Tomorrow, Saturday, is the shortest day of the year: the Winter Solstice. I find it a fascinating concept that the sun changes direction and the days gradually become longer until the longest day at the Summer Solstice in June.
Midwinter Masquerade is set in the Scottish countryside around the Winter Solstice of 1816 and it is a significant time for the heroine, Lenora, as she contemplates the direction of her future.
I’m talking about winter and Christmas over on PennyEhrenkranz’s blog today, where I’m giving away a free download of Midwinter Masquerade to one commenter. Hope to see you there.
The photo is of my newest Christmas tree decoration: wooden Victorian type ice skates. I fell in love with them when I spotted them at a recent Charity Fair. I’ll post another couple of my favourites before Christmas.
