#NewRelease of #HistoricalRomance Véronique’s Journey by Patti Flinn @XpressoTours #reads #books #99cents

Véronique’s Journey by Patti Flinn will release Thursday in the Adult, Historical genre.

In 18th century France, the choices for a young black woman of modest means are slim.

Véronique Clair loves her parents and their small home in the countryside of Burgundy but dreams of using her talent for sewing and embroidery to make her own way, without having to rely on a man.

When Véronique’s well-meaning parents find her a suitor of elevated station their happiness turns into her despair. Véronique must make the difficult choice between agreeing to an arranged marriage–with its promise of elevated status in society–or embark upon an unpredictable journey across France and into a world she’s never known.

…for a young woman of honor, only the heart can guide the way.

I was sitting at the dinner table scooping potato mash onto my plate one Sunday when we were interrupted by a pounding on the door. We didn’t get many visitors in the country, so I looked in alarm at my parents. My father did not mirror my expression. He simply stood and walked to the door while my mother busied herself pouring tea into cups and setting down another plate beside me. I looked down at the plate and up at her in question when my father entered the kitchen. He was followed by a black man wearing a long coat trimmed in white and a cravat, holding a three-leaved hat in one hand with his other behind his back. He was tall, with dark brown skin. He nodded at my mother and I caught a glimpse of the thinning hair at his crown. He couldn’t have been older than twenty-eight or nine, but he carried himself like a much older man. He looked at me, awkwardly.

“Mademoiselle,” he said. 

“For goodness sake, Véronique, will you put those potatoes on your plate and greet our guest?” my mother said, suddenly seeming nervous and giddy all at once.
