Artemas Colebrook is the stuff of myth: a proud, intelligent boy who vows to salvage his Southern family's name, which has been tarnished by his father's philandering and squandering of the Colebrook fortune. Blue WillowAuthor: Doris Gates, Paul Laantz (Illustrator)A little girl, who wants most of all to have a real home and to go to a regular school, hopes that the valley her family has come to, which so resembles the pattern on her treasured blue willow plate, will be their permanent home.

If you’re throwing a party for The Bloggess, it’s best to make her feel right at home by bringing in as many dead animals as possible, which is exactly what the Blue Willow Book Shop, 14532 Memorial Dr., has planned. You can mingle with the taxidermy and Jenny Lawson at the independent book store this Tuesday at 7 p.m.
Lawson is the author of the The Bloggess, one of the funniest and most wildly inappropriate blogs on the Internet. Lawson’s dad once woke her up in the middle of the night with a “magical” squirrel which was really her dad’s hand stuffed into a squirrel carcass like he thought it was a puppet. Despite the fact that she survived her childhood (and the world couldn’t possibly be terrifying than an early morning squirrel carcass wake-up could it?), she struggles with severe panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder and writes about her condition with extreme honesty and humor. She’s snarky, witty, hilarious, generous and the most awesome insane person you’ll ever have the privilege of reading. Seeing how successful her older sister's "mail order marriage" has been and longing to strike out on her own, Greta Olsen answers an ad for a mail order bride in Central City, Colorado.
Greta Olsen answers an ad for a mail-order bride and travels to Black Hawk, CO, to meet her prospective husband.

Though Artemas's quest is vaguely medieval, the story is planted squarely in the 20th century. But when she meets Jess Gifford, owner of a thriving mercantile, she begins to harbor doubts. Winner of the 2013 Laurel Wreath Award, she was a 2013 finalist for the Published Maggie Award of Excellence, a 2013 finalist for the Heart of Excellence Readers' Choice Award, a 2012 finalist for Inspirational Reader's Choice award, and a recipient of the 2004 ACW Persistence Award in Atlanta. By any measure, the Blue Willow Inn in Social Circle, Georgia is as southern as you can get. ISBN: 978-1-4185-6634-0 CHAPTER 1 DRINKS and BREADS SWEET TEA Iced tea is Dixie's eau de vie.

At age seven, Artemas is precocious enough to assist at the birth of Lily Mackenzie, linking them forever. He didn't place the ad to begin with and his business in a busy mining town leaves him little time or energy for love. Proprietor Billie Van Dyke says that no one is allowed to leave hungry, and certainly no one should after feasting on a variety of Southern salads, meats, vegetables, breads and desserts and, of course, sweet tea, the "Champagne of the South," and lemonade.
It excites the palate, slips down the throat, and brings vigor back to bodies wrung out from the hot sun.
A series of family squabbles and misunderstandings keeps these two star-crossed lovers from each other, although as the book progresses the reasons for their separation become more and more ridiculous. When she's not writing, she enjoys reading, researching for her novels, and spending time with her family. Housed in a gloriously restored southern mansion, The Blue Willow Inn is home to Southern hospitality and charm at its best. Throughout the Deep South, people drink sweet tea, which means that there is no need to add any sugar to what is served.
All is exaggerated and melodramatic: after Artemas loses his virginity in the forest in a tender (and anatomically unbelievable) scene, his father rides by on a horse, snatches up his son's beloved and rapes her. Will either bride strike the match she hopes for?Filled with amusing and awkward situations that will keep the reader interested and guessing, Twice Promised is another sweet romance from Maggie Brendan. The Blue Willow Inn Cookbook offers delicious Southern recipes, vintage pictures from the early days of Social Circle, and fascinating anecdotes about the restaurant.
An architectural collaboration between Lily's husband and Artemas's sister collapses, killing the celebrants at the building's opening gala.
VERDICT This second "Blue Willow Brides" inspirational romance (after Deeply Devoted) moves along at a relaxed pace and should appeal to fans of Jody Hedlund and Kim Vogel Sawyer. Her books have received the Book Buyers Best Award from the Orange County Chapter of Romance Writers of America and the Laurel Wreath Award. It is best drunk from a tall, wide-mouthed glass with clear, fresh ice cubes or heaps of crushed ice.
The battle over who is at fault for this tragic accident drags on, and even when Lily and Artemas can finally be together, Smith ( Miracle ) fails to resolve definitely the question of blame. A member of the American Fiction Writers Association, Romance Writers of America, Georgia Romance Writers, and Author's Guild, Maggie lives in Georgia.
And there are no greater experts on America's regional restaurants than Michael and Jane Stern. If you wish, you can be fancy and squeeze a little lemon in it or add a sprig of mint, but really, any addition is gilding the lily.

Indeed, the motto at the Blue Willow Inn is to serve tea "strong and just a little too sweet." Many are the hot summer days when we have gulped multiple glasses of this tea, realizing that this and only this is the beverage that God meant parched southerners to drink. It quenches thirst, replenishes verve and vitality, and stimulates your appetite for a nice hot supper. According to Louis Van Dyke, "Grandmothers and mothers of the Old South served sweetened iced tea at every meal. In the Old South, children were never allowed to drink iced tea until they were twelve years old.
1 gallon water 4 to 5 family-size tea bags (each one is enough for a quart of tea) 3 cups sugar, at least Lemon slices, for garnish (optional) Sprig of mint (optional) Bring the water to a boil in a 1 ½-gallon saucepan. MAKES ABOUT 4 QUARTS Veranda Tea Punch Sweet tea and lemonade are the traditional beverages to drink before and during a Blue Willow meal; but for special summertime moments on the porch, this equally sugary punch is something completely different.
MAKES ABOUT 3 QUARTS: 20 SERVINGS Angel Biscuits Leavened with yeast, these biscuits are airier and lighter than the traditional biscuit that comes with breakfast.
Place each biscuit on a lightly buttered baking pan, and bake for 10 to 12 minutes until golden brown. MAKES 15 TO 20 BISCUITS Banana Nut Bread This is more like dessert than it is bread to accompany a meal. Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf pan, and bake for 1-¼ hours, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. MAKES 1 LOAF Blueberry Muffins Social Circle's Hard Labor Creek Blueberry Farm suggested this recipe to the cooks at the Blue Willow Inn. They're wonderful served warm from the oven, with softened butter to melt inside when you pull one apart. Combine the egg, milk, oil, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and blueberries, mixing lightly.
MAKES 12 MUFFINS Buttermilk Biscuits Having grown up in Savannah, the Van Dykes know just how important biscuits are as part of a big southern-style restaurant meal.
They always include plenty of buttermilk biscuits, which are essential companions for any meat or vegetable dish with juices that need sopping. We watched the Blue Willow cooks make them, and the one thing that impressed us was how little they handle the dough: the less kneading, the fluffier the biscuit.
