QOTD for Friday 01/05/24

The Following quote is from Go Tell the Bees I am Gone, by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 10, Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme. Copyright 2021, All rights reserved.

This quote is describing Roger, Bree, and the kids returning to Frazer’s Ridge

“We almost didn’t make it,” Roger said quietly. He looked at the children asleep on the settle. Mandy had fallen over and was sprawled on her face, limp as Esmeralda. “It was Mandy who got us through---and you,” he added raising his eyes to Jamie, with a slight smile.

“Me?”

“You wrote a book,” Bree said softly looking at him. “A Grandfather’s Tales. And you thought to put a copy in the box with your letters.”
. . . . . .

Jamie made a small sound in his throat---the only inarticulate Scottish noise I’d ever heard from him. I looked away and saw that Jem was awake; he hadn’t moved but his eyes were open. He sat up slowly and leaned forward, elbows on his knees.

“It’s okay Grandda,” he said, his voice froggy and deep. “Don’t cry. Ye got us here safe.”

This is maybe a bit too long, but I just love this whole passage…..
