Ginger's Six Sentence Sunday

Howdy.  I missed ya'll last week because I had house guests.  It's rude to wander off and play on the computer, so I missed posting and I also missed reading the great snippets I follow each week.  But, I'm back today with another six from my current WIP, Hattie's Hero.  When you finish reading my six, head back to Six Sentence Sunday for more links.  What a great way to spend an afternoon.  :)

The last time we visited Hattie, she had just met with Mr. Franklin who took her home to meet the Mrs.  He wasn't very tactful...and in answer to someone's comment...his attempt at whispering failed.  Sometimes the dratted seventh sentence holds a key.  :) This week, the women are sharing a cup of tea as part of the interview for Hattie to accompany the family on the wagon train trek to California, and she's just been asked if the compensation is fair. 

Here's this week's six:


“Oh, yes ma’am. My expectations are minimal, as are my belongings. I assure you, you won’t be disappointed if you select me.”
“I believe you, Miss Carson, and I like your gumption.”  Mrs. Franklin drained the last of her tea and placed the cup and saucer back on the silver tray. “The first order of business is to make sure you understand this won’t be an easy undertaking. I would hate for you to decide somewhere in the middle of nowhere that you weren’t cut out for the job.”

 Hope you enjoyed my six. The cover I've shared is the proposed cover, but the more I write, the more it isn't fitting as I hoped it would.  I've changed directions, and although the book starts off in the old west, Hattie time-travels to modern day.  I look forward to the comments, which are all usually very encouraging.  I hope you continue to follow Hattie's saga and are as excited as I am to get it finished.  I'm closing in on the ending.  :)

Interesting six, Hattie sounds very sensible and realistic. Look forward to what will happen when they set off on the wagon train.

Enjoyed the six, haven't read a good wagon train train type novel in a long time so I'm anticipating this one!
