I received the ARC galleys for Sweet Lenora this week. This last step before publication is always exciting because it means that release day is near. Sweet Lenora is a historical romance novella set on an clipper ship in 1862. It will be available for purchase on July 1.
Here's this Sunday's eight, the opening lines of Sweet Lenora:
On the day of my father’s funeral, the gray October sky opened and shed copious tears. It was good that the sky was so willing to cry as I could not find my own sorrow. It seemed I buried it upon learning of his death.
We stood around the gravesite as he was laid next to the mother I had never known. My Aunt Louise looked up now and again from under the awning of her black umbrella to insure herself that I had not jumped in after the coffin or run off into the rain. To Aunt Louise, I was a spoiled and fractious child, not a young woman of twenty with a mind of my own.
“High time you found her a husband,” she had said to Father on more occasions than I cared to count. “It will not do to let her run wild.”
