My snippet this week is from The Scholar's Heart, which will be out on May 30th (only a couple more weeks!). Last week's snippet was a sweet moment during a ride that Etan and Tristan are taking together one morning. But Etan notices on their ride that something is worrying Tristan, and he'd about to find out what it is.
Etan let Tristan have his silence, though it pained him to do so. He wanted to help, to make whatever it was right again. Tristan had cheered him up often enough, and they’d bolstered each other’s strength through bad times. But Tristan had to speak in his own time, and he’d never actually ask for help even when he did.
Tristan didn’t speak until they were almost all the way back to Jumelle. “My father wants me to marry.”
Have a wonderful weekend!
