More funny tombstones
Epitaph over wife in Sunbury Churchyard, England:
“Oh! Do not weep, my husband dear;
I am not dead, but sleeping here;
Then mend your ways, prepare to die,
For you are soon to come to I.
Chiseled in the tombstone beneath the above;
“I do not weep, my dearest life
For I have got another wife;
Therefore I cannot come to thee;
For I must go to cherish she.”
Did you know that in the founding days of America many citizens were persecuted because of their religious beliefs?
Read about this period of American history in the historical series, Tapestry of Love. Inspired by true events, these three books take you back to the time when our founding fathers who were immigrants from many countries, began to build new lives and a new country. All historical events actually took place on the Eastern Shore of Virginia and Maryland in the 17th century. Each book has an appendix at the end that delineates truth from fiction and sources and would make great gifts for history lovers or those who want to learn more about the early days of America. The descendants of the family depicted in these novels eventually settle in Alabama.
The series consists of three novels which are available in Ebooks as well as Paperback:
A story about families leaving England for the New World and the dangers on the trip. It gives the choices of the land being settled and the difficulties the families face in daily life and even the fear of uprisings of the Indians. It tells about what is happening in England and the home sickness of women for their families . The families are involved in the tobacco business. I found it very helpful to understand the early Virginia colonies and persons who settled there. It is an easy read.
I just finished this book and loved how the historical accounts were validated in the end of the book. The author did a great job in taking these accounts and creating a beautiful story. Loved it so much I just downloaded the next two books in the series!
