Snippet Sunday 15/09/13 - New Beginnings

 
Welcome to Snippet Sunday !
 
I received wonderful and kind comments last week for my first "Snippet" and thank everyone for stopping by!
My Snippet Sunday today is as well from my latest release
 "New Beginnings"
 
 
 
Blurb:
Twenty-two-year-old Sophie Levesque has been guardian to eight-year-old sister Mia since their mother’s death a few years ago. Luck comes their way when they inherit a small house in Hobart. Problem is, though, they don’t know or have even heard of Clara Bellinger, the testator, and Sophie is afraid it’s all been a mistake.
As Mia settles well into her new school and life in general, Sophie is not only occupied by her search of what connected her to Clara, but also her new studies and the two men, who suddenly have become part of her daily life - Mark O’Connor, the lawyer representing Clara’s estate, and Zach, the hunk from across the road.
 
 

Sophie stared at the house. With tears stinging behind her eyelids, she slowly turned around and helped Mia out of the car. The little girl looked fragile in the unfamiliar environment, even though she wasn’t anywhere near fragile. Very clever for her age,  Mia had seen and gone through a lot, but handled most situations with trust and belief. Sophie wasn’t sure whether that was a good thing or not. Her younger sister undoubtedly had her mother’s looks, with the long, straight blond hair, her bright grey-green eyes, and pale skin. But deep down inside, there was a survivor instinct as well. Something, she wondered, her mother might have lacked. “Is this our new home, Sophie?” her sister asked quietly. Hesitantly she nodded. “Yes, sweetie, I hope so.”

    This bit in particular struck me---it descibes Mia and gives a strong sense of their mother in three beautiful sentences. Well done!

  3. This snippet says a lot; about her anxiety and uncertainty in face of a new situation. By describing the sister you also show the mother. This is supposed to be their new home, but Sophie doesn't quite dare believe it's so. This made me want to know more.

  6. Nice snippet. I'm curios now why she got the house. I always like a little mystery in a story. :)
