A Draw of Kings by Patrick W. Carr

A Draw of Kings, the final installment in The Staff and the Sword series by Patrick W. Carr brings the world of Illustra to the final battle for its life. Will the dark forces of the surrounding worlds prevail, or will light and hope of a new king and saviour overcome?

Errol and his companions return from their last journey to find the king is dead and the kingdom is in chaos. The only thing that will bring order is for the new king to be crowned. But the lots still cannot tell if Liam or Errol should be king. So, they each set out on different journeys to help the kingdom prepare for the impending battle that will come as soon as winter ends. Will the people from the boarding countries rally to help Illustra? And how will the herbwoman’s prophecy that either Liam or Errol must die, come true and lead to the salvation of Illustra once again?

Having read the first two books in this series, I was so excited to finish it off. And this book did not disappoint. The action kept me turning pages when I should have been doing other things. I just wanted to know who was going to be king and if Errol and Adora were going to be able to be together. This is a great series and one that would pick up and read again.

I was given a copy of this book to review by Bethany House Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.
