New York Times Bestselling Author

On the fifth day of give aways…

… my author gave to me, an advance copy of The Summer Country!

I am so very excited to be able to share this book with you!

Here’s the official description:

The New York Times bestselling historical novelist delivers her biggest, boldest, and most ambitious novel yet—a sweeping Victorian epic of lost love, lies, jealousy, and rebellion set in colonial Barbados.

Barbados, 1854.  Emily Dawson has always been the poor cousin in a prosperous English merchant clan—merely a vicar’s daughter, and a reform-minded vicar’s daughter, at that. Everyone knows that the family’s lucrative shipping business will go to her cousin, Adam, one day. But when her grandfather dies, Emily receives an unexpected inheritance: Peverills, a sugar plantation in Barbados—a plantation her grandfather never told anyone he owned.

When Emily accompanies her cousin and his new wife to Barbados, she finds Peverills a burnt-out shell, reduced to ruins in 1816, when a rising of enslaved people sent the island up in flames. Rumors swirl around the derelict plantation; people whisper of ghosts.

Why would her practical-minded grandfather leave her a property in ruins?  Why are the neighboring plantation owners, the Davenants, so eager to acquire Peverills? The answer lies in the past– a tangled history of deceit, greed, clandestine love, heartbreaking betrayal, and a bold bid for freedom.

A brilliant multigenerational saga in the tradition of The Thorn Birds and North and South, The Summer Country will beguile readers with its rendering of family, tragedy, and the endurance of hope against all odds.

For a chance to win an advance copy of The Summer Country, here’s your question: 1810s (the tail end of the Napoleonic Wars, the Enlightenment, Empire-waisted dresses) or 1854 (Victorians, steamships, hoopskirts)?

The winner will be announced on Sunday.

The Summer Country makes its appearance on June 4, 2019.  In the meantime, it’s available for pre-order from your favorite bookstore, on Kindle, Nook, and all those other e-reader things, and in audio.  I’ll be posting much more about it as we get closer to June!

    • OJewel on December 21, 2018 at 1:20 pm

      1810, but I’ll read anything you write!!!

  2. Amy M on December 21, 2018 at 8:42 am

    1854 for me. The glimmers of modern life one sees taking root in that age fascinate me

  3. Céline on December 21, 2018 at 9:42 am

    Definitely 1810s!!! (Pink fan here! :D)

  4. Christine on December 21, 2018 at 10:19 am

    1810s.

  5. Karlene on December 21, 2018 at 10:22 am

    1854. (Love those steamships!)

  6. Lynette Burnett on December 21, 2018 at 10:23 am

    I’m gonna go with 1854 😊

  7. Nicole on December 21, 2018 at 10:23 am

    1854…..empire waist dresses don’t look good on me. Plus, it a the dawn of the modern era which is fascinating!

  8. Rachel on December 21, 2018 at 10:23 am

    1854. Hoopskirts. Swoon.

  9. Claire on December 21, 2018 at 10:24 am

    1810s definitely!

  10. J. Kocher on December 21, 2018 at 10:24 am

    1854 for sure! Love the Victorians and the idea of hoop skirts, but they’re not fun to wear.

  11. Amy Gonzalez on December 21, 2018 at 10:25 am

    1854 I have always loved the Victorian era

  12. Elizabeth on December 21, 2018 at 10:26 am

    1810 seems much more comfortable and practical for me.

  13. Kate Eminhizer on December 21, 2018 at 10:27 am

    Empire waist. Even today that gives the illusion of me being skinny ROFL!!

  14. Megan Jirschele on December 21, 2018 at 10:27 am

    1810s

  15. Jennifer Taylor on December 21, 2018 at 10:27 am

    I would have to say 1854. But really I am torn. Can I just say, you are one 9f the loveliest authors I have met? I cannot wait for your new book.

    • Lauren Willig on December 21, 2018 at 11:19 am

      That is so sweet of you! Thank you so much, Jennifer!

  16. Kathy Fannon on December 21, 2018 at 10:28 am

    Sorry but I can’t decide. Most likely 1854 as there were a few more technological advances.

