Happy almost Memorial Day! I hope everyone is having a nice long relaxing weekend, but also pausing to remember those who have fought for our country, especially those who paid the ultimate price for our freedoms.
Fitting with the day, the hero of my novel Weathering Rock, is an ex-military man, although he’s time travelled from 1863 shortly after the battle of Gettysburg, to the present day. Caleb DeCardian has made a less than favorable impression on Arianna Hart, the heroine of the story and needs to make amends. Last Sunday they ran into each other at the library and he asked for the chance to make up for his blunders.
I’m picking up there this Sunday with Caleb speaking first, followed by Arianna. I’ve had to snip a bit due to the limitation of six sentences. Incidentally, Weathering Rock is the name of the property (an old pre-Civil War home) where Caleb lives:
“I’d like to invite you to dinner. At Weathering Rock.”
“Sorry, I’m busy.” Snapping the book shut, she returned it to the shelf. Before she could retreat, he caught her arm.
“I haven’t told you what night.”
Eesh! Freakishly short, but that’s all SSS will allow. I hope you’re return next week to see where things are headed. In the meantime, check out the other fantastic reads being offered by participating Six Sentence Sunday auhors and enjoy your holiday!
I appreciate your comments!
