‘Snow Moon at Eyre Hall’ Chapter 29 #Preview #Amwriting #Amediting

Good morning and happy Friday!

I’m struggling (we authors are always struggling, whether or not we’re established and famous!) with my final edits of Snow Moon at Eyre Hall, to be published in February 2022, and I thought I’d give you a sneak peek of the first paragraphs, about 280 words, of chapter 29 called Return to Eyre Hall.

8 am at my writing desk, in my tiny study with my three basic tools, my tea, my laptop and my creativity!

Chapter 29 – Return to Eyre Hall


Huge white snowflakes whirled before falling on the thick snow which covered the lawns of Eyre Hall. I craned my neck to glimpse at the silver clouds sliding across the waning gibbous moon and the fragments of jet-black sky peppered with tiny sparkling stars.

Helen pointed to the ground. “Why has the snow got a blue glow?”

“It must reflect the light of the moon. If there was a new moon, the snow would be black,” I replied.

“I forgot it was so pretty. Max says it never snows in Beachill.”

Annette rushed out to greet us when she heard our coach. “Come inside quickly, there’s a frightful gale.” A young girl Annette called Trish, took our coats and said she’d carry our luggage upstairs to the new wing.

We stepped into a drawing room ablaze with the furious burning of crackling wood. I gasped. It was just as we had left it.

“What’s wrong?” asked Annette.

I waved my hands in the air. “Nothing has changed.”

“Why would it? I love the way you decorated Eyre Hall, Jane. It’s perfect.”

I searched for the house I built and once lived in and imagined I would never leave. The furniture, the paintings, the candleholders, and chandeliers were identical. “And yet nothing is the same.”

Michael’s hands rested on my shoulders. “Shall I kindle the fire, mistress?”

I turned to face him. “It seems such a long time ago, Michael.”

“Eight months since we last came and fifteen months since we lived here,” he replied, but it didn’t matter how many days or months had passed, we had returned to a different place in another lifetime.
