Veil of Pearls Book Tour!

I have been waiting for a LOOOOooooog time for this tour! I really have and I am so excited to have one of my favorite authors spotlighted this week. MaryLu was actually the first EVER author I contacted and asked if she would be interested in doing a book tour on my blog. So, this is kinda surreal to me and just plain excited to have her here on my blog all this week:)

Veil of Tears is just an amazing book. The story id full of faith, but also masquerades and secrets. I couldn't help myself. I knew I HAD to do a Masquerade Ball.

 How exciting! I'm have a Ball! You bet I am:) I hope to get my computer back very soon because I have some fabulous graphics and photos for my party (along with my other tours and the CQ carnival. Yes, my heart is still broken...but feeling better. Don't weep for me. Your eye make up will run...heheh)

 Anyway, on to the ball! Since Masquerades are all about hiding the real you, I thought we would play a few games this week. MaryLu's characters are hiding behind some lovely masks and it is up to you to find them. Just in case you have read the book yet, of course you will not know any names. It you want t participate, go ahead! I'm posting pictures, and as long as you make a guess, that's all that matters. Just say, "I think it is the girl in the pink gown, or the lawyer in the top hat. Okay. First, the question, then the clue, then some pictures.

Ready? Let's go!

Who gave Adalia so much generosity that she thanked God every day for His provisions? This person was very proficient in a certain profession and sometimes your life depended on this person's help.

  3. Thanks for having me on your blog! I love Masquerade Balls! Everyone is all dressed up and it's so mysterious! How fun! I don't think anyone would know the answer unless they had read the book, but it's fun to guess. :-)

    1. I *hope* I make the clues easy enough that everyone will be able to make at least a wild guess. Having read the book, I hope I can add more mystery. Well enough that others will run and buy the book before curiosity kills them:)
