Ginger's Six Sentence Sunday

Sundays seem to roll around faster and faster.  Welcome back, or if you're a first timer, I'm sharing six sentences from my time-travel romance with an historical twist, Sister's in Time.  The story isn't confusing when read as a whole, but in bits and pieces, it requires a little set up.  

Two women switch bodies and eras, finding themselves far removed from their own husbands and comfort level.  Mariah, my pioneer wife is in a modern-day hospital, meeting a television for the first time:

When the nurse pushed another button, the screen immediately changed to a man kissing a woman. She depressed the button again—a person cooking, then someone talking about feminine hygiene. Mariah’s mouth gaped. Why would they talk about such a private thing? What was this thing called a remote control? Was it a product of the devil himself?

Find Sisters in Time at Eternal Press or on Amazon.



Be sure to check back at Six Sentence Sunday for more links from the SSS participants.  I have so many favorites there I'm following.  You're bound to get hooked.  Make sure to visit Angela Quarles, who features another time-travel that I'm loving.

Haha. Hilarious. I can't imagine how strange it might be for someone to be plopped into the future. I wonder if she even gets that those are (moving) pictures and not real people in the 'box'?

Paula Martin said...

It always fascinates me, wondering how people in the past would react to today's world. I love her reaction to the TV.

Cate Masters said...

Ha, that's what I think sometimes! Love it, Ginger.

Jennifer Wilck said...

I love time travel! Great reaction and great six!

Veronica Scott said...

Very imaginative take on how time travel would affect someone! Enjoyed the excerpt...

Angela Quarles said...

Nice reaction! Would she even know a what a button was in this context? But it sounds like from this snippet that that was probably explained just prior. fun 6!

Fantastic work!

Leah St. James said...

Love the concept, and I'm really glad she referred to the devil as a "him"!

Sue Ann Bowling said...

Heck, I can't figure out all those channels when I'm in the hospital. No wonder she consider the remote a work of the devil.

Patricia Green said...

When it comes to TV, I think the remote most certainly *is* a thing from hell. Second only to the age-old nemesis, the VCR clock. Great snippet, Ginger!

It would be really strange to swap time era's! You have described this very well!

I'm afraid I'd be terrified of everything in the future. Returning to the past might be easier... though I wouldn't want to work as hard as those women did.
Great story line!

Jessica K said...

Oh, yes, I just love these kinds of time travel incidents. Charming six!

Carrie-Anne said...

Fun sample! Time travel stories always interested me.

Monica Enderle Pierce said...

The answer to that last question is, "Hell, yes. And it must be purged." This poor woman's head is gonna explode!
