Welcome to the last stop on the “Pinned” in Time Blog Hop! I hope y’all have had as much fun as I have over the last two weeks as we’ve celebrated the Penned in Time series with Pepper! Personally, I’ve loved revisiting all the wonderful moments Pepper has chosen for the Pinterest scavenger hunt.
If you’ve missed a few blogs, there’s still time to go back and check out all the Penned in Time fun. Links to all the previous stops and giveaway details are included later in this post.
A Glimpse of Penned in Time Fashion
Historical novels bring the past to life like no other medium can. Movies and television may wow us with the sights and sounds of history but immerse yourself in a novel to engage all your senses.
Authors draw readers in with color, texture, scent, weight, taste, sound, and emotion! Readers put themselves in the character’s shoes… or dress! Just imagine slipping into one of these beautiful WWI period fashions and dancing with a handsome fella.
Can you imagine being swept off your feet in one of these lovelies? Tell me which one you would choose in the comments. My favorite is dress number 4, gold and black lace!
*These images are all found on Pepper’s WWI Fashions board on Pinterest. Find out more about these fashions and more by clicking through to the original posts.

About The Thorn Bearer
When Ashleigh Dougall’s fiancé leaves her eight months before their wedding, the unexpected blow ignites a battalion of insecurities stemming from her father’s intimate betrayal. In an attempt to escape her shame, Ashleigh boards the ill-fated Lusitania to cross the war-torn waters of Europe. Much to her dismay, she isn’t traveling alone.
Sam Miller is always making up for his best friend’s mistakes. Determined to help his childhood friend, Ashleigh, he offers his compassion and companionship as she ventures across a perilous sea. With the faint hope of renewing his lost love for Ashleigh’s sister, Sam never expects to find the woman of his dreams in the love of his childhood friend.
Neither are prepared for the life-altering and heart-breaking journey of their friendship.
About The Thorn Keeper
With her past in shambles, how can she fashion a future of hope?
Catherine Dougall’s past of manipulation has left her future in threads. With a new faith, she longs to take the remnants of her life and make something beautiful, but shame, societies’ judgments, and the natural consequences of an unplanned pregnancy test her newfound hope. Dr. David Ross doesn’t help either. His kindness, sacrifice, and tenderness tempt her to impossible dreams. A fallen woman doesn’t merit a fairytale.
David Ross has made every effort to keep his life above reproach. His passion for the sick pump fresh purpose through his choices, but without financial support to maintain his war hospital, all is lost. When his notorious aunt offers an easy solution, David is tempted to give in to her demands, but his growing affection for the reformed flirt, Catherine Dougall, unwinds the careful wall around his heart and offers an unexpected choice.
When the worst of war tears them apart, can love renew the memory of what was lost or will tragedy steal away their hope forever. From the beautiful Derbyshire countryside to the trenches of World War One, Catherine and David must learn to trust in a God who designs a masterpiece out of brokenness and fashions hope in the most unlikely places.

Author: Pepper D. Basham
Jessica Ross returns from WWI to her small Appalachian community of Hot Springs, NC after she is wounded in an explosion and German gunfire. Her hopes of a quiet life, as far away from the trenches and filthy Germans as possible, are demolished as soon as the train pulls up to the depot.
The grounds of the beautiful Mountain Park Hotel are littered with barracks and internees, German internees, who have been living and working in her town for the past year. As she steps out of the train she sees a group of the men marching by. Her wounded leg trips her and she lands right in the arms of one of them. Sparks of attraction fly, but Jess’s bitterness stems deep. She will never trust another German.
Unfortunately for her, August Reinhold has found a place in her grandparents’ hearts. In her absence, his work on her grandfather’s farm and his diligent help in his clinic has made August a constant fixture in their lives.
