For the last two Sundays, I’ve shared short excerpts from “Keeping Faith”, the second book of my “Sunset” series — scheduled for release later this year from Secret Cravings Publishing.
Today, I’m going back in time from 1876 to 1872. This little snippet comes from the first book of the series, “Not the Marrying Kind“. Here you can meet Katherine Phillips — better known as Kat — and share the moment when her father gives her a bit of news she’s not too happy to hear.
From: Not the Marrying Kind
“He’s taken quite an interest in you, you know.”
Although her father spoke the words in a calm, quiet voice, they set off waves of panic as Kat realized their meaning. Her chin shot up. “Who are you talking about, Pa?”
He chuckled. “Reverend Kendrick, of course.”
“Well, that’s plumb foolishness, and you know it.”
“He’s a good man, Kat, and he’d take very good care of you.”
Her jaw dropped and she stared at her father. Finally she found her voice. “Surely you’re not suggesting I—” She couldn’t bring herself to finish the thought. “No, I couldn’t!” She tried to laugh off the ridiculous idea, but the look on her father’s face frightened her. He couldn’t possibly be serious…could he?
During the month of March, all royalties from sales of Not the Marrying Kind will go to Reach Out and Read. If you’ve already purchased your copy of the book, why not grab one as a gift for a friend? Your help in support of early childhood literacy is appreciated.
