Six Sentence Sunday

I don't usually do Six Sentence Sunday, but I thought today was a good day.  It's Mother's Day and the DH is entertaining the little dudes.  So, here are the first six sentences of my story.

Happy Mother's Day to all of you mothers out there!  I hope you have a great day, full of people you love.


Singing must bring a person closer to God.
It was the only way Evangeline Haywood could explain the joy that washed over her—no, through her—when the music took her. Her parents didn’t exist. Neither did the looming marriage to the man she didn’t like. Standing in the little salon behind the Grey Swan Public House, nothing else existed, only the breath in her lungs and the song in her bones.  And it was heaven.


  1. This is lovely. :) I love the "song in her bones" phrase -- it makes it so clear how important singing is to her.


  2. Thanks, Donna! I am excited about this one. It's fun to start something new. :)
