“The boulder on which he sat was one of many littering the beach, detritus left by the receding ice nine thousand years earlier. The glaciers were long gone but the sea continued to arrive. With every tide it stole more of the land, gnawing a wide circle of limestone out of the bay of Tra Li. “Tralee” referred to the shore of a small river which ran into the sea at that point. A sparkling, laughing river hurrying home.”

“ … Brendan was preparing to write a journal–iris in the Irish language—a word which also could mean faith or belief. Over the years a number of people had urged him to make a record of his extraordinary adventures. He had always declined. Until yesterday. When the project became a compulsion.”

San Francisco 1890. I have taken a loft on Montgomery street and accepting offers to model for struggling artists hoping to further my own career. So far my very rich daddy hasn't figured it out yet :rolleyes:

On the campaign trail in Florida in a big Winnebago that's painted bright orange with the logo for Orange Crush on the side. :rolleyes: Inside is the Governor of Florida, his chief of staff, a press secretary, a very mute girl and a lawyer. And dead people with slogans written on their chests in Magic Markers keep appearing in various places.

I'm just on my way home after spending the night with Emperor Domitian who's mistress I am.

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

A Woman of San Francisco by Lynn Erickson. Had possibilities, fell apart unfortunately. Way too much sugar in the HEA for my tastes. Review on ammy or my blog.
