This Week's Word - Do you know what it means?

Hi everyone, and thanks for stopping by for this week's word. Hope you learn something new!

Gowpen
Noun [ˈgəupən]


The hollow of two hands held together as if forming a bowl.



Originally the word came from Old Norse, gaupn. It is said it still exists in some modern Scandinavian dialects. When it first came into Britain, probably with Viking settlers before the Norman Conquest, it seems to have referred to a single cupped hand, the idea of a double handful being indicated by gowpens. Some writers continued to distinguish between one and two cupped hands in this way almost down to modern times, though the word now seems to be used only in the singular to refer to both hands.

If you haven't read THREE FOR THE WIN yet, it's a suspenseful contemporary romance (and a love triangle). It's all about small-town, second chance romance.

About the book:

Eli Trace and Hollis Rowan have been best friends in the small town of Barrows since childhood. Their lives are changed forever when Stede Marrow rides in on his big, shiny motorcycle. After Stede saves Eli from drowning in the creek, he meets Hollis.

One look is all it takes for Stede and Hollis to fall in love. Now Eli realizes he just crushed his own dreams of happiness. Stede wonders why he didn't just keep riding down that road to nowhere and Hollis wonders how one can love two men?

Stede's on the run from the law. Telling his new best friends the truth will put their lives in jeopardy, and that's the last thing he wants.
Danger has come to the town of Barrows and then twists and turns like a viper.

Not everyone makes it out alive.
