Six Sentence Sunday 30th

As always, my thanks to everyone who stops by. I appreciate your company and your comments.
This week I am again posting six sentences from my current WIP. Today's offering carries on from last week.


Hardening her heart against the hurt she saw in his eyes, Debra focussed on the reason for her outrage. She’d battled the petty restrictions placed on a single woman, and the constant need for a chaperone since her early release from the schoolroom, until her marriage. But Harold always accepted her as his equal, and his recognition of her sharp mind and ability to work beside him soon assured her a place in the everyday working of his estate. They’d ridden the countryside together, visited tenants, and spent many hours discussing all aspects of the estate’s wellbeing and future together in the evenings. Everything she knew, she’d learned from Harold.

“And you’re nothing if you’re not a quick study,” he often told her with a laugh that usually ended with a cuddle.

Why is she mad at him? He sounds wonderful. It's rare to find someone who knows you that well. She shouldn't push him away!

Cheryl, thanks for your comment and company.

Sherry Gloag said...

Dainne, she's mad at her brother (previous sixes, and missing her late husband, harold. Thanks for your comments. Perhaps I need to revisit this. I love when you all make me step back and re-assess.
Thanks for coming by.

It's always hard when someone you trust does something to betray that trust. Sounds like he's treating her like a "woman" suddenly. I wonder what brought that on? Great six.

Ginger Simpson said...

Like the picture your portray. And yes...you can harden your heart...I do it frequently. :) Thanks for sharing.

Taryn Kincaid said...

This must have been a bitter betrayal.

Sandra Sookoo said...

Nice internal thoughts :-)

Vivien Dean said...

A strong sense of mood in this. Thanks for sharing!

Great insight into their past. :) Makes me wonder why the sudden change in attitude towards her. If he loved and respected her independence and brilliance, why try to undermine her now?

Stephanie Adkins said...

Wonderful six! I wish you a ton of sales with your books! Happy Sunday and Happy Halloween!

Sherry Gloag said...

Sherry Gloag said...

Sherry Gloag said...

Thanks for your kind words and company, Sandra.

Sherry Gloag said...

A bad presentational choice of six on my part, Mirriam. Thanks for coming by.

JoAnne Kenrick said...

Poor Debra xx sounds like that's some kind of betrayal! Yikes! Great six, Sherry!

Angela Guillaume said...

I love these six! Is she speaking to Harold, though, or remembering Harold? I need to visit your other sixes to get my answer, I think. I'm a sucker for historicals!
