One World One Heart 2010 Giveaway



I've decided to take part in the One World One Heart Contest for this year.


So another year has gone and here we are with another One World One Heart event. Organised by the lovely Lisa.


It all kicks off today and my giveaway will end on 15th February at 1pm GMT.


So what is OWOH - Well Lisa started this huge event in 2007 - A meeting of minds, talent and fellow bloggers.


Friendships are forged and new blogs discovered. All you have to do is create a giveaway, it can be anything you like, whatever inspires you, whatever is your passion. The event is open to everyone all over the world.


The rules and details can be found HERE.



I will be giving away the book The Christmas Pearl by Dorothy Benton Frank.



Theodora is the matriarch of a family that has grown into a bunch of truculent knuckleheads. While she's finally gotten them all together in South Carolina to celebrate, this Christmas looks nothing like the extravagant, homey holidays of her childhood.


What happened to the days when Christmas meant tables groaning with home-cooked goodies, over-the-top decorations, and long chats in front of the fire with Pearl, her grandmother's beloved housekeeper and closest confidante?


Luckily for Theodora, a special someone who heard her plea for help arrives, with pockets full of enough Gullah magic and common sense to make Theodora's Christmas the love-filled miracle it's meant to be.
