Brenda Jerniganabout this book: I wanted to write a story that would make you smile and take you away for a little while from your everyday world. Here is a peek of The Wicked Lady.
Kristen could smell the salt water and hear the rude comments of the dock workers, letting her know they were nearing the river. All the blood had rushed to her head from hanging upside down and her temples pounded. She looked up to see her brother starting for them, and Kristen frantically waved him away.
"Let go of my sister." The sandy-haired child ran over and kicked the man following them.
"Run, Hagan! Run!"
"Now, what do we have here?" Robbie picked the child up by the collar "A little scamp?"
"Leave my sister alone!" Hagan swung at Robbie, barely missing his nose.
"This gets more interesting all the time." Robbie tucked Hagan under his arm and started up the gangplank.
"No!" Kristen managed to scream in her upside down position. "I--I can't swim." She started thrashing around, beating her hands on his back.
"Then I suggest you quit struggling," came a deep voice from someone she couldn't see, but was certain she'd not heard before. One that sent shivers down her spine.
She had to think fast. "Hagan, I told ye tae stay home. Now look what's happened. Don't ye say a thing, ye hear."
"Look Kristen. 'Tis a ship," Hagan breathed. The child wasn't any more worried than a flea on a dog.
