My latest novel, Dame Audrey, released at the end of August, and I’m working on two new stories in different series.
For now, I’ll continue snippets from Dame Audrey, my new medieval romance set in fourteenth century England in and around my hometown of Reading.
Audrey has discovered the sheriff’s bailiff, Selwyn Drake, praying in her parish church. He explained he was praying for his deceased wife and stillborn child.
You can read last week’s snippet at https://auroraspringer.blogspot.com/2019/09/a-sad-loss-snippet-from-dame-audrey-for.html
This snippet begins a few lines later. Two women entered the nave and were staring at Audrey and Selwyn, so he suggested they leave the church.
Once outside the church, I stepped into the sunlit graveyard. The sounds of bartering came from the market across the main street, yet the narrow path winding between the graves was peaceful and private.
Unconsciously, I took my usual walk in the direction of my family’s grave. The names carved in the headstone had been rinsed clean by the rains, although the daisies I had laid at the foot of the mound on Sunday had been washed away.
I paused and placed my hand on the top of the gravestone, “My husband lies here beside our two little children.”
He touched the polished stone and his gaze traveled over the inscription. “You are fortunate; you can pray at their grave. My family’s tomb is far away.”
“…one of the very sweetest stories I’ve read in a long time.”
“…a truly enriching experience for all those who love history.”