  17. Michelle on December 21, 2018 at 10:29 am

    1854
    I can rock a hoop skirt!! Lol!

  18. Lora on December 21, 2018 at 10:30 am

    1810s. No question.

  19. Debbie Caruso on December 21, 2018 at 10:30 am

    1810 most definitely. Love empire waisted dresses.

  20. Bridget Erin on December 21, 2018 at 10:31 am

    This is hard, but I’m going with 1854.

  21. Wendy Neuman on December 21, 2018 at 10:31 am

    Oh please give me the hoop skirts of 1854!!
    Love the beauty of those fabulous dresses!!
    This book looks fabulous!!

  22. Trude Vandine on December 21, 2018 at 10:31 am

    1854

  23. Brenda Mason on December 21, 2018 at 10:32 am

    1854. Love those Victorians!

  24. Sandra Zajac on December 21, 2018 at 10:32 am

    1810’s for sure. Great transition period

  25. Tatum on December 21, 2018 at 10:33 am

    1854

  26. Carri on December 21, 2018 at 10:33 am

    Oh, please can I have an 1854 hoop skirt?!? The Victorian era is one of my very favorites!! Plus, the Facebook quiz I took just yesterday says that’s when I truly belong in time. 😁

  27. Adeia on December 21, 2018 at 10:34 am

    1810s for sure.

  28. Kathryn Keen on December 21, 2018 at 10:35 am

    1854, but it’s gotta be from a slightly different angle. I’ve real a lot of books about this time period but it seems they’re all very similar.

  29. Paige Foster on December 21, 2018 at 10:35 am

    1854. Like the Victorians

  30. Amy Lemke on December 21, 2018 at 10:35 am

    1854 for sure!

  31. SLM on December 21, 2018 at 10:35 am

    1854- empire waists do NOT do good things to my body! Also the Industrial Revolution makes my engineering heart happy!

  32. Teresa Kerr on December 21, 2018 at 10:35 am

    1854

  33. Ellen Dishman on December 21, 2018 at 10:36 am

    Why not both? If I truly had to pick though, probably 1854… Hoopskirts would look far better on me than an empire waist gown! 😉

  34. Kim Thompson on December 21, 2018 at 10:36 am

    1810s absolutely

  35. Diane on December 21, 2018 at 10:36 am

    Gotta go with the 1810s. The Enlightenment is such a fascinating time!

  36. Cheryl Cheatham on December 21, 2018 at 10:36 am

    1810s. I like an empire waist!

  37. Shehila Churchill on December 21, 2018 at 10:37 am

    Definitely the Empire waist dresses would be the most flattering, altho I think Victorian is maybe more interesting….but no tight lacing ! Ugh.

  38. Rita on December 21, 2018 at 10:38 am

    I would choose 1854. I’m not a fan of empire waist dresses and love reading about all the scientific and cultural changes of the Victorian period.

  39. Linda Popielski on December 21, 2018 at 10:38 am

    Gotta go with 1854 and the Steamships.

  40. Melanie Falconer on December 21, 2018 at 10:38 am

    1854 with hoopskirts!

  41. Susan Cornwell on December 21, 2018 at 10:38 am

    1854!

  42. Sheila McInerney on December 21, 2018 at 10:39 am

    1810…love the time period …and the fashions!

  43. Edee on December 21, 2018 at 10:39 am

    1854 for me! Love that time period.

  44. Missy on December 21, 2018 at 10:40 am

    1854!

  45. Catherine Ristola Bass on December 21, 2018 at 10:41 am

    I think 1854, but it would depend on where. There is a big difference between London and say, the frontier edge of PA or VA, for example. And then the Civil War in a few years, ugh.

  46. Jean Wright on December 21, 2018 at 10:42 am

    1854. Hoop skirts came around again when I was in high school. Steamships entered in a wave of immigration to this country and my ancestors came to America searching for opportunity.

  47. Aurore on December 21, 2018 at 10:44 am

    1854 for me the mystery of the victorian’s era

  48. Cathy M Calomino on December 21, 2018 at 10:46 am

    I love the Victorian Era, so 1854 for me! I cannot wait for this new book! Thanks for the chance!

