Sarah landed in London, just hoping to leave her home behind and escape her family. But she didn’t plan on falling headfirst into Carson’s arms.

Deleted Scene from WHAT HAPPENS IN LONDON:

The guard led us to a patch of bright green grass dominated by a round glass sculpture.  We paused there, and she cleared her throat.  “This is the spot of execution for Nan Boleyn, Katherine Howard, and others you’ve no doubt heard of in your history books.  This monument was built to honor their memories.  Take a moment here if you like; we’ll meet at that chapel over there.”

I studied the glass sculpture.  It listed the names of the people who had been executed on this spot, and there was a poem written around the side.  “Here jeweled names were broken,” I read aloud, my voice catching.  “How sad.”  I knew a little bit about history, and I’d always been horrified by the king who killed his wives. I bet he and my dad would get along great—words can be as sharp as an ax. With a shiver, I reached for Carson’s hand.

 “Not a proud moment of our history, that’s for sure.”
We stood there in silence for a moment, and then he squeezed my hand.  I squeezed back, holding onto his warmth and strength.  He pulled me toward the chapel where the rest of the group was waiting, but I looked back at the monument as we walked. 

To enter, you need to know that my lucky book number is 7.
