Luanne, at A Bookworm's World just awarded me The Bookworm's Award. Thank you!
Along with the award, there are a few rules. Open the closest book to you—not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment—to page 56. Write out the fifth sentence as well as the next two to five sentences. Pass this on to five blogging friends.
I'm reading Camp Follower, the third book in Suzanne Adair's fascinating
historical fiction series about the American Revolution. Adair has written a series, beginning with Paper Woman, and then The Blacksmith's Daughter, featuring strong loyalist women, caught up in the Revolutionary War in the South, a little-known theater of the war.
Here's the quote from page 56. "Enid's face blotched while she grappled with what Helen was sure was the need to protect her mistress and the desire to prove her intentions honorable. Helen's heart ached. If only she hadn't had to accept that assignment with the Legion." Helen, an impoverished widow, has accepted an assignment from a loyalist magazine to travel to the encampment of the British Legion, and write a feature on LtCol. Tarleton.
So, I'm passing on the award to five people. Tag, you're it! And, if you're not into memes, here's my apology. Remember, you never have to pass one on, if you don't want to play.
