An excerpt from my work in progress:
I let my lids fall closed, and I remembered hours before when I sat on the stump by the river. Alone and at peace. Then I opened my mouth, and even though I could have sworn I forgot the words, they came out.
Denver joined my voice first, long dulcet fiddle tones harmonizing with me. Then Beau came in on the bass, sure and steady, giving me an anchor. I belted it out, keeping my eyes closed, and letting the song carry me. Dominic and Cotton layered their instruments into the song, making it even more beautiful. Time stilled, held me in its hands while I sang, then started up again when I finally opened my eyes.
I've been working on a sequel for The Guilt of a Sparrow, featuring Denver MacKenna and Olivia Hamilton. In this scene Olivia sings for the MacKenna boys at Denver's request.
Working title is The Weight of a Choice, but I have a feeling it will change as I continue working.
