The match-up was between Never Say Goodbye (which I hold in enormous affection. I am always dinging for Heaven is Gentle for being so dreary up in Scotland but this one goes to bleak Communist Poland and I am ALL IN for that The Amber Necklace of Unspoken Passion Resting Underneath the Twin-set of Stoicism.) and Matilda's Wedding (Which I gave the win to because of the plastic chamber pot she buys for the doctor's waiting room, because she has to shower at the pub during the village sickness, but mostly for that image of her sweeping rubbish in the wind on her front porch with a bit of sack tied around her waist as the doctor speeds by.)

Another of the books it makes me really sad to see drop out is A Kiss for Julie which I have in large print. Because of this, I am not sure it hasn't made me super-biased. But I love the clothes she cobbles together and the projectile she hurtles at the head of an intruder. Good stuff. (Sniff. In happier news, Tillamook just came out with a special batch of Oregon Strawberry Lemonade. I'm going to polish off this gallon and get some more. I just looked at Dearest Mary Jane and can. not. with this.)
We're moving on to the final bracket of this round: The Imperiled Poppets Bracket (Round Two). There are some match-ups in there that suggest I start putting quantites of ice cream into food storage for the duration. Have fun!
