Ladies ... Emily's new publisher has offered us 5 Advanced Readers Copies (ARCs) of Heartsong Cottage to give away when we've finished our discussion of Nightingale Way!!

There are TWO things you need to do to enter:

#1
If you haven't already done this -- go to this link and add Heartsong Cottage to your Goodreads TBR list! (In other words, mark it as Want to Read).
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...
If you HAVE already done it, or have already had a chance to read Heartsong Cottage in ARC format - just say so in this discussion thread.

#2
Answer this question - selected by Mr. Random from all of the questions suggested by our members (Lola suggested this one):

"If you could have dinner with 5 people - living or passed - who would it be and why?"

I actually think it's providential that this question was selected...5 ARCs to give away, 5 people to invite to dinner!

Go one-click "Want to Read" - think about all of your possible dinner guests - and comment away!


Lorena Keech | 3 comments I have added Heartsong Cottage to my TBR list.
The question is a very difficult one because there are so many people I would enjoy talking with.
But if I must decide, I'd say 1)My father who is deceased. He was just the smartest, funniest guy and he was always a great dinner guest. And of course, it would be great to see him again. 2)Abraham Lincoln because I think he could add some of his wisdom about "a house divided" to help us with our current political upheaval. 3)Franklin Roosevelt for his political insights and because he seemed like a convivial fellow. 4)Bill Clinton because he too seems so smart and yet down to earth. 5)Pamela Harriman because she was a brilliant hostess, loved men, had a great political mind and would know just what to say to keep the conversation rolling.

Carol If I could invite 5 people to dinner, they would be my Mother, my three sons
and my husband. My Mother died before I meet my husband, married and
had my sons. This way they could meet their maternal grandmother and mother-in-law. We would dine on the plates and goblets my Mom left me.
We would have petifores for dessert as that was my Mom's favorite.

Add Heartsong Cottage to my Want to read list.

Margaret | 53 comments I have already added Heartsong Cottage to my want to read list.
1) I would invite my great grandmother Elizabeth, who died when I was seven.

I would really like to hear them again! 2) Also, my grandmother Effie, who was a young adult in the roaring twenties. 3) I would invite Eleanor Roosevelt, because I've always admired her good sense and wisdom. 4) I would invite Madam Marie Curie, a scientist, and first woman to win a Nobel Prize. 5) Finally, I'd invite my daughter, Meg, because I think she'd love the conversation, and I would want to share the experience with her!

1) my birth mother - I was an infant when she passed. I'd love to just be with her for a little bit.
2,3,4) my kids - so that she could see them and they could meet her.

message 13: by Sharlene (new) - added it

Sharlene (swegner) My mother in law passed away about 8 years ago. She was a really sweet lady & I miss her. She would be number 1. I would also love to meet my father in law, who died very young, long before I knew my husband. My husband's brother, whom we haven't seen for 8 years. I haven't seen my sister for a year, so I would pick her, too. My grandma, who died about 15 years ago at the age of 91. She loved reading romance novels & loved babies & children!

2. Whoopi Goldberg
3. The Dalai Lama
4. Betty White
5. Sylvia Browne To see if she was right about the other side.

Cathy Genna - 2013 RWA Bookseller of the Year (rwa2013bookselleroftheyear) | 8 comments HEARTSONG Cottage is on my TBR list.
you said to Paula:
Hello Paula and all!

Answer this ONE question in the Nightingale Way Giveaway thread: "If you could invite 5 people - living or passed - to dinner, who would they be, and why?" This question was contributed by Lola, one of our members, and we'd love to know your choices.
I would invite Pauline & Bruce a Stover, Ann Orsuto, Jill Migone & Saint Francis of Assisi. Pauline, Bruce & Ann were very close friends of mine who passed in their early 40's and I miss them! I struggle with their loss every day. Jill is my cousin who tragically suffered from a brain tumor at the young age of 9 when I was 11. My sister was her age and Jill's sister Dawn is my age. We grew up together and Jill always had a smile on her face even when she became paralyzed on her entire right side of her body. She was beautiful. I wonder what she have to say today. Lastly St. Francis- well I'm animal rescuer and have multiple pets in heaven. I like to think St. Francis is watching over them all and he could give me an update even if it took him all night.

Brandi (poohfanatik) | 117 comments I add it a bit ago.

A friend of mine who passed at the ripe old age of 92 for one more great conversation,

And twofer my two angel babies who although never made it to the earthly plane but left footprints ony heart and soul.

For the record I am loving these books and enjoying the discussion group! I have added Heartsong Cottage to my TBR list and liked it as well.

My dinner guests would be:

1. My husband who passed away in 1995. I would love to tell him about our grown kids and their children. It would mean so much to me to share all of that with him.

2. My mom. I lost her to cancer 30 years ago. I would love to see her and tell her about who I am now and the woman I became.

3. My dad. Catch up time! He has been gone for 4 years and I miss his wit and grumpiness! lol

4. From long ago, Joseph from the bible. I would like to know what his life must have been like, straight from him. I studied him in a church group and his life was amazing. I'm sure I could learn even more from him.

5. Oprah!! Who wouldn't like to have her at your table. She is amazing and I would love the chance to talk with her and learn from her!


