Magic for Marigold (giveaway)

THE WINNER OF LAST WEEK'S CONTEST FOR A COPY OF THE MOVIE LANTERN HILL IS STEPHANIE @ SIMPLE THINGS. Congrats, Stephanie!

Magic for Marigold is perhaps one of Montgomery's lesser known works but that doesn't mean it's not worth a read. If you haven't stumbled across a copy of this one, then I'm here to offer you an opportunity to nab it and read!

Here is the description of the book from Amazon.com:

The eccentric Lesley family could not agree on what to name Lorraine's new baby girl even after four months. Lorraine secretly liked the name Marigold, but who would ever agree to such a fanciful name as that? When the baby falls ill and gentle Dr. M. Woodruff Richards saves her life, the family decides to name the child after the good doctor. But a girl named Woodruff? How fortunate that Dr. Richards's seldom-used first name turns out to be . . . Marigold! A child with such an unusual name is destined for adventure. It all begins the day Marigold meets a girl in a beautiful green dress who claims to be a real-life princess. . . .


I picked up a gently used copy of Magic for Marigold and would like to pass it along to one of you!

This contest is open to US and Canadian residents only and will be open through Thursday, January 27th. I will announce the winner on Friday, January 28th at the conclusion of the L.M. Montgomery Reading Challenge. (At which point we can all cry that the challenge is over but then wipe our tears and start planning for next year! One of you can add Marigold to your stack of future reads.)

If you are participating in the Lucy Maud Montgomery Reading Challenge and have left me a comment/link saying so, feel free to enter twice!

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. THE WINNER IS #26 - Stephanie's Mommy Brain! Congrats, Stephanie!

Looks like a fun and sweet book. I'd love to add to my Montgomery collection. Did I tell you I picked up the 1st to Anne books a month or so ago. Can't remember if they were free at home school co-op or on the $1 rack at the library. Either way I thought of you and had to bring them home. :)

Stephanie's Mommy Brain said...

I'm in the challenge. 2 posts so far. Considering watching Anne today with my kids and posting about it tomorrow. We'll see how the rest of the day goes.
