The number of giveaways and contests are starting to pinch me a bit. I can’t afford to offer bigger-than-life prizes like books and other pricey items except for something really big, like the annual contest or seasonal writing contests. So, I’m offering smaller prize packages since I do both character quizzes and fun “what am I?” contests. This character quiz prize is a sticker sheet, a fun “fat” notebook, and a horse sucker. Everybody is pinching these days, and so am I. Shipping the prizes really adds up too!

  1. Hey, Mrs. M. I read through the entire Family Secret book but couldn’t find anywhere where it mentioned Betsy’s age. (For question number 14)


      1. Yes, it’s in there. Except for Long Ride Home, the rest of the series did not change much in content (I added a locket inscription, and added the part about Kate giving Hannah her own locket for Tessie’s, and I added the part about Justin’s pocket watch, but all the main stuff is the same, so Betsy’s age is there). Maybe you were skimming? 🀩


  2. Yay! I can’t wait!!
    For question 12 it could be any of them… Elizabeth welcomed her home first, and Melinda was super excited, and J


  3. Ohhh! This is hard! I would say Chad cared the least that Katheryn ran away but he -I remember reading- was the closest to her as a child. I just don’t know! I’ll have to check in Family Secret and see……..


  4. Mmm, the original book doesn’t actually say that a meal is Kate’s favorite so if I just pick what they ate the first night she was there would that be correct?


    1. I can’t answer with a yes or no. Sorry. That would be giving you the answer.

      All I can say is that the original and anniversary editions do not differ regarding this question.


  5. Mrs. M. did you send an email about this post to all of your followers? I didn’t get an email for this post, and i didn’t unsubscribe.


    1. It’s because I used the same post. I change it to draft, edit, and reschedule. I guess WP doesn’t send out a notification of it’s already been posted once. Oh well. Everybody should know the day I was announcing it. πŸ€ͺ


    1. I was wondering the same thing @anonymous
      I thought I had unsubscribed too! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Glad that wasn’t the case πŸ˜€
