Christian Fiction Scavenger Hunt: Stop 21

Summer_scavengerhunt1Welcome to the 2013 Summer Scavenger Hunt! This hunt has 32 stops and runs 5/17-5/19/13, beginning at noon Mountain Daylight Time on Friday, May 17th. You can make the loop, reading unique content from 31 different authors, and if you complete the loop, and fill out the Rafflecopter form at Stop #32, you’ll be in the running for an iPad Mini (loaded with all our books), or one of two runner-up prizes–all 31 of our new releases in paperback. In addition, some authors are offering additional prizes, so be sure to read each post thoroughly to be in the running for all that are available. The contest is open internationally.

If you’ve JUST discovered the hunt, I recommend you begin at the beginning, Stop #1, found at LisaBergren.com. But you can also begin here, and keep on rolling. Just be aware that you have to have the COMPLETED phrase in order, which you construct gathering the clue at each stop, within 24 hours of email notification from Lisa Bergren that you won. If Lisa doesn’t hear back from you with the correct phrase within the time limit, she will move on to the next winner Rafflecopter draws.

Ready? Here we go!

ROBIN LEE HATCHER

I am so pleased to introduce the amazing Robin Lee Hatcher. She’s a prolific, multi award-winning author, but even more importantly she’s a devoted follower of Christ and an inspiration to her readers and other authors too (including myself). I am truly honored to host her this weekend.

 
robin Robin is known for her heartwarming and emotionally charged stories of faith, courage, and love. She discovered her vocation after many years of reading everything she could put her hands on, including the backs of cereal boxes and ketchup bottles. Winner of the Christy, the RITA, the Carol, the Inspirational Reader’s Choice, and many other awards, Robin is also a recipient of the prestigious RWA Lifetime Achievement Award. She is the author of nearly 70 novels.

Robin enjoys being with her family, spending time in the beautiful Idaho outdoors, reading books that make her cry, and watching romantic movies. Her main hobby (when time allows) is knitting, and she has a special love for making prayer shawls. A mother and grandmother, Robin and her husband make their home on the outskirts of Boise, sharing it with Poppet, the high-maintenance Papillon, and Princess Pinky, the DC (demon cat).

Robin’s latest story is about a mail-order bride, and she’s come up with a fun time-travel twist for this post. The following is in Robin’s own words…

westernwomanTen things I would pack if I were an 1800’s mail-order bride

I loved writing a novella about a mail-order bride in 1870 (A Bride for All Seasons, June 2013), but I would have a tough time being one. I’m a thoroughly modern Millie. I preferred getting to know my man and fall in love with him before we said our “I do’s.” But for centuries, women have married for many other reasons than love. Arranged marriages were the norm until quite recently.

Well, let’s pretend I’m single and that traveling back in time is a possibility. My groom awaits me in the 1870’s West. What ten things would I pack?

1)    My Bible (I’m thinking I’ll need direction)
2)    Penicillin (I’m a practical girl)
3)    Neosporin (still practical)
4)    Bandaids (still practical)
5)    Comfy undies (they are not getting me into a corset)
6)    A flashlight with batteries (I don’t want to get lost on the way to the outhouse)
7)    My favorite lotion in a giant economy size (dry skin isn’t pretty)
8)    Poppet, my dog (I might need her company; she loves me)
9)    A box of my favorite gel pens (just because)
10)    24 rolls of toilet paper from Costco (self-explanatory)

What would you take if you were headed back to 1870 to marry someone you’d never met? I’d love to know.

 

Bride4AllLeslie here again…

    I would have to have a journal because I am certain there would be lots to tell. I loved your list, especially the comfortable undies. That’s my line of work. making undies that stay where you put them!

      You are right about needing a journal, Claudia. Hmm. I guess I could drop the gel pens but then what would I write with? Oh dear.

    If I were a mail-order bride, I’d be sure to take my Bible and journal. I’m thinking I’d need direction (like Robin said) and a place to vent. 🙂

    Wow, I’ve never met anyone like me that was such a lover of the written word that they would read cereal boxes and ketchup bottles before! People would always look at me funny when I would tell them that, but it’s the truth! I read everything I could when I was a kid and still to this day find myself perusing the back of a cereal box at the breakfast table. I am also a modern, or as my sons like to say, citified girl LOL.

    I’d take most of the things you had on your list but would add chocolate and a couple boxes of products most women keep under their bathroom sink.

    enter me please

      Awesome, Heather. Maybe we are twins separated at birth. Or maybe ketchup is just interesting. 😉

      And how could I forget chocolate!!!!!

  45. Deanna Mundy

    I would definitely pack a bunch of deodorant, hair goodies for my long hair, and some mementos of my loved ones to remember them by.

    Loved reading about the 10 things the author would take. I don’t know if I could take just 10. We are so spoiled now a days, eh?! Loving this blog hop, and learning about a wide variety of genres in Christian reads. I have recently been introduced to historical readings and so far have enjoyed the two I have read. This one sounds very interesting. Will have to add it to my to read list. Thank you.

    What a fun interview. Hmmm–what would I take to meet and marry a man I’d never met before? In addition to the Bible (yes, direction!) I’d want to take a pen and paper so I could write letters and keep a journal of all the wonderful adventures I’d have. I may not have time to write much, but I’d need them along for whenever the moment presented itself.
    Thanks for the bonus giveaway, too!

    I love this question because I think I was meant to live in the late 1800’s. Really! If I went back to 1870 there is no question what I would take…. BOOKS! I can’t imagine not reading daily. That’s why I love you guys so much. You fill my days with love and adventure and I thank you!

    I’m not sure what i would bring. Since they didn’t have electricity like they do now… I guess my computer and phone would be out. 🙁

    I’m totally 100% modern too. I can’t live without my running water and indoor plumbing.
    i’d bring practical things too. 🙂 Soap. Toilet paper. ..toothbrush and toothpaste..shampoo…

    🙂 that’d be cool if i could go back and forth. then i wouldn’t run out of anything “modern”

    Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve
    had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good
    platform.

  182. You’re so awesome! I don’t suppose I’ve truly read through a single
    thing like this before. So good to discover someone with original
    thoughts on this topic. Really.. thanks for starting this up.
    This site is something that is required on the web, someone with a
    little originality!
