My read for the week. Into the Lion’s Heart by Beth Trissel, available at The Wild Rose Press


And this quote comes from page: 12-13:

He singled out a young woman on the stricken
craft. Lengths of brown hair whipped from beneath a
green bonnet. Her gray cloak and dark skirts
billowed around her. He couldn’t see her face, but
she wasn’t screaming and sensibly hugged the main
mast. Unexpectedly stoical behavior, as was her
conservative dress. He’d anticipated utter hysterics
and frills galore.
Pointing a finger at the girl, he called, “Is that
her?”
Tom shouted in his ear, “Doesn’t look like an
aristo!”
“No.” That couldn’t be his charge. But there
were no other females to be seen.
Unless. What if Sophia had already plunged
overboard?
Dalton’s heart sank at the thought of conveying
those bleak tidings to his aunt. But he wasn’t readily
defeated. Determination welled in him. All was not
yet lost. This unlikely female might be the one he
sought.
“Maybe she’s in disguise!” Considering King
Louis XVI, Queen Marie Antoinette, and their
children had recently been forced from their palace
at Versailles by a bloodthirsty mob of fishwives and
removed closer to Paris to reside at the Tuileries
Palace as virtual prisoners, the fear among French
nobles was further heightened.
