the bull. 🙂

  2. I’m a little confused about question 8. I know one answer is right, but I also know mother told Andi she only had to be a day student at the academy. I’m confused if that was a promise or not.

    1. Haven’t thought about it. I’m too busy trying to keep goats and horses dry and warm. If you are used to snow, that’s one thing…. But these storms are wreaking havoc to CA people used to 70s every February. No one is prepared (well, we are with generators and horse blankets cuz we are all from WA), but a little farther up it’s the worst disaster ever!

    1. A town called St. Michael. It’s so nice to live in the south now! I like snow, but I’ve lived with it all my life, so it’s super nice to have like 70 degrees most days! 😀

    1. Rosa is next month. Sadie is a no-go because mostly she is in the Stepping Stones. Doing it for the younger kids did not work out very well.
      Rosa will be the last Character Quiz unless I get more responses.
