When revenge crosses the centuries, it only has one outcome.
Below is a short excerpt from Chapter 22
Jenny gazed at the beauty surrounding her, and was lost for words. Lynette had seen the same look before, when friends had visited for the first time. She wanted to tell Jenny,, what she saw was miniscule compared to the sightes they had in store for her.
"That mountain ahead" Jim continued, "Is four to five thousand feet high."
"A mere hill" Jenny said sardonically.
Jim tried, but couldn't hide his astonishment, with a glance over his shoulder, he saw Jenny smiling, and laughed, "Joking? Yeah?"
"We call it Kerry's hill, after our youngest." he said proudly.
"That's a nice thing to do" she answered, "I doubt I've been named after anything."
Lynette explained, "when the snow falls it spells out Kerry, because of the line the trees lie."
Jenny suddenly felt as though she was invading their private lives. "I hope you don't mind me staying with you" she apologised.
"Not at all." Lynette promised, "Jim's taken some days off work, we're looking forward to showing you some of the places we enjoy visiting."
"I can hardly wait" Jenny said drowsily, whispering to herself, "the Kenai penisula" before falling asleep.
"She stayed longer than I thought she'd manage" Jim chuckled, his eyes on the long road ahead.
"It's a long flight from Edinburgh to Alaska, I thought she'd be a dripping mess when we picked her up. How long do you think she'll sleep?"
"I'll give her two hours" he smirked, "I remember what she was like as a kid, nothing stops her, not even eighteen hours in a plane!"