Doris Lankford | 3 comments Heartsong Cottage has been on my TBR pile since it was first announced. My dinner guests would be: 1. My Mom who passed away in 2009 and because I miss her everyday and would love to hear her voice one more time. 2. My sister who passed away in 2012 at the age of 53 and because I have so much I want to tell her. 3. John F. Kennedy because he was a man of vision and I would love to hear what he has to say about our changing world. 4. Robin Williams because he made everyone laugh and we need more laughter in our lives. 5. Bill O'Reilly because I like to hear him talk and he is very smart and insightful.

I love all of the thought you've put into your selections and thanks for sharing the "why" - I agree, it's a difficult question simply because we can learn so much from the past and the present - and there are so many people we care about or are curious about that we would love to connect with!

Linda (lindamanthey) | 413 comments I added Heartsong Cottage to my "Want to read list" quite a while ago.
This is a very difficult task for me. There are so many to choose from.

I would love to sit and converse with Jesus, but I wouldn't want it to be in a group situation. I think I would want to give Him my full attention and listen and learn form Him.

The More I thought about the question I kept coming back to this one idea.

SO, my choices are these five people.

1. My Maternal Grandfather- I adored him. (passed away)

2. George Yonce- Bass singer for the Cathederal Quartet (passed away)

3. Johnny Cook- My favorite tenor of all time and a member of the Gospel singing group The Happy Goodman Family. (passed away)

4. Rusty Goodman- Baritone singer in various Gospel Quartets and one of the most prolific song writers in Gospel Music. (passed away)

5. Stan Whitmire- A wonderful Christian Pianist and singer. (still living)

My Reason for these selections:

When I was a young girl I would visit my Grandpa and we would watch the Gospel Quartets on Sunday Morning Television singing right along with them.
Every evening we would sit on the front porch, sofly gliding on the porch swing, and sing together. Grandpa was a wonderful Bass singer and George Yonce has aways reminded me of him.
I would want to gather with all these wonderful Gospel singers and musicians and just, once again, sing with my Grandpa the way we did so many years ago, but in a grander way with all these wonderful folks gathered together. I can't remember a happier time than when I sat on that front porch with my Grandpa singing gospel songs. The world seemed to be at peace and all was well within us.

That is a beautiful story, and like so many others it triggered an incredibly happy memory for me. Both my paternal grandfather and my father sang bass. My grandfather wrote gospel songs in old fashioned "shape notes" (I don't know if anyone else in here even knows what they are...I just remembered seeing him diligently writing them out as I read your story.) My father sang in a quartet for years - with 3 of his best friends - and as a family we sang as a trio in church (despite my horrendous stage fright). As the daughter of a bass and a soprano I was inevitably an alto...! Those memories will carry me through today and I am loving this discussion thread so much! I haven't posted mine because I've got to give it a lot more thought! Have a blessed weekend, everyone. xo

Paula - I've only been to Ukiah a couple of times when I was young. My grandparents had lots of friends there....I remember staying on a sheep ranch when they were shearing, and I remember how beautiful the area is. I grew up in the Bay Area in Los Altos, but have been in the Midwest for about 25 years now. Sigh.

Margaret, I thought I had moved to the middle of nowhere when we landed here seven years ago, and Virginia Beach will always be "home" to me, but I have to say the quality of life in a rural community has been a wonderful experience. It's simpler in so many ways - it's quieter, the pace is slower, the people are very diverse, and there is a sense of community that you don't get in a lot of places these days. But now I want to live in Eternity Springs!

The Loopy Librarian (loopy_librarian) | 7 comments I added Heartsong Cottage to my Want to Read list. For dinner I would invite:

1) Nancy Pearl - She's like a librarian superhero. I have her action figure, and I'd love to talk books with her.

2) My grown children - both active military and far away. I miss them.

3) Emily Dickinson - my favorite poet

4) The Bronte Sisters

5) Jane Austen

With these guests, I think a tea party would be ideal. My son might feel odd in this group, but I need him to come anyway. I'll make him chicken 'n dumplings.

I have an idea for a new question that I might hold on to for next time - having to do with food...of course. Food brings people together in so many ways. So many of our fond memories involve celebrations with food. We look for comfort foods we love from childhood when we need to feel that connection again...I may be starting to be obsessed with the subject.

P.S. Take it from me -- if you have a story you feel needs to be written...write it! Even if you never publish it, let the story out. As they say in Eternity Springs, give it wings to fly!

5 people....Tough question.
1. My Great Grandparents. I never got to meet them and would like to know about them, and the times they lived in.
2.Emily March. Would like to just talk and see how she puts together her ideas.
3. Princess Diana. For many reasons.
4.Brenda Novak. I like her books and her causes.
5. My brother and parents who have passed, so they could meet my grandchildren.

Margaret | 53 comments Wow! So many great people would be invited to these dinners! I love that so many of us would invite deceased parents, grandparents, great grandparents, and our children. Family is so important, and Eternity Springs seems like a big family, caring and looking out for each other. Perhaps that's why so many of us are drawn to this series. Then there is the chicken and dumplings... Yum!


Jennie  Veazey Let's all pack up and go to Eternity Springs and plan a Huge dinner and invite all of our wonderful guests! And the guest of honor would be our own favorite author and creator of Eternity Springs Emily March! How awesome would that be!

I completely relate to the boring stuff you thought you'd never do but want to learn now thing... my grandmother taught me to crochet, and I practiced it for several years, then became a mom -- and now I can't even put together a granny square! We owe it to our grandmothers to keep these crafts alive, which is one of the reasons I love Eternity Springs so much - it is alive with arts and crafts.