  49. Laurice McClung on December 21, 2018 at 10:46 am

    1810!

  50. Eileen Mertens on December 21, 2018 at 10:46 am

    1854 – steamships and hoop skirts all the way!

  51. Michelle Springer on December 21, 2018 at 10:47 am

    1854. So many important changes were happening at that time.

  52. Cherrie Clements on December 21, 2018 at 10:47 am

    1854! I love that era.

  53. Barbara on December 21, 2018 at 10:47 am

    1854 for me!

  54. Stacey on December 21, 2018 at 10:47 am

    1854 for me! But I wouldn’t be opposed to 1810’s.

  55. Nancy Veverka on December 21, 2018 at 10:48 am

    1854!!! That’s EXACTLY 100 years before I was born!!

  56. Maya G on December 21, 2018 at 10:49 am

    1810’s definitely
    Empire-waisted dresses seem much more practical and end of the Napoleonic Wars had changed the world a lot for that was when technology had began rooting in

  57. Dana Scott-Turkovich on December 21, 2018 at 10:50 am

    1810s. The clothing would be much more flattering with my figure 😉

  58. Ava on December 21, 2018 at 10:51 am

    I would love to be in both 1810 and 1854. It would be amazing to be in those times.

  59. Cathy on December 21, 2018 at 10:51 am

    I love the Victorian Era, so it’s 1854 for Me! The Summer Country sounds wonderful, I cannot wait to read it! Thank You!

  60. Paula Scott on December 21, 2018 at 10:51 am

    1854…. Victorian age! But I also love novels set earlier in the 1800s as well.

  61. Regina on December 21, 2018 at 10:52 am

    Tough choice, but 1810!

  62. Rebecca on December 21, 2018 at 10:53 am

    1810″s I think!

  63. Miyuki on December 21, 2018 at 10:53 am

    Without any doubt 1854 to be in the peak of Queen Victoria’s reign and her brood scattered around the Europe is alluring especially with the modes of travel in those days

  64. Cathy M Calomino on December 21, 2018 at 10:54 am

    Lets try again! I love the Victorian Age so it’s 1854 for me! I love your books! thanks!

  65. Leslie on December 21, 2018 at 10:54 am

    1810–while not my most flattering dress option, I couldn’t imagine the wasp-like waist and the corseting and dieting required to make it happen!

  66. Mary Duffer on December 21, 2018 at 10:56 am

    1854, I always love to read about the Victorian times.

  67. Sylvia Buonanni on December 21, 2018 at 10:56 am

    Empire over hoop skirts…so, 1810.

  68. Krista Breault on December 21, 2018 at 10:57 am

    1854! Thanks for the chance! This book is on my TBR list and I would love to get a chance to read an advanced copy. 😊

  69. Jessica Andolsen on December 21, 2018 at 10:57 am

    1810s!!

  70. DeeAnna Sears on December 21, 2018 at 10:57 am

    The 1810s without a doubt. I love the time period, and empire waisted dresses flatter me😉

  71. Courtney on December 21, 2018 at 10:58 am

    1810s.

  72. Colleen White on December 21, 2018 at 11:02 am

    Hmm I would say 1810. Dress, hair style and men in breaches 😉

  73. Sharon on December 21, 2018 at 11:04 am

    1810

  74. Susan Gorman on December 21, 2018 at 11:05 am

    1854
    Can’t wait to read the new book!😀

  75. April Gucciardi on December 21, 2018 at 11:06 am

    1810s! Empires waist dresses are so much more flattering for my figure!

  76. Whitney J. on December 21, 2018 at 11:11 am

    Definitely 1810s for me…keeping at Jane Austen as possible 🙂

  77. Christy Playter on December 21, 2018 at 11:11 am

    1810’s!
    I can’t wait to read your new book! It was at the top of my Christmas list this year!!

  78. Sarah Weeks-Jones on December 21, 2018 at 11:12 am

    I think I have to go with the 1810s. Early American Republic is my area of study. Any excuse to rub shoulders with Jefferson, Adams, and Austen.

