Okay, there’s a reason for the silly post title of this Sweet Saturday Sample/Sunday Snippet. In this scene from my new book, Keeper of the Grove, Aaron’s just turned over a note to Stacy which will change everything. (It’s a little longer than the customary six paragraph but…I hope you will find it intriguing…)
[Stacy] unfolded the paper, and her breath stopped when she read the words written there in black ink.
I have something you might be interested in. A rare diary in your ancestor’s handwriting.
Should you be interested, tell Mr. Fielding. I’ll unlock my vaults for you.
“McDunn? Who’s McDunn? What is this?”
“A private collector. According to our last chat, he sounded fairly adamant that you should have the diary.”
“Someone local?” she asked.
“Do you know how much he’s asking for it? We’re a little low on cash.”
“He didn’t discuss figures. It can’t hurt to ask.”
She thought a moment. Depending on varying factors, old diaries could be very inexpensive, or priceless. Which category would this fall into? “I just don’t know.”
“What’s the harm in taking a look?”
An interesting question. She wondered why he cared whether or not she saw the thing. If he really was a harshad warrior, and if the diary could stop the war, why didn’t he just present it to their leaders and be done with it? And leave me out of it.
