James and Mary

In the Year of Our Lord 1630

“Going Home”

The pain ceased and he saw Mary, fresh and lovely as a spring’s misty morn with the sun peekin’ o’er the pinkish purple and amber hills of The Highlands. This time he not only heard the voices clearly, but saw the happy faces of his Clansmen; not just his immediate fam’lee, but warriors he had fought beside and watched die fightin’ The MacKinnon’s dreaded enemy, The MacLeoids; as well as wee bairns and babes lost to The Clan in infancy and youth; and Mary’s kin as well, veiled in the shadows.

In the middle of them all, in a gleaming gold light, stood his Mary in a white dress with The Blackbain Plaid o’er her shoulder, the earthy colors of The Plaid blending with an armful of Highland wildflowers and a wreath of yellow, red, and pink rosebuds crowning her glorious dark auburn hair. A loving smile graced her luscious lips, and her rosy cheeks glowed as she reached out to him as his bride.

James stepped out of the dark and soiled cabin into the lush green of rollin’ hills, reflected in the deep blue water ‘round The Isle. He was dressed meticulously as a groom in The MacLean Kilt, the silver and dark emeralds of The Brooch at his broad shoulder twinklin’ in the sun.

Aye, they were home at last.

      1. Doing about 1000-1500 words a day. Then proofreading, rewriting and Sid does the final proof. Really shooting for end of September. Need to put another excerpts on blog. A light, funny moment … coming soon, Twin.

    1. Thank you, Carol. I have been living with this book and cast of characters inside me for many years. All the minute details have been researched. Authenticity is so important to me in this story that may well be my past life. Thank you for noticing.
