I'm in Honolulu in 1893 about to get shipped to the leper colony on Moloka'i. Not looking forward to the trip! (Although it's a very good book)

In London getting ready for my sweet cousins coming out ball, being poor relation I'm attending but not in the same manner. Here shortly I'll be taking a post as a governess/companion since I'm a hand full for my Aunt and Uncle and I dread it.

I am currently a very special 'guest' a Castle Leoch, having suddenly found myself in a completely different century than where I started!

I am back stuck in a ship in the Arctic ice, and there is something stalking my fellow crew members.

I'm in the small town of Forks, WA, sulking because my boyfriend left me for my own good.

I'm ALSO at Berkhampsted, in 1485, visiting with the nun formerly known as Cecily, Duchess of York. (I suppose she is still known as such, actually.)
