I received an email from a concerned reader who worried I was not well after reading Field of Dreams. She said, “It’s sad and happy. I am used to your stories being fun and exciting.” Trust me, I am used to the same.
In the two months since my Mom died, I have fewer sad days. In truth, my Mom would have been very, very unhappy with me mourning her for so long. Therefore, over this past week I have made a good start on two more “Dreaming of Darcy” stories.
The first one is “Book of Dreams”. This is mostly set in Hertfordshire. The other is “River of Dreams”. The river in this story is the Mississippi. It is post Hunsford after the rejected proposal. I’m having a ball with this. The research alone is amazing. There is the potential for Darcy and Elizabeth to meet Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett, Mike Fink, Nathanial Bowditch, Robert Livingston, President James Madison, and Robert Fulton (inventor). If they can make it all the way to New Orleans there are the pirate brothers, Jean & Pierre Lafitte. Can you imagine the mischief they can get into? I can.
I have the cover for “River of Dreams” already finished. I’m trying to decide between three images for “Book of Dreams”. I’ll post them here. Do you have a preference? I would sure like to know. (I’ve also attached my current covers in this series)
