Limiting the blurb to 150 words is extra hard this week, but I gave it a shot. For full rules on writing your own blurb and to read more entries, go to Lisa's blog at:
Lawrence, Kansas-1968 Camille Wilkins was heading back to college while her longtime boyfriend shipped out for war. Although no real promises, it was understood she would be waiting for Jeff when he returned from Vietnam.
By the spring semester, the rainy season moved onto the KU campus. One soaking Wednesday she raced into Professor Clark’s philosophy class to see a grad student taking over the teaching. With damp curls stuck to her head and soaking feet, she was mesmerized by Mr. Stone, a man 15 years her senior, speaking on Aquinas.
But the lecture was less fascinating than the dark lock that coiled over his forehead, the permanent dimple resting near his lips. His cabled vest sweater and the pipe that peeked out of his shirt pocket all called to Camille like sirens calling sailors at sea.
Would Camille’s common sense stay afloat or wash away in the spring rains?
