Blog Birthday Giveaway – Manor House Stories

Blog Birthday Giveaway - Manor House StoriesToday is the last of my collaborations with The Soup Dragon Says as she celebrates a number of weeks of giveaways on her blog for #WorldBookDay.  You can read Tina’s reviews of both these books for my Blog Birthday Giveaway – Manor House Stories.

Today we’re offering 2 books from the Manor House Stories series written by Jani Tully Chaplin. Book 1: Cream & Sugar the Milkmaids and Book 12: Lady Davina Dove (which is also signed by the author).

The stories are about a family of birds who live together in The Manor House and follow the adventures of the characters and their duties, from the lowliest scullery maid upwards through the ranks of the household to the head of the family.

Jani wrote the stories for her children some 25 years ago whilst living in Devon. It was a chance encounter with her publisher in 2011 that brought these 12 tales back to life.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

A Mum with a 9 year old son, enjoying life and having fun as my son travels through school life. We love to get outdoors whenever possible and make the most of the world around us. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. hmm i dont think i would like to have been a worker, maybe the lady of the house so i could have everything done for me lol

  2. Lady of the Manor. So that I could live in comfort and be treated, organise parties etc. If that is not an option :- A Lady’s Maid, so as I could choose clothing for her to wear etc. Whilst an assistant to do the ironing etc would be great.

  3. I would have liked to have been the lady of the manor as I hate cleaning! I would have been very modern though and self sufficient lol!

I'd love to hear from you and try to reply to all comments
