Thank you, L.K. Evans for including me in this game of tag. The prompt is to “post 7 lines from a page number ending in 7 from one of my works-in-progress, as well as tag 7 other authors to participate in the game.” I can do that.

My WIP is A PRINCESS AMONG THORNS AND THISTLE.

“Sarah considered the possibility that she would not survive the voyage. She imagined herself following Commander Forbes to an ocean grave. This time, without medicine or the care of a physician, death was certain and the seafarers’ custom was to deposit diseased corpses into the sea. She told James as much, but restrained herself from mentioning that a tragic demise whereby she would be mourned by her friends in England was preferable to a long, married life with him in Freetown.

The ship’s cabin had become Sarah’s refuge. For weeks, she floated, free to mourn Queen Victoria’s abandonment. As much as she had hoped, her illness appeared not to be fatal, and Sarah was forced to begin the life she most dreaded.”

In turn, I tag:
