This phrase could have derived from the custom at middle ages jousting matches. Knights are said to have worn the colours of the lady they were supporting, in cloths or ribbons tied to their arms. However, it was found before that period. It is first recorded in Shakespeare’s Othello, 1604. In the play, the treacherous Iago’s plan was to feign openness and vulnerability in order to appear faithful.
Tapestry of love
The exhilarating action & subplots keep the reader in constant anticipation. It is almost impossible to put the book down until completion,

A picture of love and history rolled into one. A step back in time that pulls you in and makes you a part of the family and their world.
Each book’s writing gets stronger, characters become real, the struggles and sorrows that laid the foundation for this country.
Not only is the story entertaining, it opens the eastern shore of the early Virginia Colony to the reader as a picture book….I know this story will touch many peoples’ hearts.
