And The Winner Is!

Jocelyn Tyrrell correctly answered the question asking which famous book and author the excerpt was that I posted the day before yesterday (Friday – April 1). It was a section from Beloved by Toni Morrison. As a result Jocelyn is receiving a free copy of the novel Buddha’s Wife.

Jocelyn is married to Michael Tyrrell and says, “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… it’s about learning to dance in the rain.” Loreena McKennitt is one of her favorite musicians and the Wizard of Oz one of her top 2 movies. How can you not like a woman that has such good taste? Here is her profile picture from Facebook.
