a. The Lady of Bolton Hill - Female journalists are rare in 1879, but American-born Clara Endicott has finally made a name for herself with her provocative articles championing London's poor. When the backlash from her work forces a return home to Baltimore, Clara finds herself face-to-face with a childhood sweetheart who is no longer the impoverished factory worker she once knew. In her absence, Daniel Tremain has become a powerful industry giant, but Daniel's success is fueled by resentment from past wounds. When Clara's very life is endangered by one of Daniel's adversaries, they must face a reckoning neither of them ever could have foreseen.

b. Harvest of Rubies   "Tells the story of Sarah, a young Jewish woman who labors under the impressions that  her work is the only thing that proves her worth. Since her mother's death, she believes she is a burden for her father and those around her. She becomes the Queen's senior scribe due to her excellent reading/writing skills but still feels she has to constantly prove herself. When she does receive praise, she fears her next step will be the one that messes everything up. Then Sarah marries Darius, a Persian noble but he comes to the conclusion that she married him for his money and after things go sour on their wedding day it only fuels his disgust for her and he leaves her alone on his estate. Left with only a few servants, Sarah must learn the value of friendship and her own worth. With some guidance of a Persian gardener and advice and wisdom from her cousin Nehemiah, Sarah struggles to regain her faith in God and to believe that the Lord loves her just as she is. But even if she accepts that God loves her, will she ever be able to make Darius love her?"

c. Edenbrooke: A Proper Romance - "Marianne Daventry will do anything to escape the boredom of Bath so when an invitation arrives from her twin sister, Cecily, to join her at a sprawling country estate, she jumps at the chance. Thinking she'll be able to relax and enjoy her beloved English countryside while her sister snags the handsome heir of Edenbrooke, Marianne finds that even the best laid plans can go awry. From a terrifying run-in with a highwayman to a seemingly harmless flirtation, Marianne finds herself embroiled in an unexpected adventure filled with enough romance and intrigue to keep her mind racing. Will Marianne be able to rein in her traitorous heart, or will a mysterious stranger sweep her off her feet? Fate had something other than a relaxing summer in mind when it sent Marianne to Edenbrooke."
d. The Maid of Fairbourne Hall - Pampered Margaret Macy flees London in disguise to escape pressure to marry a dishonorable man. With no money and nowhere else to go, she takes a position as a housemaid in the home of Nathaniel Upchurch, a suitor she once rejected in hopes of winning his dashing brother. Praying no one will recognize her, Margaret fumbles through work and hopes she can last until her next birthday, when she will gain an inheritance from a spinster aunt--and sweet independence. But can she remain hidden as a servant even when prying eyes visit Fairbourne Hall?

    And for something encouraging:

    If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it. -ANAIS NIN

    I don't know if this is encouraging but i just love the thought of it ;P

    1. Oh i forgot to ask, is this contest open for people outside the USA?

    2. So nice of you to join in girly! Harvest of Rubies is a very good pick! And I love the quote you chose...very inspiring as I interpret it --to be real, and authentic and boldly honest in expressing thoughts and feelings into the written word. I think people are desperately looking for truth and authenticity in our culture.