  79. Kelsey on December 21, 2018 at 11:14 am

    1810’s! Empire waist all the waaaayyy!

  80. Carolyn on December 21, 2018 at 11:15 am

    1810s

  81. Vicki Spillman on December 21, 2018 at 11:16 am

    1854 – hoop skirts, steamships, etc.

  82. Jennifer Huelsebusch on December 21, 2018 at 11:16 am

    Empire waist dresses are way more flattering than hoop skirts!!

  83. DJL on December 21, 2018 at 11:17 am

    1854–hoop skirts and North & South 🙂

  84. Susan Craig on December 21, 2018 at 11:17 am

    1810- love looking like a Jane Austen character

  85. Emilia Hald on December 21, 2018 at 11:18 am

    Probably 1810s.

  86. Julie Cochrane on December 21, 2018 at 11:20 am

    1854 definitely

  87. Carla Suto on December 21, 2018 at 11:20 am

    1810s!!

  88. Jayne Homsher on December 21, 2018 at 11:23 am

    I am such a fan of the Caribbean island of Barbados and its residents. This island in the 1800’s will tell me even more about their unique history. If readers have not traveled there they really need to!

    • Lauren Willig on December 21, 2018 at 11:27 am

      I couldn’t agree more! The history is fascinating and so complex. I love how every survey on the sugar islands always says “the sugar islands blah blah blah… except for Barbados”. I had to make very sure that whatever I was reading was specific to Barbados, because the experience in Jamaica and the other islands was SO different.

  89. Joyce Flesch on December 21, 2018 at 11:23 am

    1854, love that era!

  90. Cassidy on December 21, 2018 at 11:26 am

    1854 – fascinating era

  91. Clara Bauer on December 21, 2018 at 11:27 am

    1854 for sure.

  92. Betsy Boulware on December 21, 2018 at 11:30 am

    1854 ( despite empire style dresses from the earlier period 😁)

  93. Margaret on December 21, 2018 at 11:32 am

    1854 as my prom dress was a hoop skirt!

  94. Carole in Canada on December 21, 2018 at 11:32 am

    I’m all for 1810 and the empire waist gowns and Jane Austen!

  95. Jeralyn on December 21, 2018 at 11:36 am

    1810 🙂

  96. Lauren Elwood on December 21, 2018 at 11:40 am

    That so hard! I think I would say 1810s. There’s something about that era that I really like.

  97. Susan Collins on December 21, 2018 at 11:41 am

    Definitely 1854!

  98. Meg Chaberek on December 21, 2018 at 11:52 am

    1854 for sure! Really like the Victorian era. 🙂

  99. Jillian Raber on December 21, 2018 at 11:53 am

    Can my 1854 hoopskirt have pockets? If so then definitely a hoopskirt.

  100. Amber Stevens on December 21, 2018 at 11:54 am

    1810! Love the empire waist dresses. Hate the hairstyles though.

  101. Stella McKissack on December 21, 2018 at 11:57 am

    Hard choice, but I would choose Victorians

  102. Sandy CA on December 21, 2018 at 11:58 am

    1854, please! Thank you!

  103. Stephanie on December 21, 2018 at 11:59 am

    Probably 1854

  104. Jamie Beal on December 21, 2018 at 12:00 pm

    1854, I love the Victorian age.

  105. Joan on December 21, 2018 at 12:01 pm

    My daughter and I LOVE your pink carnation books and the period of early 1800’s, but my favorite is the Victorian era so I’ll go with that.

  106. Annette Hunter on December 21, 2018 at 12:03 pm

    1854, I think.

  107. Daniele Krug on December 21, 2018 at 12:12 pm

    1854 for me. Thank you for the chance to win

  108. Kayse on December 21, 2018 at 12:12 pm

    I tend to gravitate towards Georgian/Regency, so definitely 1810s!

  109. Tammie Cash on December 21, 2018 at 12:13 pm

    I would love to ride on a steam ship in 1854.

