After finishing a most awesome travel assignment, I have time to give my WIP some much needed attention. This novel is from a single POV, Roald Fischer, a boy born in 1871 with the gift of second sight. I already love him so much! He grows up on a farm in southern Illinois (my Little House on the Prairie influence is kicking in hard!), hence the gorgeous scene.
A line from my chapter this morning…
“Roald felt the pricks of the insult heavily, and not for the first time did he wish for the courage to strike back. But speaking was his own worst enemy, and words were his only weapon. So he remained where he was, absorbing the taunts and crying internally.”
And yes… His name is inspired by one of my favorite authors, Roald Dahl.
