The following is a snippet from my books AS ONE MUST ONE CAN and A STONE FOR THE JOURNEY. Rachel is a favorite character of mine. Perhaps I’ll write a novel about her in the future. At the very least, a short story. 😉
Genre: Historical Fiction circa 1907
Word Count! 100
Miss Kline glanced at three-year-old Rachel and back at Havah. “She’s—”
“Blind.” Rachel grinned. “I don’t have floppy nerves.”
“Optic nerves,” said Havah.
“May I play piano for Miss Kline, Mommy?”
“Play something pretty.”
Rachel’s dog led her to the upright piano and lay down next to it so Rachel could use her for a step stool.
“Surely you don’t allow her to bang on that lovely instrument,” whispered Miss Kline.
Havah smiled but said nothing. Rachel danced her tiny fingers across the keys.
Miss Kline clapped her hand over her mouth. “Bless my soul, it’s… it’s… Bach’s ‘Musette’!”