  110. AngelB on December 21, 2018 at 12:22 pm

    Going to lean towards 1810. Less Cholera. 🙂

  111. Deborah Miller on December 21, 2018 at 12:23 pm

    Definitely 1810s!

  116. Bonnie Mueller on December 21, 2018 at 12:32 pm

    Hoop skirt, 100%

  117. Sally Campbell on December 21, 2018 at 12:35 pm

    1854 for sure!

  118. Maureen Stokowski on December 21, 2018 at 12:40 pm

    1854 for me!! Thank you for the opportunity to win an advanced copy.

  119. Megan on December 21, 2018 at 12:47 pm

    1810s☺️

  120. Arletta on December 21, 2018 at 12:48 pm

  121. Rebecca on December 21, 2018 at 12:52 pm

    1854… Hoop skirts amuse me. I’d almost certainly hate to wear them but the style is fun to look at.

  122. Bev on December 21, 2018 at 12:53 pm

    1854! Can’t wait for your new book!

    1854 .

  125. Cyndi Mihalik on December 21, 2018 at 1:03 pm

    Can I choose both?

  126. Pat Dupuy on December 21, 2018 at 1:05 pm

    1810’s thank you! All those soldiers….

  127. Tanya on December 21, 2018 at 1:07 pm

    1810s, but I have would love reading a novel by Lauren or the 3 Ws set in either time period. Happy Holidays!

  128. Freya on December 21, 2018 at 1:35 pm

    Oh, 1810s absolutely. The gentlemen were so much more raffish and rakish and all that.

  129. Erin Gehringer on December 21, 2018 at 1:35 pm

    1810’s

  130. Jackie Davis on December 21, 2018 at 1:36 pm

    1854. I live in a town in New Zealand (Oamaru)which has retained its Historic buildings etc of the Victorian era and has become a mecca for tourists to visit the quirky shops and business’s . November is a busy month with the Heritage Celebrations when the town is full of people dressed in Victorian clothing

  136. Michele M on December 21, 2018 at 2:13 pm

  148. Kristen Allen-Vogel on December 21, 2018 at 4:18 pm

    1854 you also get bloomer suits, and the women’s suffrage movement has been a thing for a few years in the U.S. at least. (I have an 1850’s style bloomer suit in a steampunk print that I wear at cons, especially if I’m going alone and don’t have somebody with me to lace me into something.)

  149. Laura on December 21, 2018 at 4:35 pm

    Thats such a hard decision! I love everything about 1810’s but also love the hoopskirts! So I’ll say 1854 because I love how the hoopskirts make the waist look smaller!

  150. Jennifer on December 21, 2018 at 4:40 pm

    Ooh that’s a tough one! I’ll go with 1810

  151. Joanne Mielczarski on December 21, 2018 at 4:44 pm

    1854 and the Victorians for me.

  152. Carla on December 21, 2018 at 4:51 pm

    1854

  153. Cassandra on December 21, 2018 at 5:20 pm

    Hmm…it is a hard decision, but my pick is 1810. I love the fashions from both, but I look better in empire.

  154. Carola Proctor on December 21, 2018 at 5:32 pm

    1810 🙂

  155. Tracy Darabaris on December 21, 2018 at 5:37 pm

    1854

  156. Elizabeth (Miss Eliza) on December 21, 2018 at 5:43 pm

    1810s… though fashion is going to be shortly going crazy!

    1854 – love those hoop skirts.

  159. Dianne Casey on December 21, 2018 at 6:05 pm

    Going with 1854 – love the Victorian era.

  160. Moriah on December 21, 2018 at 6:47 pm

    1810s for sure

  161. Rachel on December 21, 2018 at 7:15 pm

    1810s.

  162. Maggie on December 21, 2018 at 8:05 pm

    1810s, but I wouldn’t say no to an 1854 adventure either! 🙂

  163. Kim Gourley on December 21, 2018 at 8:20 pm

    Definitely 1810s. Hoop skirts are too hard to work!😊

  164. Lynn Russell on December 21, 2018 at 8:35 pm

    1854 big dresses and hoop skirts.

