Tatiana's Table for the Holidays?

It's the holiday season!  And you know what that means?  Time to ask your family to buy you Tatiana's Table: Tatiana and Alexander's Recipes for Food and Love!  Now's your chance to sit back and let someone buy it for you!

Ellis Island Photos

SPOILER ALERT:  Do not read unless you have read Tatiana and Alexander. 

Tonya sent in this fantastic link to new photos of Ellis Island and said it reminded her of Tania and Anthony...and I couldn't agree more!

When Books Come to Life

SPOILER ALERT:  Don't read unless you've read The Summer Garden!

Scroll down if you have.  If you haven't, LOOK AWAY and scroll past it. :)

Hildy took a trip to Arizona and sent me this photo.  There were only two words in her email:

Shura??  SHURA!!!

Children of Liberty

Paullina's new book, Children of Liberty comes out in the fall of 2012.

What's it about?

Two words:  SHURA'S PARENTS!

Not in Leningrad.  Oh noooo.  This one tells the story of when they first met and continues on from there.

I have the same feeling I had before reading A Song in the Daylight.  I MUST read it.  But I am TERRIFIED.

Let me tell you a little something about Paullina Simons:  She knows how to do angst RIGHT.  She will have  you staring out the window for weeks after you finish the book...thinking and rethinking it through until your eyes ache because you forgot to blink.

In short:  I CAN'T WAIT!!!

Surah, Where Did You Go?

Surah, come back!  Jen J, Hildy, Cari and I went on to answer your post and it's gone!!

Let's discuss!  :)

Tatiana's Table: A Man's Perspective

If you are looking for the greatest tribute to Paullina Simons and The Bronze Horseman series, look no further.  My good bud, Clay has posted the most fantastic account on his blog "Engineered for Life" of not only his travels in Russia, but also his love of the Bronze Horseman series and his recipe testing with Tatiana's Table (which comes complete with photos of him traveling with it around the globe!)

Delectable Dangling Carrots

Even the mere MENTION of a possible option makes me happy.  I love how Paullina throws a little chum our way and watches the feeding frenzy. :)
