I'm going to post a snippet from The Highland Lass over the next few weeks as the rights have now reverted to me and it has always been the 'book of my heart'. As it's a dual-time story, I'll post a snippet from one of the historical chapters from 1785 today.
>Risking another glance, I see he has turned away to look at the preacher. His dark hair is smooth and curls in below his neck, his profile is strong. He is smart in jacket and neckerchief and he has not the air of a farmer. Just as I remember I’m still staring, he looks up and our eyes meet again. This time I smile shyly and briefly before returning to my open Bible. He must not think I admire him too well. I’ll not become one of the silly lasses who cast longing glances at him in the hope he will dally with them. I have too much pride for such behaviour. However, I cannot help one final glance as we stand to end the service. He smiles and my heart tells me it is too late. But I still do not realise that this man, Robert Burns, will have anything to do with my destiny.<