  165. Shannon Dunn on December 21, 2018 at 9:01 pm

    1810 – empire waists!

  166. Jessica Chappell on December 21, 2018 at 10:04 pm

    1854!!!

  167. Sarah H on December 21, 2018 at 10:14 pm

    1810

  168. Sarah Redman on December 21, 2018 at 11:01 pm

    1854!

  169. Karen on December 21, 2018 at 11:34 pm

    1810’s! Empire waists!

  170. Jessica C on December 21, 2018 at 11:37 pm

    1810’s because the clothes were less restrictive (no thanks, corsets and huge skirts!) and for the extremely slim chance of bumping into Jane Austen.

  171. Jennifer johnson on December 22, 2018 at 12:01 am

    1854!

  172. Jackie Bas on December 22, 2018 at 12:03 am

    1854…..era of modern invention. Not too fond of hoop skirts though.

  173. Amy C on December 22, 2018 at 12:49 am

    1810’s

  174. Morgan J. on December 22, 2018 at 1:22 am

    1810s. Love me an Empire-waist!

  175. Monique Flasch on December 22, 2018 at 1:48 am

    Going Victorian. Better medicine, and the dresses would suit me better!

  176. Marla Reese on December 22, 2018 at 1:49 am

    The empire waists of the 1810s suit me just fine!

  177. Karen Herzog on December 22, 2018 at 2:09 am

    Victorian for me.

  178. Kristen Morris on December 22, 2018 at 3:42 am

    1810s because empire waists are always flattering!

  179. Christine White on December 22, 2018 at 7:20 am

    1810 I couldn t take those hoop skirts!

  180. Debbie Mitchell on December 22, 2018 at 7:58 am

    1854

  181. Tara on December 22, 2018 at 8:06 am

    Victorian times all the way! But, I would want to live as Lady of a manor, a small enough manor not to be tied up in politics, in the English countryside 🙂

    • Tara on December 22, 2018 at 8:07 am

      And I would need my hubs along with me, of course.

  182. Lauren G. on December 22, 2018 at 10:10 am

    I’ve always been more interested in Victorian (1854) over Regency (1810).

  183. AmyD on December 22, 2018 at 10:27 am

    1810s, love those dresses!

  184. Barbara Johnson on December 22, 2018 at 11:03 am

    1854

  185. Maria on December 22, 2018 at 3:18 pm

    1810’s the empire waists are so pretty!

  186. Jennifer Rawley on December 22, 2018 at 3:46 pm

    1854 – love reading about the Victorian period. Can’t wait to read your new book!

  187. LynnS on December 22, 2018 at 4:22 pm

    Regency over the Victorians. I have to figure out how to plausibly meet Jane Austen, since she didn’t conveniently do book tours.

  188. Paige B. on December 22, 2018 at 4:32 pm

    1810’s 🙋🏼‍♀️Happy holidays, Lauren! I will always read anything you write no matter the time period!

  189. Jessica Dickson on December 22, 2018 at 5:54 pm

    1854, I love the Victorian era. Imagine having a truly traditional Victorian Christmas!

  190. Ellen Di Paola on December 22, 2018 at 6:53 pm

    The end of the Napoleonic Wars.

  191. Alex S. on December 22, 2018 at 7:01 pm

    1854! 🙂

  192. Jane on December 22, 2018 at 8:02 pm

    1810’s

  193. Tonya M on December 22, 2018 at 8:25 pm

    Um, yes. Both. Who can choose?

  194. Julie on December 22, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    1854

  195. Liz on December 22, 2018 at 9:54 pm

    1854 so I could have a classic Victorian Christmas!

  196. Connie Lee on December 22, 2018 at 10:26 pm

    1854 for me, although both sounds good.

  197. Rebecca W. on December 22, 2018 at 11:09 pm

    Oh, the 1810s for sure!

  198. Gini Noble on December 23, 2018 at 7:09 pm

    Definitely the 1810’s.

  199. Tina Otayco on December 23, 2018 at 7:40 pm

    1854 for the steampunk, 1810’s for the dresses!!
